Twin 7600gt problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Please Please Please can someone help me???:



I have 2x identical 7600gt's that work absolutly fine individually, returning 79000 aquamark points.

The problem arises when I try and have them both running at the same time.

Under device manager one of the cards returns a code 10 this device cannot start.

As I say I have tried both cards individually and both cards in both pci-ex slots to rule out motherboard problems.

This is bugging th ***t out of me so help will be much appreciated.

Did you enable SLi? ;-)

Also, did you hook them together correctly for sli?

I have tried with and without the sli link, with the link nvidia control panel reports that sli has been turned off as one of the gpu's has been removed, even when it is still in place.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling drivers?

I'm having an SLI problem myself. For some reason my 8800's only run at something like 108/337 when SLI'ed. That's what 3Dmark06 says they are at anyways, and I get quite a low score for my setup.

I have uninstalled the drivers for the cards and the mother board and used driver cleaner pro to make sure with no effect, if I can't sort it I fear a complete re-install of xp!!

Just finished re-installing EVERYTHING.

Am now getting both cards to work properly together in SLI but only got a 7000 point increase in aquamark, from 70000 to 77000. the individual score for the gfx went from 12000 to 13000.

Surely i should have expected more.

Help!
