    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

Can i add 2 graphics card in asus P5G41C-M LX ? now i have nvidia GTS 450 graphics card.. plz help.....


Hello there,
*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific board.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.

I want to use two Graphics card in single motherboard


Not on this motherboard, and not with two different video cards. Your motherboard does have two PCI-E slots at x1 speed, but only one slot at x16 speed. And when you use SLI you should use two identical video cards for best results.

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?

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.
