Ok, the past couple of months ive had problems with getting a BSOD, i finally thought i fixed it, my friends and I played UT for hours last night and no issues. I showed my friend last night FPS using 3dmar06 in SLI, today i try to play the game and i get a BSOD when im starting the game. I ran all checks, CCleaner, regestry cleaner and performance tests, but all indicate no problems, i even ran ATItools for over five hours and it came back no issues. But i enable last night the first time after ive done all my sweeps and everything, today i get a BSOD!!! So what do i do, is this sound like a problem with sli??

I have gone back and beta the drivers for my 9800 GTs, but up until last night when i run SLI, i didnt get a BSOD for the past couple of days.

The tests and cleaners ive run:
3Dmark06
ATI tools
Ortho
Ubumto
Guru 3D
CCleaner
RR

ALso, everytime i reboot after BSOD, my screen dumps everything as if i just tunred off SLI, and i have to move my icons back to the other monitor

Well I would remove the cards and reseat them and make sure the bridge is on properly. Do a CMOS reset at that time so everything is stock speeds. Boot into safe mode. Run sweeper and manually delete the nvidia driver folder. restart windows normally and install latest driver. Stay at stock speed and run those tests to see if there is still an issue. Last resort is a fresh install of windows or RMA.

Unless you are just upset that a previosu OC on the cards is no longer stable.

Why would you use a beta driver? Those are notorious for causing issue's. Just stick with trying WHQL ones.

Uhh drivers have a lot to do with sli, in fact they're almost as important as the sli bridge itself I would say.

Run the 181.22 whql drivers. The 182.xx have had issues with sli.

CCleaner does not really clean drivers out, mainly good for registry cleaning and keep general system clean. Try Driver Cleaner.

I agree with Slightly skewed, I had 9800GTX's in SLI for a good 6 months and SLI NEVER gave me bsod's because of drivers.

You mite want to check the voltage and temps on your NB.Mine wasn't getting a bsod but it was getting alot of display freezes and I ended up rigging a fan on the NB and problem solved.

Go into the bios and check in the hardware monitor.I don't know how it's listed in eVGA bios but it should be there.You can at least check the voltage and idle temps.I have a sensor tucked down into the NB sink and have it linked to that 60mm coolmaster fan so it only spins up when the NB gets above 55c.I use pc probe in windows to keep an eye on it and it never gets above 56c with that fan.
