Video freezes and locks up comp...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I installed my second 7800gt today and enabled SLI. Everything seems to run fine for a little while then video freezes and the comp basically locks up for awhile then everything that happened sound wise is heard since lockup and the monitor goes black. I have now disabled SLI and it seems to be working ok. Both cards work by themselves but don't want to work together. They are both the same model 256-P2-N517-AX but one thing I noticed is that the layout on the board itself is completely different, the caps etc are located in different places etc. Any clue what would cause the lock ups with this?

Have you updated to the latest drivers supporting 7800 series SLI?
