Second SLI EVGA GTX580 No longer recognized

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm running into an issue I'm hoping you can help me solve. I am running dual EVGA hydrocopper GTX580s and today I noticed that my computer is no longer recognizing one of the cards. It no longer shows up in device manager and under the nvidia control panel. The light on the card is still on so I'm assuming it is still getting enough power. Everything was running fine until this. Do you know of any way to trouble shoot this without taking the card out. I have a danger den case which unfortunately makes trouble shooting a pain in the ass.

Thanks for the help!

seems like your motherboard is pooping out. I have the extreme 4 motherboard and i kinda went though a similar issue, try running with only the 2nd card installed, also try swapping or even running with a single stick of ram in different DIMM slots.

EDIT: try running with the a card installed in the second PCI-E slot. if that doesnt work try running your system with a single card and see if that works.

Alright, cleared CMOS, rebooted with one card, then rebooted with the other and we're back to normal. Not sure what the hell just happened but it seems to be back to normal for now.

I litterly have this same issue on my ASRock Z77 OC Formula. My 2nd GTX 580 just randomly stoped working one day after i found my machine locked up, i rebooted and got 00, which resetting BIOS fixed, but 2nd card still no display. I tried it in the top PCIEx16 slot and it shows up fine though.
