Second video card stopped detecting

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 2 GTX 680s in SLI.

Today, after restarting my computer, it seems that my second video card is no longer being detected. I have no idea what caused this and I'm not sure how to diagnose if it's the video card of my motherboard without disassembling my loop.

Any ideas?

Try plugging removing the SLI bridge and plugging the monitor into the 2nd card, see if it boots up like that.

Uninstall and reinstall drivers to see if it see's it. Double check you device manager to see if Windows notices it. If both of those fails, you will have to just remove the card in question and test it by itself.

If your motherboard has pci-e disable switches that would allow you to test the card on its own in the loop, otherwise all you can really do is swap around the pci-e power cables to rule out a PSU cable issue.
To test if it is the card or the board, you pretty much have to test the cards in the different pci-e slots.

I did this and it didn't work; however, as soon as windows booted and plugged my monitor cable into my first card, I opened EVGA precision and it's detecting my second card again.

I have a feeling this is a motherboard issue...
