Meaning your trying to run the second graphics card as the primary?

Does it work fine in Windows, playing games etc in Crossfire, I.E your can load it etc?

If not this unfortunetly just happened to a card of mine it sort of oddly died it was detected just not working nor was bootable.

Try Isolating it and see if it will boot.

Need more info plox.

This is what I wanted to know since this is my first crossfire setup but not the first time overclocking/modding etc. haha.

I was wondering the second GPU (2nd PCI-E) is inactive at boot due to BIOS? ULPS enabled (auto disable if not used)?

Or all Crossfire intended this way?

I've tested each card one by one removed one or another but they stay in the same slots. They both can boot fine but I can only boot with 1st PCI-E if I crossfire it. If I plug into the second PCI-E, it won't even output anything to the monitor. The windows load up all the time.

Indeed, Crossfire in game is perfect. I'm hitting 150-200 FPS in Dirt 3 and Crysis 2 Ultra mode with 45-70 FPS.

I do not have a second monitor at the moment to test. ;/

Can't you plug everything into the one GPU?

I'm running 3 Monitors off 1 GPU, even though I crossfire.
