Windows 7: Problem with 7 Ult X64 Recognizing 2nd Video Card

10 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Hi...update your Bios...also I had a 780i motherboard for a while (EVGA), SLI capable..It, like yours (if memory serves me correctly) uses a Nvidia chipset, which were notorious for running very hot.
I'd check to make sure its not a cooling issue if everything is connected/powered properly.

Actually I'd just get rid of the motherboard and replace it with w/e board does'nt use that chipset but thats your call.

BTW Windows Seven has no issues with SLI at all..I'm running 2x GTX 460's in SLI and have no problems with Windows seeing both cards. SO it is NOT the OS..cheers
