Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

2 Answers

SLI Problems on my M2N-E SLI

Im using 2 Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT (256mb) SLI

when both are plugged in with SLI activated, the problem accures that everything flashes and colors are Green and Purple.

Futhermore: bios settings:

SLI settings in bios = Auto
this means that this is auto detected ! (so it must be ok)

Drivers are Up-to-date
( so this cant be the problem either)

*Tested both Cards 1 for 1 both seems to work fine.
*Tested both SLI-E slots (most in top works fine second one could be faulty)

the problem accures when i put one Card in the second SLI-E 1.0 slot
and the first slot is empty so im using only one slot.


it might be an Mobo error but i cant figure it out.
I really need someone that helps me out


Great thanks! airb0rn

Hey there,

yep i know exactly what your talking about, i have the same problem at the moment using an Asus motherboard and 2 xfxEN8800GTX graphics cards. no matter what i did i got that green and purple **** with flickering screens in every game, tomorrow ill reformat my pc and let you know if it works, but what has worked so far is downloading the latest nvidia driver with phsyx and nvidia control panel and simply taking off the SLI bridge from the graphics card then enabling the sli mode in windows. got rid of the **** but it causes severe cuts in performance due to less bandwith between cards. ill post again if i solve this 100 percent.

GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card doesn't work


contact the shop / place you purchased it from and they should be able to give you info of where to send it and what to do - they should have a section on there website where you can go through the return process and you will most likely need to get an RMA number to authorise the return / replacement.

Screen not starting after installing graphics card


Hi rohit1987,

The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running.
If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.

Good luck rohit1987!
Thank you for using fixya.

SLI Video Cards


Enter you're bios & open you're manual to page 4-32. Set you're
configuration to dual video card. Use the AL software to tweak you're settings in windows. If you find this not helpful than please call Asus tech at: 1-812-282-2787, M-F 8:00AM-5:00PM EST. Unlike other companies you will not be on the phone very long. Please have the S/N of the board handy. This is located on the board, on the LTP port (White sitcker).

Good Luck!

Geforce 8600 GT Broken down?!


Have you tried the non functioning video card in another computer?

Did it work?

If not, replace it.

If yes, have you tried taking the card out and reseating it? This will be done anyway if you try it out on another computer and then put it back into yours.

Is this card one of those that require a separate power feed to it? Is this connected? Does the lead join the harness up near the Power Supply or way down near the end of the harness? (this makes a difference to the amount of power available and can cause the video card to malfunction if the voltage is too low).

Sorry I don't have an immediate answer, there are too many variables.

Good luck.
