Newbie with Nvidia question?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi im basically brand new to everything computer based, just built my own not too long ago and of course ive got a couple questions.

Right now my main concern is with my SLI, if i enable sli it runs awesome until i restart the computer For some reason the video cards arent even detected and the only fix i can find is to reinstall the nvidia drivers. Sooo what i have been doing is turning on sli when i need it and turning it off before i shut the computer down. any help would be appreciated. Thanx

I don't have much experience with SLI but it is probably a bios setting that you need to adjust to for it to recognize the that the two cards are linked. I have found that nVidia GPUs get very unhappy when they don't have a monitor connected. this setting would likely be in the "Northbridge" section in the tab labeled "Chipset" in your bios. You might also check for bios updates on MSI's website
