I have 2 MSI Cyclone 460s on an Asus P8Z68 pro with a Corsair HX70W PSU. When I attempt to switch to SLI in the Nvida control panel the control panel freezes and display driver stops working. In the device manager it says that both cards have been stopped because they have reported problems (Code 43). That’s with the 275.33 drivers. For any drivers before that no SLI option is show at all. Both the cards work fine independently and in either slot. Does anyone have any idea what to do? I'm new to SLI and I must admit I'm quite stumped.
No dice. It made no difference with the old drivers. With the new ones, after having to install them for a 3rd time to get nvidia control panel to work, all SLI options, apart from disable, are greyed out.
So, just to make shore, there's no BIOS setting I need to change or anything like that?
No, I've never had to change any BIOS setting on any of the SLi rigs that I've built or owned and my P8P67 Pro had no problems at all in running SLi'd cards, it was only W7 that needed updating before the drivers would load properly.
