bad card?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am using the SLI driver hack on my board with 2 GTX 460 SE's. I just reinstalled windows and i got sli enabled, but now quite often all of a sudden my fans go at like 200% speed and windows KINDA freezes. The mouse will start to lag really bad and i can't do anything but its not completely frozen, so i have force shutdown. And when i reboot only 1 card shows in device manager, but if i reboot again they are both there. I think its a software issue.. So i am going to reinstall windows 7 again from a different disc and see what happens.

I'd upgrade the OS for sure. The cards hopefully run fine, and I hope you like them

Drivers may be involved, what are you using? I had a similar problem when I ran 270.51 beta drivers.

I don't think its the nvidia driver because i have used that for a long time on before i reinstalled windows 7. I started getting all kinds of stuff going wrong afterwards. So even though windows 7 installed successfully i think it still was messed up some how. I installed a x86 windows 7 now from a other disc and it works fine with nvidia's newest drivers. I reinstalled in the first place because i was getting crashes in GTA IV like crazy, it didn't crash anymore but then the graphics issue happened. Will the x86 RAM limit hurt my performance much?

With 4 gigs? Not really.

I thought i fixed this but its happening again! Now i crash constantly just starting up. And if i manage to get into windows it always will crash soon. Sometimes i can go 1 hour without a crash. I doubt its my OS now. I don't think it would be my video card driver. I ran a Ram check and thats fine. Im sure its not my HDD. So could 1 of my video cards be causing this? Could i find out what exactly caused the crash in a log some where like event viewer?

Try booting with just 1 card. By that I mean physically take 1 of the cards out. If it has no problems try the other card. This way you can eliminate the cards as being the problem. If you can boot just fine with both cards one card at a time then it's a software issue.

I tried having both cards in but having my monitor plugged into the other card. It still did it. Now i have only 1 card in the other is plugged into the motherboard still but no pci-e power in it and the problem has not occured yet so i guess one is having issues. I will have to RMA it .
