Video cards pci-e

I was trying to connect a 2 pci-e videocards (pny 8800 gts and nvidia 7300) with the 7300 in the primary slot so that things run cooler but when i can never get them to both run together, it is one or the other. then when i finally get them both on i get the blue screen of death. i can still boot into safe mode and it will tell me that they are both working (only one is working when it tells me this) am i needing to change something in the bios
(i'm running windows)

    i have a 600W power supply attached, and i did what you said and everything worked great... then after the computer was on about 10 min... the 8800 gts would quit... so i wondered if it was a heat problem or something else... the heat reads out at 175 F when it quits... is this the problem and if so... what do you use to cool a video card? i have one of the case fans pointed in right at the card slots and the other 4 fans pulling air out

  • s_beukelman7 Apr 16, 2008

    thanks that worked great... right after that i started getting a nv4_disp loop error, which apparently is pretty common with older nvidia video cards... anyway this one was a bugger to fix but i found one

    for anyone who has that problem

Hi s _beukelman7, one of the most important spec's of running two SLI cards is they must be identical. Your trying to run a 8800 & a 7300. They are both NVIDIA **** they are not the same. They are different & will fail in your system. Pg. 6-2 in your mnual. Either buy another 8800 or another 7300 SLI card.
It is suggested you go to NVIDIA web site & allow NVIDIA to check both your two graphic cards & system for the latest drivers. If NVIDIA finds you need updated chipset drivers please (follow all instructions) or your will find yourself re-installing your OS.

The two most important item you need other than checking the above link, is the correct power supply. Your manual suggest a minimal of 500w psu when using a single SLI card. I suggest running a 550w for dual cards.
The second item concerns the SLI cable. It must be clean.

Good luck!

Try to re-seat all of your connections. Un-plug the RAM, video cards, and PCI cards, then re-seat them back in their slots. It could have just been a loose stick of RAM had come partially out over the years of vibrations which would cause an issue like this.
However no fans gives me the idea that there may be something wrong with your power supply, or motherboard. Check to make sure that none of the capacitors on the board are puffing out, and if you have a spare power supply try hooking up only the necessary connections after checking the previous suggestions.
The problem with issues such as this are that so many different things could cause something such as this, so hopefully this helps!

I m using nvidia ge force 8600. my board is intel DG965RY. will d board support 9800 series of nvidia

PCI-E 2.0 expands the bandwidth to allow the PCI-E bus to handle twice the data as earlier motherboards formatted for the PCI-E video bus. If your going to spend the money on video cards, make sure the motherboard supports PCI-E 2.0. Otherwise you will not be running the video cards to their fullest potential and your wasting money. While there are a few things you can skimp on when building a computer, the motherboard is not it. Yes, to get the support you need you will have to spend a little extra on the motherboard. But in the end, you will be glad you did. If you already have the motherboard, don't even waste your time getting a PCI-E slotted card with 2.0 support. Sure, it will work, but again a waste of resources. The link provided below is an example of a standard PCI card that will perform nicely with earlier motherboards and it will best any 9600 series cards on the market. The 9600 series is just a mid-range video card. Any 8800 series card will provide better overall performance.

Gigabyte Nvidia 7300 GeForce PCI Express

I would look at two things first would be the video card, if it's overheating because of fan failure, that can cause crazy things like this. I would see if you can tell if the fan is working while the system is running. I would also remove the video card and clean it well with some canned air. I would also consider your power supply, make sure you have enough watts for that video card, I would clean it carefully with the air as well. My system started shutting down like that the other week, I checked my temps on my 8800 it was idling at 90 c, turns out my fan had crawled to a slow. I have now sent the card in for RMA as it's only 5 months old.

I hope this helps,

THanks for using FIxYa,

PCI Express slot, eight beeps

Yeah, but it's not the slot; it's the northbridge chipset or a PCI bridge driving it that's perhaps overheated or set funny.  If you use 2 CPUs they can fall out of step several ways, or your clock circuits can age badly by themselves!  Got fresh CMOS batteries in there?  It could be that PCIe was merely asked to run at a frequency it won't run.  You should carefully make sure the board is nice and clean, reflash or at least clear settings on the BIOS, confirm the PCI videocard boots, make sure all the chips are cooled well, and again see if you can get a PCIe card to work without complaint.

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.
