Updating Video Drivers with SLI enabled question.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
If I uninstall a video driver for one card and re-install the new one does it take for both cards? Like will there be any registry files left over to corrupt the new install?

Uninstalling one should take care of both. Run something like nasty file remover (NFR) or similar to take care of anything else that lingures if updating fails to work.

While updating with SLI enabled it says something is disabled and my screen goes black live I've lost video and I have to manually reset my computer. Guess I'm gonna turn it off and try again.

you have to uninstall your nvidia display drivers before you install new ones, try this:

1 - download DriverCleanerPro from www.guru3d.com (or I'm sure it's in the downloads section of this forum)

2 - read the instructions

3 - go to add/remove programs and uninstall you nvidia display drivers

4 - reboot into safe mode (start pressing F8 while your PC is booting up)

5 - when in safe mode run driver cleaner

6 - reboot

7 - install new drivers

8 - reboot
