Get the latest one. And make sure you attached everything properly including the CF bridge.

You only need a single bridge. Also, what cards are you using?

Also, go check in the hardware manager and check the status of the cards. Vista disable the first card sometime to install the second one. Enable it if it's the case and you should be ready to go.

There's should be a Crossfire™ option at the left navigation side (I think below the Overdrive option).

well just to make sure, what is in your computer (specs)

i hope for you it isn't the motherboard in your profile (sli board not crossfire board)

Indeed thats what i was thinking aswell,
August 12, 2009 3:37:23 PM

oh my i never thought about that grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. that is the mother board i am using.
now what do i do can i sli 2 ati cards or dos it have to be nvidea?

^ it has to be nvidia as ATi is CF.
August 12, 2009 3:52:41 PM

Nope you cant, SLI is with nvidia cards, and crossfire for ati

well you have a few options,

Sell that mobo and get a crossfire capable mobo (imo the best thing to do, if you want to keep your 2 cards)

sell both your 4850, and replace em for 2 gts250 or some sort

Or replace the two for one single gpu solution like the 4850x2 (this is probably the cheapest route, but it means sellling your current two so not the easyst)

I'm gonna summon all the plagues in the world and cast it upon you.

Using a SLI mobo for CF. That's a grave sin dude. :heink:
