GTX590 and GeForce 210 won't work together

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I have a strange problem , i just got additional GPU which was meant to power my secondary monitor but it wont work with my GTX590.
First of all i went my second monitor on a separate card because I've noticed improvement in how smooth games are if 590 is only powering single monitor.
Other reason is when i connect 2 monitors 2nd GPU on my 590 never goes to idle and in result has a higher temperature/voltage which also rises the temp of the 1st GPU.
So i bought GeForce 210 for the sole purpose of powering 2nd monitor (PhysX is staying on 590) but as i said it wont work.
Now here's what's happening:

When i install both cards my Windows won't boot , it looks like it's booting but it takes about 10 minutes just to get to the login , after that everything is is so slow you can see wallpaper appear on the screen inch by inch , i tried couple of times but lost patience after 40 minutes , Win Explorer always crashes after around 30 min and it doesn't look like it's going to work anyway.
I tried swapping cards around in the slots, erasing the drivers , tried booting in the safe mode (same slow boot) , startup repair , nothing helps.
When installed separately both cards work fine Windows boots without problem , all fine and dandy.

I would appreciate some help , anybody saw this issue before ?

Did you make sure to uninstall all the Nvidia Drivers and clean them out?

While you have only a single card (GTX 590) in there, uninstall all your drivers from Control Panel and clean any remaining Nvidia Display and Physx Drivers with Driver Sweeper. Then power off the machine, and install the second card (GT210). Then download and install the latest drivers for the GTX 590 (it will install the drivers for the other card too).

If it does not work, have you tried swapping the cards around (GT210 in the first slot, and GTX 590 in the second slot)?

EDIT -Just read you did all that ..... Also, there may be a conflict with the cards with SLI being enabled on the GTX 590. You might need to disable that and see if that does anything.

I'm almost sure that what you are trying to do is impossible. If you add a different card, it'll only work for PhysX. You can only run monitors off the primary GPU, or SLI'd GPUs.

Yes tried both , used driver sweeper , swapped cards around , didn't help.

How can i use it for PhysX if it won't boot ? , i didn't even connect the second monitor , I'd have to boot the Windows to see the picture anyway.

Incorrect.

I'm running a 590 on 1 monitor while my 580 powers the 2 outside...It absolutely can be done.

First of all, install 1 card, 1 monitor.

I'm on the 275ish drivers because the 280's sucked.

After driver is installed and card is on 1 monitor...Power down the PC and install the second card in a lower slot.

Don't plug it into the 2nd monitor, yet.

Load in, go to Nvidia control panel, make sure the 2nd card exists, power down again.

Install the 2nd monitor now to the slaved card.

Go to nvidia control panel, set it as Physx and viola.

There should be no conflict as windows 7 can take up to 4 drivers...This may be your issue especially if you didn't driversweep and there's an inherent conflict.

It should actually work, because I have done the exact same thing myself on my older system (using a GTX 285 + an 8800GT). But my guess is the SLI being enabled is causing the problem. If he had (for example) two GTX 580s in SLI instead of the GTX 590, you can only run dual monitors off of the primary card in SLI. The secondary card cannot be used for seperate monitors unless SLI is disabled.

How'd it go?

I went through all the steps like you said sadly to no avail.
First thing i noticed is even though i did driver sweep and reboot installation of 275.33 WHQL prompted me that newer versions of the files are already on my system , when i chose to overwrite them installation failed at PhysX driver.
I rebooted and installed it again , it installed fine this time but i got the same result as soon as i popped the 210 in.
I tried 280.26 with the same result.
I tried to install 210 first than add 590 no go .
What i noticed this time when i tried to "power through" boot with the 210 installed i get BSOD before login screen it says problem was with nvlddmkm.sys , i think it was machine check exception (not sure though).
No idea what to do now short of reinstalling the whole system.
