Nvidia drivers and SLi

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
well i officially hate the new drivers are set up. I have the newest (93.71) official driver and the way you set up is totally different than the older versions. I want to see if my SLi is enabled or is even detected but when i go to "set SLi configuration" i get this..

I mean... what am i suppose to do with this? it doesnt tell me anything...

Does this mean i have SLi but theres nothing i can do to set anything?

That screen will change when you actually have two video cards plugged into your system.

Notice how it says "Add a second SLI-ready graphics card..."

As my specs say, i do have 2 7800 GTX's installed and yes SLi is enabled and everything.

Thats where i'm confused because if you look above that it says "your graphics cards feature NVIDIA sli technology..."

so yea, are there no setting adjustments to SLi?

This is a known issue with the 93.71 drivers. I believe it was never fixed until 96.xx beta version.
But its still a good idea to check your device manager to verify SLI is recognized.
I suggest rolling back to the last know driver that displayed SLI correctly. The 91.47 and 92.91 are displaying correctly from what I have seen.

the new drivers 91 and one have that display. you can change it back to the old way. but the new screen is much more accurate at ocling than the older 1. well to switch back to the old way go just like you normally would and just simplya it will ask you are you sure. but once you do you are stuck with the old way.

tried using the older 91.47 drivers. Still no go. My device manager and display props show me having 2 7800 GTX's, but the driver still doesnt recognize it as SLi compatible, also tried changing bridges but that doesnt work either. Just got back an RMA'd mobo and i have used these 2 cards in SLi before on my ASUS A8N-SLi. Does the DFI Expert need to have something enabled in bios or what?
I cant figure this out
