  1. Hi,

    Yesterday when i enabled SLI it enabled it correctly, but every 5 minutes it would BSOD and restart (this occurs even when not playing games). So I took the 2nd card out and let it run to make sure things were still fine. Today I put the 2nd card back in along with the sli bridge, and when I try to enable SLI it will restart, and the nvidia control panel will still say SLI is disabled. I reinstalled the nvidia display drivers but that didn't help.

    Build:
    Motherboard- Asus a8n32 SLI deluxe
    Graphic cards- 1) Evga geforce 7600 GT 256 mb
    2) Nvidia geforce 7600 gt 256 mb (received from nvidia, was originally used by them for testing purposes)
    Memory- DDR Single channel, 2 sticks of 1 gb each, (one is PQI brand the other is corsair)
    CPU- Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 2.4 GHz
    Power supply- Thermaltake purepower 600 w
    Amperage- 36A total
