GTX 580 SLI Issues

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey There folks!
I've just upgraded my Sig Rig, so I'm now running SLI 580's.
The thing is, every time I try to open a Full Screen game, the screen starts flickering with a green color. Mostly looking like it's 50% of the information passed to the screen is just green.
Second issue is that when I try to turn off the pc, it'll exit Windows as it's suppose to, but after that, the screen just goes black, and it keeps idling, doing literally nothing. I then have to hit the "Power" button for a few secs for it to turn off.
Anybody got any idea on how to fix it?

Try out both cards individually... one might need to be returned or something.

Have you installed the latest drivers?

Hey man, Sounds like an SLI bridge problem, are both GPU's maxing 100%?

Ensure you have EVerything set to default in Nv Control panel, (maybe change to max power, trip buff on, single display, recommended rendering)

I had a similar thing in Vantage a while ago, a new bridge sorted it out

One of the cards is brand new, the other I've been using for about a year (without any issues). They're off different brands, but according to Nvidia's homepage it shouldn't be an issue.
The shut down problem seems to not be there, might have something to do with Restart instead, not completely sure, I'll check that out later.
I have the latest Nvidia drivers, but I'll try to reinstall with a clean install. smile.gif.
I also have an extra SLI-bridge so I'll try that out when I get home.

Got it working. Swapped out the SLI-Bridge with another one, and I used the second row of SLI-gates or W/E they are called. smile.gif

Nice one! i knew it was the Bridge!

MAke sure you have a Solid PCB one, as the flexi ones are shoddy!

I only have flexi ones. biggrin.gif
And I'm sure if I decide to other one of the PCB ones, I'll end up ordering one in a wrong length. xD
