Re: Problems during boot
This is windows unable to get to passed the lower bios memory before windows takes over with the normal memory.
Check your cmos battery is'nt low, or reset the bios JBAT1 terminal from pins 1-2 to 2-3 then back again as the loop could be corrupt bios or a peice of hardware that cannot be started.

Unfortunately, there isn't an easy solution for the Nuvi owner as it requires a custom piece of firmware to flash the unit to make it at least boot. This problem is often caused during a failed firmware and/or map update.
It sounds like a file was corrupted. Sometimes it is better to connect the unit
up to a PC, delete the old map and then proceed to install the new one. There
are so many issues with memory space causing failed downloads and corrupted
If the map file is missing, the unit will boot-up OK, it will just
say "Map data unavailable" but if the map file or associated map files are
corrupted, it can cause the unit to crash. Your PC won't recognize the Nuvi
because you have the reach the main screen before the data communication mode
routines are accessed.
We've had some success in restoring some of these
units by flashing a "fix" firmware in "pre-boot mode" that doesn't try to load
the map or map associated files. This should then allow the unit to boot. Once
the unit boots, Windows will recognize it and then you can copy a map over to it
from the PC. Reboot the unit and then flash it with the standard
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart or During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer hope this helps
I suggest you should repair your OS. Just insert your winxp cd installer and boot from cd. there is Rapir option at windows installer option. just repair it and you will get your windows work again in approx. 30 minutes :D
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.
