Windows 7: dual card trouble... 8800gt & 5200fx

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
 
 

Hi there ! Would that work for 9600 GSO and a 7300 SE/7200 GS (that's the way device manager reports it, anyway it's 7 series), both on PCI-Express ? Having almost the same issues, only Win7 doesn't stop the secondary card, but it bluescreens at windows logon.

Detailed description of my problem HERE

If the previous file doesn't work, could you do an .inf for me too ? I would highly appreciate such a gesture !

Thanks in advance.

Sorry. Creating an .inf in your case would be of no value because both the 9600 GSO and 7300 SE / 7200 GS are already included by NVidia in the same driver package.

You could try the WU one but I don't think that driver can co-exist with 8800 driver. Nothing to lose by trying though.

giving your method a shot now. since using windows update for the 5200fx drivers messed up the 8800, i will try the new .inf you provided on that card first.

okay
tried your modded .inf on the 8800 first

installed
then caused BSOD (driver IRQL not less than or equal)

booted up again with the 5200 shut down by windows and the 8800 running again

now i will try the modified .inf on the 5200

Yeah, that's what I thought but we had to try.

That's it's way of telling you, "I didn't like the driver you were trying to make me use so I am not going to use it." Probably out of protecting Windows and/or hardware. Can't say for sure because I'm not that educated about how it operates.

alrighty
so i can either wait for someone solve the issue or get a pci compatible gpu to replace the 5200fx

there is an 8 series @ staples for like 80 bucks
would almost rather not have them working then have to fork over the dough!
