SLi not working, Need help!!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have been runing 3dmark06 trying to see why my score is so low. Then I thought to see if sli was even doing anything.

My score in SLi mode was 4944, I disabled SLi and got a score of 5004. What the crap is going on? I have been messing with this with no sucess. If anyone has any input that might help me figure out what is going on I would really appreciate it.

A side note, all my other benchmark scores were good. 01 I got 33k, o3 I got 30k, and 05 I got 13k. Those are all in line with what you would expect with the 7800GTX in sli. But the score in o6 below 5k is just not right. I have see people with close to the same set up as me get 7-8k easy.

Thanks for the help guys.

Is SLI enabled in the BIOS? That is usually the problem, people simply forget to enable it after installing the 2nd card. If it's disabled in the BIOS, enabling it in Windows won't matter.

Wher in the Bios can I find the setting to trun Sli on or off. I have an a8n32(asus) Motherboard. I looked and did not see any setting for the Sli in the bios...

also, dumb thing, just make sure you have the bridge card installed on top of those two and in the nvidia control panel, make sure you set the card to run in SLI and single monitor.

What drivers are you running?
Also if sli is installed corectly it will show a popup saying your system has been configured properly to use sli, try enabling the gpu load balancing and run aquamark and see if its working..

I am running 84.20 for the drivers. I have tried it with all the drivers that are out now, these ones are beta, but when I ran 3dmark06 I was using the 81.98 drivers.

I ran aquamark and it did fine, I saw both cards working I got a score of 108k so it must be working, but for some reason I guess 3dmark06 dont like my sli.

Well i only scored a little over 6k on 3dmark06 running stock cpu and both my cards overclocked so i would think youd be scoring a bit better than me expecially with that dual core setup, run it again and post a ss of your results.

ok I got it working finally. I pulled out the cards and reseated them, made sure the power plugs were in correctly. Then flashed the bios. I am not sure what made the difference but it is working like it should now. I ran 3dmark06 and got 8190 marks.
