Hey guys I'm hoping one of my cards isn't dead
but more information here if anyone can help:
Basically windows kept crashing/freezing, at first rearly but quickly it became common. Got rid of my overclocks (hadn't increased voltage at all yet) and tried different drivers and the only one that stopped the crashes/freezes were drivers that didn't allow SLI on the 2080ti's, went back to recent drivers and crashing only stopped when I disabled SLI.
Noticed that nvlink bridge would stop lighting up when froze/crashed and still does after a little while but because not in SLI it doesn't affect the first card and the display. When nvlink stop lighting up I then look in MSI afterburner and that card returns no readings, SLI option disappears from NVidia Control panel. Also when I then check in Device manager there it an ! icon on the second card and viewing it's properties is this message:
"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
The specified request is not a valid operation for the target device"
I then try updating the drivers and it says "The best drivers for your device are already installed"
Is there anything that can be done for this? Could a bios update fix it or is it something else?
Hoping it's not a dead card as this system was not built to easily remove these cards this was supposed to stay together for a long time.
