Cant get sli working

Just got this great video card and it has two processors! but my new mainboard is an asus m2n-e only one pci-e x16 slot. ookk thats all i need right. both gpu's are on one card ssooooo whats the problem? tried the oem drivers...no go. so i downloaded nvidia's latest still no go. card works fine, except the system (win xp pro)won't see the second gpu. any one have any ideas. my understanding was that the two gpu's on one card would allow for sli on a regular main board. if this is not so than whats the point?

This video card only functions as SLI with the Gigabyte motherboard GA-K8NXP-SLI. If you go to this website, it will tell you more about it. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1749

Running dual bfg 8800gtx oc2

Hey, I own the same board, well the brother model, M2N-SLI and on both boards its the same, X8 when two cards are used, 16 when only one card is used, I have 8600GT two of them, previously used in sli, but now with 3 monitors I don't use sli at all, I still think both cards are working at x8 even if sli isn't enabled.

ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard No Graphics

I have the same board (M2N-SLI) with a BFG 9800 GTX with no video either. I have the card in the black slot and I have 2 mem sticks in the yellow. Shouldn't make a difference if I'm using a monitor not an LCD right? Everything spins up for me too, hard drive, vid card has power, CPU fan is on, post (green) light is on.

Graphics card no display, not recognised

Hi DarkPredUK.
You need to check you're bios. (See below).
The PCI-E card (Single video card) must be placed into slot, PCIEX16_1 as shown on page 2-3 & 2-18 in you're user manual. The bios must be set correctly as seen on page 4-26 to PCI-E first. You must have two PCI-E cards installed to run SLI mode. (They must be exactly the same graphic cards).
Asus M2N-E SLI main web site/drivers, manual ect.

Good luck DarkPredUK.

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up

It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?

So..

Hi tmomonet, did you install you're PCI-E video card in the correct slot? Open you're manual to page 2-18. Once you have gone over that part of you're manual you will need to enter the bios to check some settings so you're video card boots with the system. (Please make sure you're PCI-E video card is installed fully into the PCI-E blue slot). (Some PCI-E cards also need extra power, if youre's does it will have a power connector on the rear of the card).
Once into the bios, open you're manual to page 4-20. Open PCIPnP. Than go to page 4-26. At the bottom of the page you will see, Primary Display Adapter. Change to PCI-E & not to PCI.
Save & exit the bios. You should gain video display. Once windows finishes loading, install your video card software.


Good Luck!

Second display not working

hi check for the BIOS settings for having both the cards work ..if not then try interchanging the card & slots with each other to check if one of it is faulty?
