Question about ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe/Wireless Edition ATX Motherboard (1254095)
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)
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.
