Im still opting for the bridge.
When i removed the bridge from mine (doing the diagnostics for you), i did a driver clean, then pulled the bridge, then let windows find the drivers... thats when i noticed no "SLI" option.

To get the SLI option back, I had to reinstall the bridge, do another driver sweep (in safe mode of course), then booted up and installed the most recent beta drivers from Nvidia (the BF3 drivers) and then rebooted. Everything worked fine after that.

Heres a link to the drivers i used.

At least give that a try ^ - since you have no other way of troubleshooting unless you spend more money on spares. Without a working sli motherboard to test your cards on, it's impossible to eliminate that your motherboard pci e slots are faulty. If it's not too late, can you return the cards and get a single card solution at the same price? If that's not an option, and other suggestions like reinstall with another new sli bridge, or different install of drivers don't work:

Your only other option is to get a new motherboard and sell your current one.

I'm also having this same issue.. and everything for me was running fine (SLI enabled etc) until I installed the 285.79 beta driver. So I personally am quite leery of installing that driver again as a "fix"
