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.

    I have the same problem I have the same board running windows vista (64 bit) with two identical nvidia videocards enabled and bridged and in my device manager it shows that there are not enough resources for one of the videocards. I tried to install a number of drivers, didn't work. Installing the cards and drivers seperately, didn't work. I honestly think the board is faulty please give me and Fletch88 advice on how to work this out. Thanks

Cpu is underpowered and affecting performance

If you're speaking of the Windows Experience Index, ignore it as it isn't a good indicator of performance or quality. I've got a 2 Gb 1256 GHz video card in an SLI configuration I can run full resolution at 120 fps. According to the Windows Experience Index my video card is 7.1 gaming rating but under Astro it only ranks 4.3 and thus regardless of how fast my 8 core machine is (4.8 Ghz) with 32 Gb 1600 RAM, my index rating ultimately is based on the lowest number.

Need to install second video card

You can install a video card with a dual out feature, than you can run two monitors off the same PC if the video card, processor, and motherboard are "fast" enough to do this. Running 2 video cards can only be done on a motherboard that is SLI capable. ie. 2 PCI-e slots, and an SLI bridge.

My games became in low speed but it has work good in win xp why

The reason your games run so much better on Windows XP vs. Windows Vista is because Windows Vista takes up more of your system your game has less resources to use , which makes it run slower.

To get your games running faster on Windows Vista your best bet would be to upgrade your RAM (Computer Memory). You can find out what type of RAM you need and purchase it here:

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!
