  1. Hi,

    I recently sold/removed one of graphics cards from my machine which has been in there around 2 years, the cards are nvidea gtx 280s which i rarely ran in Sli well now i have removed the bottom one and sold it my machine will just freeze anytime. Is this just windows playing up because 1 of the cards are missing?
    I dont get no warning that i'm going to get a crash, i could be playing a game or just on the desktop. The screen just freezes with no sound or anything and only option is to power off. It tends to freeze many times in a day.

    I'm on windows 7 64bit

    Could anyone help please?

    Have you reinstalled the drivers and unconfigured the SLI?
