You're incorrect. I do understand. I'm sure your audience needs your opinion, I however do not.

Have you tried taking the card that works out and just leave the card that doesn't work properly in your system? Do you still have the cold boot issue with just one card?

@kbrady1979, never an issue with the GT 440 card. I'm going to remove and reseat the second card tonight and see if it just a contact issue.

Thanks for your kind input. I'll consider this solved.

I know you've never had a problem with both cards in there, but computers are weird at the best of times, and sometimes something that has worked fine for ages, won't work anymore. Trying to boot your computer up with just the questionable card in it is a simple step that will rule out any type of conflict.

As I previously stated in the thread, one card was recommended, not his 2 different ones.

I like how k saying it in different words is kind, and OP trolls me instead, nice.

I was only suggesting him try booting with just the card he suspects is bad, not that he should dump both cards and buy a new one. I agree, it's not optimal running two different cards like that, but if it works for him, that's fine. I just wanted to know if he still had the cold boot issue with the suspect card in by itself.

Sorry k, I knew what you were after, I kind of assumed the arrogant OP had already done it. (my bad, threw me off with his talk of solder joints)

I gave him too much credit, the basics.... Always reseat your video cards if weirdness begins!

Try the 2 cards separately first to make sure they are both working fine if you insist on doing this.

....and monitor temps afterwards....

And know, you are risking busting your motherboard.

Sirs;

Please understand that I am not a newbie. I've been into computing since the Commodor and BBS's.

I have reseated and restarted with each card individually to no avail. What I didn't expect was an highly opinionated individual who is trying to rebuild or upgrade my computer. I asked for a simple opinion, nothing more.

Faladu, it's your arrogance that has escalated my ire. Your insinuation that I am ignorant is insulting and petty. You can't take no for an answer. I can see from your computer specs that you live and die by your machine. I do not. For me, my computer is a tool, nothing more. If my tool fails, I'll get another.

Insofar as the multiple video card issue, it may not be ideal, but it is what I have and am keeping. Most other architects (like myself) that I know, are not compugeeks, and most use 2 or 3 video cards without issue. I'm not going to argue good or bad, as it works and is cheap.

I do not want to escalate a pissing contest with you or anyone else, but understand, that 75% or more multiple monitor users in the world (Google it) are using multiple video cards and the world has not come to an end. I have tried hard to be polite. Do you really want to make this personal. I.E. your troll comment?

So here is the deal. I'll reseat the card again tomorrow, and if it fails again, I'll replace it with another $50 card. That it, we are done. I'm sorry I posted.

Brink, if you want to toss me, I understand.
