[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 56

post #551 of 1230
so after hours of failure I removed the 5850, uninstalled all drivers, ran a registry cleaner.

I did the same for the 8800gt to get a fresh start. Today I have JUST the 8800gt installed with the latest legit drivers and STILL GPUZ shows PhysX as not checked. I have it selected in the Nvidia control panel, but sure enough fluidmark is using the cpu for physics.

Is this card just junk!? I am soooo frustrated!!!!!

Attached are the system info and gpuz screens

hmm... just a thought, go into your Add/remove programs section and look for Nvidia drivers, as if you were going to uninstall them.

is there an entry called 'Nvidia PhysX'?

maybe somehow, the display drivers are installing but not the PhysX drivers? coz im pretty sure the 8800GT does PhysX ay.

Need some help with my 5850 setup too...

Heres the issue, I had everything setup and working correctly when I first setup everything. I had carted my system to my parents house and done the setup on an old CRT running off the 5850 through a DVI adapter to the CRT's Dsub connector (old blue vga connector). Everything appeared to work correctly running the 5850+gts250.

Now, having brought my pc back to my apartment, I've hooked it up to my 24'' asus monitor with a dvi cable straight to the 5850 (only difference between the setup at home and at the apartment). Now on every reboot Windows can't recognize the Ati drivers (games won't run, videos won't play, and windows areo effects disappear).

Only way to fix this is to reinstall my ATI drivers over the old ones, but once the system shuts down and restarts windows isn't recognizing the driver again. Any thoughts? Could this be because of the monitor?

Can someone test if having a both ATI and Nvidia cards/drivers installed cause performance degradation? For example try both a PC game and benchmark (non gpu/cpu physx game) with just ATI card/ATI driver and again with the the inclusion of nvidia card/driver to see if the performance is the same, better or worse. Apparently, one person is having such an issue (look at his screen shots for Dragon Age: Origin) and it needs to be investigated more.

Guys, you should be using GenLs 1.04FF mod with the newer drivers incase you are not doing that.

I would make another video on setting up Hybrid PhysX but Nvidia and GenL keep updating their drivers/hack that I'll have to keep making new videos.

Anyways, I've uploaded the mod incase any of you need it.

EDIT: I've already benchmarked games a while back. Hybrid PhysX configs have no impact on games performance.

When I run fluidmark im getting like 40 fps but in some videos and pictures ive seen their fps is over 100. Im using a 5970 and a GTS 240. Is this normal? I think I installed everything right.

Hey guys.

I have a 5870 and i just now remembered i have a 8800gt left over!!!

This thread is huge, could someone do me a solid PLEASE and link me real quick to a guide or maybe a certain post in this monster thread to setting this all up.

I downgraded my Catalyst to 10.5 and is flashed to a ASUS 5870 if that makes any issue with setting this up.

EDIT: nvm this looks good http://www.overclock.net/graphics-ca...ysx-guide.html ... sry !

EDIT: nevermind, confused yet again, is a SVGA cable NEEDED in order to do this? that guide also sounds like its coming from a dual monitor setup, is that right? cause im in luck if it is

COMEDOR, I've just set this up again using my new 5850 and an old 9800GT I had. (used to have it with a 4870 & 9600GT setup...)

It's simple, but it seemed to take a bit of trial and error to get the Physx to be detected in Fluidmark

Basically, I would do the following

1) Physically install both GPUs. Connect 5850 to monitor. Forget about the 8800gt, it doesn't need to be connected.
2) Driver sweeper ALL drivers off. Completely. Tick ATI, nVid, and nVid Physx. Reboot. The usual for installing new drivers
3) Install Cat 10.6 (or the newest, which might be 10.7 by the time you read this ). Reboot.
4) Install 257.21. Do NOT Reboot. Install GenL's 1.04ff mod. Double check that the files have been patched (i.e check in the window that it says "Files patched"). [If it says some files haven't been patched, then your system is still using them, and the 8800gt wasn't fully un-installed - see 7)]
5) Reboot
6) Run Fluidmark, make sure CPU Physx is NOT checked, and make sure that "Physx GPU" is shown on the sim screen. You will also notice that it looks rather smooth too, hopefully
7) If Fluidmark doesn't want to play ball, then uninstall the 8800gt, delete drivers, and Driver Sweep all NVIDIA drivers off again. Reboot, and repeat from step 4) until Fluidmark finally accepts that you're running hybrid-Physx
8) Enjoy Batman:AA in all it's shiny glory

I'm waiting on my 9800GT to get here, but when it does I'll go by this seems simple enough..

Trying to install this and I'm having no luck at all..

Did all the steps but I keep getting this error


^^That's trying to install 181.71 beta drivers and before that I tried using 257.21 drivers with the same error.

I deleted my ATI drivers/Nvidia stuff off in safe mode using Driver Sweeper but thought I would check that again after getting this error..and the Nvidia stuff won't delete off.

In Add/Remove Nvidia is gone though?

The GPU seems to be working..the fan is turning (9800GT)

This is using my sig rig, I looked at the motherboard manual and it doesn't say anything that I would have to do to get 2 gpus running..I'm completely lost and getting pissed off.
