Vista ultimate - Second card doesn't have enough resources???

Before i used windows Vista a was running xp, Sli Worked, however my dual core wasn't (it was 32bit xp) so i had to upgrade. Now i'm on vista my second card is showing as not having enough resources. Device manager tells me i need to remove or disable another divice in order to use the second card. i have removed my sound cards, added RAM, disconnected un-necessary drives and still the same issue. The thing that concerns me is that it may be the power supply. Also my drivers are all up-to-date on all my hardware.

The Spec of my computer is listed below:
Motherboard: Asus M2N-E SLI
Precessor: AMD Dual CORE 5000+
Graphics Cards: identical pair of Geforce 7600 GS 256Mb SLI enabled and bridged
Ram: 2 x 1GB of Samsung DDR2 6400
Power Supply: 600W ATX2
O/S: Vista 64bit ultimate edition.

Have a NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX mothrboard.Does it support gddr5 graphics card

Yes, vipinpabraha.

In fact if they come out with GDDR10, it will support that also.

Because a graphics card's graphics memory, runs independent of the system resources.

Would not matter if your motherboard used DDR Sdram, and the graphics card uses GDDR5.

(Yes, I know. The Nvidia NForce 780i SLI mobo uses DDR2 Sdram at 800MegaHertz. Or also stated as PC2-6400. Always wanted one of those motherboards)

Integrated graphics, or also known as OnBoard graphics, borrows from the System Resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
(OnBoard - ON the motherBOARD )

This slows the computer down when using an intensive graphics program, such as an intensive game, for example

A graphics card has it's own Processor (G.P.U.), and graphics ram memory. It doesn't need to borrow from the system resources.

Having problem getting sound on recently installed ASUS A8N32 SLI. I've installed and udated Windows XP to SP3, as well as updated every driver I can. All sound devices report that their drivers are the...

It still may be that Windows doesn't use the drivers from the updates.I have a similar setup for sound and had to go to Altec to get the drivers needed for my Vista Ultimate,which you would think could "find" the driver neccessary....BUT NO.Also,,this might be dumb,but are you plugged into the right "hole" on the sound card,presuming you have a new card.I made the same mistake when I put in a SoundBlaster system and plugged in the wrong one.D'ooooh

After installing 2 EVGA geForcw 7600GT graphic cards and srtting bios for dual card, only one card recognized. I believe it's a bios problem but am having toubles getting upate.

I suspect you are using Windows Vista. Apparently, even though the motherboard was marketted as "Vista-ready", it wasn't quite ready. Numerous people have reported no problems with a single video card, but an inability to get two to work.

I could not find any reports to confirm what I suspect to be a solution. However, here it is: A BIOS update (shudder) may be inevitable. Don't panic! First, give driver updates a try. You might get lucky. You never know. The driver's are available direct from the manufacturer at this link: SLI

I further suspect the problem has something to do with the fact that a single card going into either PCI-E 16x slot runs at 16x (duh!), but that two of the same only run at 8x (huh?). This fact could have been easily overlooked with adjusting timing in the drivers specific to vista and is exactly why I suspect a driver update may be a possible fix.

I have a problem with my ram

That motherboard does not have a video circuit built-in, so the video sharing the system RAM does not make sense.

Have you checked the valid system memory configurations in your MSI manual pg 2-7 ?
Any chance that the bios is set for dual channel and you don't have equal chip sizes in the dual slots? Example : In dual-channel mode, equal size chips would go in slots 1 & 3 and in 2 & 4

Defective RAM is a possibility also.

Note1: Per MSI, all ram may not register correctly in windows unless 4 of the 2GB chips are used

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!
