I would be inclined to say no, it's not burned out. It wasn't designed to be the primary slot. I would say that something changed in the BIOS and it reverted back to using the first PCIe slot as the primary.

I would be surprised that you saw any signal when only having one card in. Just like on a two cpu board you run one single card in the first slot while a single cpu on a twin socket AMD FX-74 board requires you run it in socket #1. The bios setting simply reloaded to the default there.
