Second graphics card not discovered

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Right now i am trying to add my old 8800 gts back into my rig to drive another pair of monitors. i know its possible to do so, but when i tried it, device manager doesnt recognize that the 8800 gts is there. the motherboard is tri-sli capable, so it should be able to handle it out of sli. I've checked that its got power, and i know the card is in working order, so it comes down to some setting or other thats preventing it. I've tried reseating the card, however it might be that it wants the cards in slots 1 and 3, where i have them in slots 1-2 (pump is in the way). just looking for things to try that i might've missed.

I could see maybe the slot mattering if you were trying to do SLI (on certain boards it does) but not for it just to be seen within WIndows period. Try swapping your existing card to that slot ... does the slot work?

It works well enough to error out at the BIOS to say that its detected and to put it in PC slot 1. Beyond that, can't tell.

Just out of curiosity, is your Q6600 overclocked at all? Your running Q6600 with a GTX 580 right?

Its a b3 that doesn't like to overclock. I've had no luck with even minor over clocks, so stock it is. Ivy bridge is on its way.

Good because that CPU is a massive bottleneck for that GPU running at 2.4 GHz.

Yea, I know. I'm slowly phasing major components out. Got a good deal from another member though. Not really the point.

I eventually got it working, apparently my motherboard does care which slots get used in what order, even in non-sli. So, right now my cooling pump is hanging out the side of the case, but all screens are running. However i do not know for how long due to there being something differant (driver not found or the card going back to not being found) on ever restart this morning.

All this tells me is i need a new case.
