    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    From the way you talk about the code I'd almost suspect you might fully know how to bypass the SLI routines W1zzard but haven't done so for legal or motivational reasons :P. I really wouldn't doubt it since you are the one who has done so much digging in the driver code to develop GPU-Z and...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Hey everybody. Sorry for the disappearance. I'm still looking at these when I have time but not with the same intensity I was before. I had identified a few routines in the code that I thought would allow SLI on non-nVidia chipsets but nVidia has tons of extra routines and checks and its...

    Thanks Holi. Its actually not really necessary at this point as I have a few other volunteers lined up so don't worry about it!

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    OK. Well, the x64 drivers up that Sol posted will probably only give you the same thing that Sinister_Steve found in the x32 drivers: It might show the Stereo - Multi-GPU rendering option in the Control Panel. But SLI itself doesn't work. Unless you were saying you have a SLI board and were...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    @Holi: If usign Vista x64 you have to disable Driver Enfrocement to install unsigned drivers as JrRacinFan said. You can do this via command line using bcdedit or using EasyBCD. However, I haven't modded x64 drivers unfortunately yet as each set takes really long and I'm still figuring out what...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Good idea, but it won't work unfortunately. The code is in the drivers and checks for SLI capable motherboard on every bootup. So monitoring what it does in the install procedure won't help unfortunately. There used to be a registry setting that could be enabled (MB_Enable) to force enable SLI...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Thanks scorpion. It might be easiest to let me remote control your PC as it takes some trickery. I sent you a PM. And also sinister, I really do too. I really don't understand what everyone else is talking about though and hope someone can enlighten me, as I haven't encountered any...

    Need Help from Users with Working SLI on nV Boards!

    Hello everyone, I need some volunteers to get some data from users who have SLI working already on their nV SLI boards. This data would be invaluable to getting the CrossFire drivers working. The data scraping itself will take no longer than 10-15 minutes. Ideally, I'd like to remote into...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I'd like to collect some quick data from some systems that are running SLI on nV boards. Ideally, I'd like to remote into a PC and then do some quick data scraping. Anyone reading this thread want to volunteer? :)

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Hey Steve, Not yet but me or Sol will let you know. I have a few ideas and I'll let you try em when we get a new set of drivers out.

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I don't have any ideas at the moment. I haven't tried making any more changes to my drivers yet or Sol's yet either. Also I don't think this is an SLI modded BIOS. If I search for Fzeven and SLIC on Google I see that this Fzeven modder added an SLIC table to this BIOS (hence the SLIC added to...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Sol, isnt the NGO patch only for older drivers anyway I thought? Sorry I disappeared for a bit. I'm really wanting to buy a XF board to develop these. Hard w/o one LOL. Problem is I don't want to spend too much and I did want to get an X38 but I'm not sure I want to invest that much with...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I'll be unavailable for the next few hours. Going out. @BYU - Sorry I can't stick around. It might take a few more tweaks to get it going I think .. but let me know what you find! Thanks again! @Ozzman - Good to know. Thanks!

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Yes. Unfortunately. As Solaris pointed out in his thread they show "SLI available" but they don't quite work yet.

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    No I didn't get on your computer. I think I need your email don't I? I haven't really used this ShowMyPC service before. I do want to check it out but might not be able to til later tonight or tomorrow. If you need the video working again you might just install the previous drivers you were...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Try updating the "VGA Compatible" driver in Device Manager to the new drivers by extracting the new ones and then clicking "Have Disk" and going to the new dir. Then choose 8800 GT in the list (should show only that). Unless you've already done that. I have limited testing options for the...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Umm. I'm not really sure where you're getting these problems from. I think its wanting to use the older nv4_mini.sys and can't load it. Are you running the setup program or just trying to install through Device Manager? If you get that prompt try pointing it to the place where the modded...

    First post updated. Please test! Thanks! Also mucho thanks BYU for offering to test tonight. I envy you having a store's worth of toys to play with! :)

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Yay. I figured out the problem after a fresh night's sleep. It was exceedingly simple. So the drivers should work fine now. Now we just need to try the SLI :P. Going to update first post in a bit.

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I just wanted to post I don't think this is my fault actually. I think the modifications I made are fine. These drivers don't seem to be working for me for at all for some reason (even the unmodded ones). So I might re-mod a different set. Haha, silly me. I guess I should have checked that...
