Are you sure you're in the right forum?
I confirm the new driver 301.42 is working fine on my system.
Asus Crosshair IV formula and GTX 570 x 2.
Always perform a driver sweeper clean uninstall of previous driver.
You can upload a picture to see it?
with what version of HyperSli? 07 or 08?
i have a M4A89GTD Pro mobo with 2 460tis
installed the last driver from nvidia 301.42
intalled hypersli hack
after windows 7 64 stars it appear that hypersli its working
but when i get in the nvidia control panel the sli option cant be found
also in the device manager only appear one card
virtual machine enabled
windows uac disabled
using sli bridge from an old a8n sli
2 560tis cards
This doesn't sound good at all.
It seems that one card is not properly powered
or even broken. Please try to remove the main card and plug in the other,
but only one card per test.
This is not a software issue for my opinion.
each one work fine
tested the two of them and they work ok
in my mobo when you are using a single card you have to place it in the pci express of the bottom and place a switch card in the first pci.
because the buttom pci is the only one that works with 16x bandwitch.
when i get the two of them connected it only work the one in the bottom.
already tested the first pci and it works ok but only if there is no video card in the other pci
my power supply its quite capable of sli with 560ti
1000w power supply
kingwin lazer 1000w 80+ gold
so i guess power its no the issue
thanks for the help in advance
right now i got both of the connected
and they both seem to work since the fan its working and got no blue screen or anything like that.
the problem its that the second video card (the one above its not detected)
I can't get version .8 installed on my CH IV with my 570's, it installs fine but upon reboot my login screen goes "black" for some reason.
can i ask what steps you followed to get it to work?
Well, the cards are working independently,
but only if them are installed alone.
I saw that your motherboard has an onboard videocard like hd4290.
Be sure that videocard is disabled in bios, because it could occupy the
lane of the pci 2.0 as hybrid crossfire x.
Anyway the issue is on the mainboard, considering that you do not see the second card for some reason, I suggest to find it out in the bios.
At boot, you see the choice win 7 hypersli?
If yes, after this point you got the black screen?
After reboot your screen remain black....
While the pc is on with black screen, and it looks like windows finished to load and is in idle,
try to disconnect the video cable dvi and connect it to another port of the cards. Try all the 3 ports.
there isnt any option to disable the onboard video card!
do you think it may be windows 7?
No option to disable the videocard, weird.
Usually if you use two amd cards in crossfire the "third" card must be turned off.
Are you sure about this? There must be a way to do it.
I don't think is a software problem like win 7 or drivers etc.
Hyperdli .7 is already installed, just trying to update it to .8.
that is correct, i choose the Sli menu from the multiboot menu, once chosen, the login screen does appear for a fraction of a second then goes totally "black". I see the bios load and everything no issues there, it is just when windows starts to load (login screen)
I will give what you suggested a try.
thanks for the reply
Oh man I knew it was possible:
Go in the BIOS under AI Tweaker
Scroll down until you will find " GFX Overclocking "
Select the voice " INTERNAL GRAPHICS MODE " and put it on disabled.
Save and exit bios and reboot.
Give it a try..... also I see under Advanced in bios > chipset the voice Primary video controller decides how boot the cards. Try to change this value and try.
already done that
disabled gfx overclocking
i have gpp,gfx0,igfx,pci order
but no change
when i plug the monitor to the card placed on top it wont give me signal
i have to place the monitor back to the low card to see image
is there a way to check with windows whats connected to the pci-e
because when the computer star it says it has a multimedia device in the second pci-e
thanks for the help in advance Federico!
That means that another device is using the resources of the pci-e and the second card goes invisible.
Try to change to another display mode order and reboot.
Sure is just a stupid thing causing this issue.
i am running out of ideas!
do you think it may be the old sli bridge i am using?
No, I believe is your motherboard having some limitations.
Read this link:
They say You can not crossfire 2 cards, but only 1 pci e card + onboard.
Search also in asus forums.
mmm its not that ,the problem is that the guy wants to pair a 5870 with the onboard gfx.
it wont let you because the difference of performance between the 5870 and the onboard its to great.
but you can crossfire with another one of the same performance or almost equal performace.
