Hello, I'm having an issue playing most full screen games while my video card is using two GPU's when I disable this feature and use only one, it works fine. any ideas on how to make my video card not be gay? and use both GPU for better performance? I also have the latest drivers and lasted versions of direct x...also tried using old drivers including beta drivers and nothing seems to work. The game flash into a black screen and then I get the blue screen of death. I have also RMA this video card and still having same results. Games that crash...Crisis, Red alert 3, star craft 2 beta. games that work with 2 gpu's diablo 2

If you've been to multiple forums I think you heard that a lot of people tell you to enable SLI in the Nvidia control panel, right? Well that option shouldn't be grayed out and make sure the motherboard setup menu supports both GPUs. You probably already know that each 295 is actually 2 Gpus stacked together so it's like running quad SLI. Are you sure both cards work by themselves?
Then I would ask if you placed them in the blue slot that give full x16 lanes. The Nvidia control panel should recognize this card as the 295 so there won't be an SLI option. I think EVGA tested it on thier systems found no problems and sent it right back to you. Does reformatting the hard drive and re-installing everything help at all?
Called nvidia today they told me to try taking out some ram which I did no help or test the video card in another pc which kinda makes no sense to me considering its doing the same thing as my last card, but I'm trying to test it in my system not another pc>.>;;
I forgot to note one odd thing, before I changed over to Windows 7, my card had no issues at all I was using windows xp, but after changing to Windows 7 I started to have these issues.
Hmmm, I would RMA it again since the card has the issue whenever it uses Windows 7. If thegame won't start but everything else works fine it's a graphics card issue. When Nvidia asked that you try it on another PC they are asking you to try it on a system other than your own but proferably close enough so that if the card doesn't work on that system the card is the likely culprit.
