Windows 7: Windows 7 SLI for 8800 GT Drivers

28 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 64-bit

I spent all night trying to get this to work; couldn't find a BIOS update for one of my cards (EVGA 8800GT), but I did eventually get it work. Here is the fix that I found elsewhere (can't remember where and can't find it in history, sorry): Roll back your onboard Realtek LAN port drivers.

No idea why this worked for me, but nothing else would. I tried reinstalling the Nvidia drivers several times, reboots, swapping PCIE slots, and nothing worked. Every time when I enabled SLI, it would drop down to 800x600 resolution and Nvidia control panel would disappear. When I would go look at the Device Manager one or both cards had exclamation points. Finally I found a post on a forum that said rolling back the Realtek NIC drivers worked for him, so I tried it and now I'm playing in SLI. I rebooted and it stayed in SLI - no BSOD's or crashes. I can play Crysis on Very High now; same thing with World in Conflict.

Good luck to everyone, hope this helps.
