I just added SLI and now some games do not load, why??

post #1 of 3

I assumed this would be the geforce drivers causing the game to no longer work so I have downloaded and clean installed the 314.22 , 320.49 , and 326.19 drivers with no change. I know that before I installed the second GTX 670 for SLI the games Tomb Raider, Assassins Creed 3, and Hitman Absolution worked fine. I played these before the install. Also games Sniper Elite Nazi Zombie and it seems like one more I bought after the install does not work either. Now when I say it doesn't work, the game only goes to a black screen and does nothing. CTL/ALT/DEL and End task to get out. All of the games are through Steam but even after deleteing and redownloading and installing the game it didn't change anything.

I can only assume it is related to the video card since when I had one everything seemed to play just fine. Should I disable or remove and card to see if things work again? Is there some kind of software problem I don't know about? When I installed the drivers I clicked clean install in the setup process.

Now with all that said I do have some games that will play and seem to without problems like Borderlands 2, Skyrim, Amnesia.

This is killing me. I was thinking of doing a wipe of my hard drives and reloading everything but maybe there is an easier way.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
16GB RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 x2 ( SLI)
SSD hard drives

Thanks

I have had issues with SLI where it thinks the monitor is hooked to a different card than it really is. I would go into nvidia control panel and mess around with where it shows what cards has the primary display, etc. Or you could just try to hook your monitor to the newer added card and see what that does.

I just wanted to to add that I found my problem. It was Rivatuner Statistics Server. No idea why but it kept 4 games from loading.

Only way I found it was I remembered in my excitement of getting my new GPU I downloaded a bunch of benchmark software to test things and the rivatuner piggy backs in on EVGA Precision X. I just went through and deleted a few at a time until I noticed the Rivatuner running in the background. I closed it and everything works. Maybe there was a bad install or maybe it was just bugged for me but I thought I would follow up on this because you never know if it could be the problem for someone else.
