SLI Vista 64 bit Ultimate not working.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I promise you that I did quite a few searches both in the Nvidia card thread, motherboard thread, and this one. I know I seen someone posting about having problems getting SLI to work in Vista 64 bit. I'm able to enable it in my Nvidia console, but if I run 3dMark06 it only uses one of my cards to run it not all 3. Anyone have any ideas or know where I might have seen that other person having a problem with it so I can ask them if they got theirs resolved? Thanks

Luke

Tri-SLI? Have you tried reinstalling the drivers?

I just did an install at 2am this morning and installed the drivers. I broke my loop down at 6am and I'm now running 2 cards. I was thinking it was something to do with the 3rd card so that's why I took it out.

Thank you sir +REP.

Luke,

Are you going for the highest 3Dmark score on OCN? I think you might get it, depending on your OC on that Q.

Nope not really just like building PCs. I am going to bench it though, but I'm not an extreme overclocker. I've had my Quad up to 3.6 for a bit playing around. I haven't had a chance to play around yet with this 780i chipset trying to get my 4gigs of RAM to work with Vista 64 bit.

Yea, I install all the drivers and I can go into the nvidia control panel and it says it's enabled, but when I run something like 3dmark06 it says I'm using 1/1 cards. That and it's easy to tell because two cards run slower than one of my GTS cards lol..
