YES, YES, YES - GUYS YOU MADE MY DAY !!!!!!!

It works :roll::rockout::toast:

RiC@RDOCs and johnspacks hints were successfull - now I only have to change the card to an SLI port and then I can update the drivers, too.

Greetinx,

Sukram.

Glad to help :D

Just thought I should update, all my games are still running problem free, and fast! So stick with the 270.61 driver for now, and enjoy your games in sli, and we will see if an update is released for the newer drivers!

It's not because of slipatch. It's driver problem. To be more accuracy it's because of some incapatibility of drivers (sli) and nonsli platforms. I have same issue. And i want to find time to do some research.

Did you reboot your PC after push update button?

Well first i updated SLI patch then i installed the newest drivers and when i tried to enable SLI it froze. I restarted the computer and then SLI was enabled.
Maybe i should have installed the drivers first and just then install the SLI patch

EDIT: yup just tested, first should install the drivers and then the SLI patch
