there is nothing in bios to run sli, it is done through a hardware connection (sli bridge) and drivers

do both cards work, try them both individually to make sure.

when you uninstalled the drives did you use any sort of driver cleaner application after using nvidia's driver uninstaller

i use http://www.drivercleaner.net/ but you have to buy that, i know there are free ones but i don't know what they are, and maybe someone could say what they are

so i should, start off by booting it up with one of the drivers installed

then i should shut down, put the second card in and put the sli bridge on and then boot the computer back up?

I would uninstall one card unistall all drivers thru nvidia then use d/c (instructions included with the program) reboot (with only one card still in) then install new drivers and then when your working reboot with the other in (swap them not sli) and then if that works then try sli

If that even makes sense? :S

unistall with nvidia

restart in safe mode with one card in

run d/c

restart to windows with one card and re-install drivers

restart and test the one card

when working shut down swap the cards

restart and test the other

then shut down and install both in sli

reboot and enable sli and hopefully it should work

:]
