Thanks smile.gif Hopefully you'll have an easier time than me.

I uninstalled SP1, but it didn't solve the problem. I'm going to try DriverSweeper another time to see if that works. If that doesn't work, then I'll reinstall Windows from my original disc.

Well, that didn't work. Looks like I get to reinstall Windows, again. Hopefully this fixes the problem.

Um ... I hope I'm wrong on this, but ... there are no 460's TTBOMK that have only one 6-pin PCI-Ex power cable. Where did you get this card w/only one 6-pin, exactly? Can you post a picture of it, front and back? I'm thinking it may be a counterfeit card ...

Hey, brett, Galaxy released a green version GTX460 which uses only one 6-pin PCIe connector. But as the OP said the cards are 'reference' and the Galaxy card surely is not reference, I am equally curious to have to look.

As for OP's problem, I suggest:-
a. Switch the SLI bridge around to see if this works.
b. Try a 2nd bridge
c. Try a 3rd bridge
d. Disable onboard Realtek sound (as it might have conflict with SLI). First try disable the device in the Device Manager. Then, go the distance to uninstall the drivers.

Did you install the SLI Profile 7? I had this glitch, SLI profiles fixed it. Also download Driver Cleaner and remove anything with the name NVIDIA. Redownload the 275.33, selceted advanced install, and do a clean install. Following this process step by step enabled SLI on my motherboard.

I'll post a picture of my card after I get back from work.
It appears to be this one though. My original card is a PNY, and the new one is an OEM model, which seems to only have one pin:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...60-oem-us.html

Both of the cards show up the same in GPUz, except for the manufacturer, and both play games at around the same fps.

I'm going to try a different SLI bridge today or tomorrow when I can get one from a friend. Right now I don't have any extra drivers, like Realtek, because I just re-installed windows.

I've tried switching the cards, but it's worth another shot.

I tried using Driver Sweeper several times, but it didn't help. I have since re-installed windows, and it still doesn't work.


Thanks to everyone for all of the input
