  1. Update your drivers and see if it helps.
    Also try enabling V-sync,I had this flickering problems in many games and enabling
    V-sync removed it
  2. Drivers are updated, how do I, enable, V- sync??
  3. In the game's graphic option,you should have an option to enable V-sync
  4. V-sync was enabled, an it is getting worse, maybe the Card is bad ??
  5. You could always try changing the SLi rendering mode to see if that helps.
  6. How do I do that???
  7. Nv control panel > Manage 3D settings > SLi rendering mode. There are four settings Nv recommended, single GPU, force alternate 1 and force alternate 2. One of the alternates is SFR (Split Frame Rendering) and the other is AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering).
  8. I tried that, still the same flicker, when I play Fallout New Vegas
  9. I reversed the Sli Bridge, I think I installed it the wrong way

    An SLi bridge does not have a right or wrong way round so if reversing it 'seems' to have cured the problem then the bridge itself is faulty.
  11. I don't have a another Sli bridge, just a Cross Fire bridge for Ati Cards, I don't think ,I use that one , just have to get another Nvidia Sli bridge, Thanks for the help
  12. Does it happen with other games?
  13. Sli bridge is working, Review the information in the right-hand pane. The phrase "SLI enabled" will appear if your SLI bridge is in fact working properly. If your SLI bridge is faulty, SLI will be unable to initialize and there'll be no SLI information within the right-most pane. This is because the secondary video card will not be properly identified by the NVIDIA control panel in the event of an SLI bridge failure
