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

    Weird!!! SLIpatch only uses 3 modified WINDOWS base files ('ntoskrnl.exe', 'hal.dll' and 'winload.exe'). They are from and for Windows... They have NOTHING to do with Ubuntu (Linux) kernel (nor "normal") files! Strange at its best!!! Maybe you can see if SLI is working in Ubuntu by using CUDA-Z...

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

    A little off-topic now: With Linux, do pre i7/i5 motherboards have SLI enabled? In other words: do nVidia Linux drivers check for the SLI certificate aswell? Is it possible to activate SLI with a X48, X38, P45, P35 (etc. etc. etc.) chipset with Linux? Or should we need another similar...

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

    Today I've updated my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 via Windows Update, and after that, I always got a BSOD concerning 'nvlddmkm.sys' (I'm using "custom" SLIpatch 0.7a and nVidia drivers v197.13. I said "custom" SLIpatch because I don't use dual boot option at startup, I always boot with SLIpatched...

    ¿Eres el mismo MasMe de EoL? Si es que sí, un placer verte por aquí, y me entiendes lo que estoy escribiendo: - ¿Por qué estas con los drivers v190.62? Ve a por los v197.13 que el invento funciona SIN drivers modificados (con el SLI-Patch v0.7a, y TAMPOCO have falta ningún rollo del SLI...

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

    Darrenm72, you have a real mess in your mind or my english is not good enough to understand you. All you have to do is: 1.- Install Windows 7 x64 2.- Disable UAC 3.- Download and unzip in a folder the SLI Patch 0.7a (for Windows 7 x64) 4.- Open a Command Prompt window with Administrator...

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

    Obviously, it's not a matter of life or death to have newest kernel v6.0.6002.18160 running in my system. Honestly, I don't know which vulnerabilities it fixes that v6.0.6002.18082 doesn't. If you patch v6.0.6002.18160, I will be running a SLIpatched system with <almost> no vulnerabilities...

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

    First of all, check that your MOTHERBOARD has the latest BIOS available. As I can see, latest one is version F7 for your motherboard. If you don't have this one, flash your MOTHERBOARD with it. Then, check that the second PCIe is also controlled by the NorthBridge, as the first one. If the...

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

    Mashuga, what do you mean by "hiccups"? The random "driver crash-and-revive" that v195.xx had or what? If so, I'd also want to know if v196.xx has this problem.

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

    I experience the same "driver crash" as Triton.se, and it seems to appear randomly. It appears under Vista x64, with SLIPatch 0.42, on an Asus P5K Premium/WiFi-AP (chipset P35) with two 8800GT. I haven't tried SLIPatch 0.50 fot Win7 x64 yet. Is there a SLIPatch 0.50 for Vista x64 ?

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

    To "override" those Windows permissions issues, you can use the Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD. From there you can do whatever you want to any file, without Windows annoying you. Once done, you can boot again into Windows, but this time with modified files running. Remember to make a backup of the...

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

    I completely agree with Mashuga. Anyone who doesn't like work done (and being done right now) by anatolymik, sveetsnelda, TiN, and everyone making this great project, is absolutely free to leave this community and start trying SLI hack by theirselves, with their own means. If you have...

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

    New method (customized by me for not messing up with boot options) tested and SLI working OK in Windows 7 x64 and Vista x64 with drivers v195.62 in my P5K-Premium (P35 chipset) with 2x 8800GT. Thank you and great work!!!!!!!

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

    Yeah, but prior to replacing, I can "backup" original 'ntoskrnl.exe', 'hal.dll' and 'winload.exe', simply by renaming them to 'ntoskrnl.exe.bak', 'hal.dll.bak' and 'winload.exe.bak', for example. OK, so, what i should do if I don't wanna mess up with 'boot.ini', boot options and so on would...

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

    I'm going to try new method under Windows 7 x64 (already succeeded enabling SLI with HALmod and 191.07 drivers) but... I don't wanna mess up with boot.ini and boot options, as I already have a custom boot menu with XP x32, Vista x64, W7 x64 and Ubuntu 9.10, so... What about if I replace...

    How is that good work in both methods (modded drivers and modded HAL) for v195.62 going? Keep on that awesome work, guys!! And happy 2010 !!!

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

    OK, keep on this AWESOME work!! You're doing great! In case you wanna include another succesful one: I got SLI working with 2x8800GT on an Asus P5K Premium/WiFi-AP (Intel P35 chipset), under Vista x64 (modded 190.62 drivers) and Windows 7 x64 (modded HAL & original 191.07 drivers)

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

    Quadro drivers v191.66 are the latest available, so perhaps you're having the same problem as we're having with latest GeForce drivers v195.62 (both launched in November 2009). Try using prior Quadro drivers, as v191.00 or v190.38 ("equivalent" to our GeForce v191.07 and v190.62). Choose your...

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

    First of all, excuse my poor English. I'm from Spain, and trying to do my best explaining this, and to "translate" from my Spanish OS to what it should say in English. Anyway, YES, I think you must use modded drivers to get SLI hack working on Vista x64. At least I did that way. This is what...

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

    Yes, in nVidia Control Panel, under "3D Settings" there's the option "Set PhysX Configuration" when SLI is NOT available. If SLI is available, this option changes to "Set SLI and PhysX Configuration", and from there you can activate SLI. You can also download latest GPU-Z and at the bottom of...
