Welcome to seven forums. Please fillin you system specs, this will help other s help you now and in the future. From what I can see you have 3 system devices without drivers as well as your monitor. Try making sure your chipset drivers are up to date and your bios. Aslo if your monitor has a driver get that installed. Aslo make sure the card is properly seated and has power supplied to it. Then lets seee where were at. Thanks Fabe

Installed newest stuff from Asus website still no vid card. Same as pic above. The PCI-to-PCI bridge are still yellow !'s. The drivers on Asus's webpage are only for vista 64bit as well. Shouldnt those work?

I have DLed those drivers for the vid card and they start to install but fail when the driver installer fails to find a vid card capatable.

Any other ideas?

EDIT: I updated my system specs as well

Right click on the one with exclamation point and choose update driver software. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse. Now find and double click on the correct .inf for it from the driver package and hit ok.

I don't know which .inf it is because I've never used the driver at all before, so you'll have to figure that part out.

I tired this and every time it fails.

I even tried to reinstall since I saw another person on the forums stating they had no issues with their 7950 but still no luck.

Try updating your BIOS. Some ASUS boards need a BIOS update before SLI setups works on Vista/7.

Those exclamation points in the device manager have to be fixed first.

No sense trying anything with a video driver at all until they are.

Everlong has a great suggestion above about the bios update too.

Do you know the southbridge chipset of the motherboard? Perhaps you may use drivers meant for another system from another manufacturer (with same southbridge chipset), if Asus doesn't provide directly themselves. In this case, install by pointing to the exact inf using the device manager.

Windows Update attempt can't hurt.

I have updated the chipset but still no luck. The screenshot above is after I updated the chipset from the Asus webpage.
