SLI question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 2 7800 gt cards installed but will I install the nvidia drivers 81.98
the enable sli window doesnt pop up on windows. How do I enable sli if this message doesnt pop up? The enable button doesnt show up either for me to check the box. Is there another way to enable it? I even tried taking out both cards and reinstalling but no luck even after multiple removing and reinstalling the drivers. please help

yes and it jus started this after I restored my computer to an earlier date. Nothing else was changed and it worked fine before that on same system in my profile. Jus doesnt seem to be recognizing the second card now for some reason.

Get driver cleaner pro. Boot to safe mode. Remove the drivers. Remove the devices from device manager. Reboot to XP. Reinstall the drivers. See if that does the trick for you.
