Hi there, :)

I have 2x GeForce GT 240 1GB GDDR3 ... product link http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gt_240_us.html

The problem is one of these cards system can not recognized. The driver was installed by using working GT240

I take photo from GPU-Z

please check these 2 photo

not working GT240 ...... Photo1
working GT240 ............ Photo2

I see there is big difference in detail, Is that alright?

even when I try to open BIOS ROM by using NiBiTor v5.9 to see clock in 2D, 3D it's give me an error message

The Hardware ID is all wrong on your non-working card. Did you just buy this card, or has it been working in another machine? Can you RMA it and get another one?

It could be a BIOS issue, though that's less likely. It's either a damaged GPU chip or some of the resistors that are used to select it's ID.

The card's ID corresponds to the mobile/notebook part, GeForce GT330M.

outdated GPU-Z

I highly doubt it has anything to do with your problem, but I noticed the version in your screenshots is 0.6.7. You should download the current version, 0.7.2. It also lists the non-working cad as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". You should ensure you've installed current drivers for the card. Use Device Manager and right-click the card in question and select "Update Driver Software".

Yeah, that what I thought, Do you think flashing BIOS could resolve the problem?
