    Seems I've been useing only one card then. I had no problems. Simply enabled the sli. I got Asus msn-sli.



    Id suggest seting bios to auto if possible.

    update your drivers or try difrent drivers

    Check asus website for a bios update.



    Try the cards in difrent pci slots, switch them around?



    I hope this helps.

How and where do you install nvidia video bridge cable asus 14010-00131200.


Hi
The video bridge cable you are referring to is I believe "Flexible NVIDIA Video SLI Bridge Connector Cable".
This is to link two graphics cards together for enhanced graphic capability, especially gaming. You would need two SLI compatible graphics cards, they should be identical, in the relevant PCIe slots on the motherboard and this cable then links them together.
If you are only using one graphics card or the onboard graphics then this linking cable is redundant.The Youtube video here:
Nvidia How To SLI Tutorial
is pretty good at showing what you need to do and where this cable goes when appropriate.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

SLI


Make sure you have installed the latest Nvidia drivers. Get them from Nvidia's web site, not the included disk. Make sure "Enable SLI" is selected in Nvidia control panel. Re-seat both cards and the SLI bridge. BTW what Mobo do you have?

Asus a8n sli premium


From the Asus support site.

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory.

Hate to dash your hopes, the chipset (northBridge) is Nvidia and the PCI express slots are also controlled by the Nvidia chips, the 2 pci-express are nvidia-sli supported.

Computer does not boot up


Remove the second card. There is a few other things that must be done before you can select SLI & run.
Go to page 4-26 of your manual. You must set primary display adapter to PCI-E within the bios
Page 4.24 section: 4.4.4 set to AUTO. Section 4.4.5 set to High Preformance. Make sure your connecting your PCIE card in the 2 blue x16 slots & not the white x8 PCIE slot, found on page 2-20.
Happy computing & please vote.

CANNOT SET UP SLI MODE


So it sounds like you are able to enable SLI mode, but once you do, you have no video output (upon reboot). The most likely problem is that it's now in SLI mode, but your monitor cable is hooked up to the wrong video card; try changing it to the other video card, and see if you have output from that one.
