No Multi-GPU option in NVidia control panel

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I just got a used GTX 690 and installed it and the drivers. I started off having monitor connectivity issues due to the odd way that the display connectors are configured with each GPU. After learning that all monitors have to be connected to the same GPU, I switched my connectors around, but now I get no display at all. I moved my primary display back to the "1st" GPU (the connector on the top left when the PC is viewed from behind), and it works, but I only get support for one monitor. After researching, I learned I needed to possibly change Multi-GPU mode, but I can't see it. Where the control panel would normally say "Configure Multi-GPU, Surround, PhysX" it just says "Configure Surround, PhysX." Any advice?

If a graphics card isn't showing up, I would check your hardware in the control panel and make sure the card is connecting properly.

I don't know whether it's supposed to show up as one or two, but I only get one GTX 690 under display adapters.

There should be two. You could first just restart your computer and see if it shows up. After that, disconnect one card and figure out which one isn't showing up.

I've already restarted many times. And I can't unplug one, it's a GTX 690 which means there are two cards on one piece of silicon.

Ooh. Sorry, I was thinking 2 cards.

How many monitors do you have? Have you done "configure surround". That should show you the proper configuration.

Mr. Fridge Gnome is still right that there should be two devices showing up in the device manager, not just one.

I'd try looking for any updates like a newer BIOS on the EVGA page (it's an EVGA GTX 690 like mentioned in your signature, right?).
