Well, none of the solutions seem to apply to me... :drool:
I have enabled the 8-nc-1-8 PCI-e option in the Bios.
My SLI aperature thingy is Disabled.
My PCI-e spread spectum is Disabled.
I have reflashed the bios to 11/02. (The mobo came with that, but I figured it might have gotten scrambled...).
I know that the 7800s, FX-55, and 4 gigs of ram works, since I pulled it out of a working A8N-SLI. Just to make sure, I tested everything in the following motherboards (swapping parts out and stuff):
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
Asus A8N-SLI Premium
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
Every motherboard works fine with my hardware, EXCEPT the DFI board. Granted, I have no other DFI board, so I could not try that route.
Here is a list of Drivers I have tried:
I have not tried older drivers, simply because I do not feel that I should be forced to use old drivers to get such a good motherboard working. If I have to resort to 7x.xx series drivers or something, I'll be going back to Asus and stock speeds.
The bottom line is this: SLI DOES NOT WORK. If I try to enable it, my computer starts trippin' bad, and it starts to flicker the screen a lot. Enabling Dual 6600GT in the Bios makes my computer worse. I can play games fine with only one card, but DirectX is acting up, and the computer crashes a lot. I have tried (with this and the aforementioned motherboards)
List of Operating Systems I have tried:
Windows XP Professional SP2
Windows Server 2003 x32 Enterprise
Windows Server 2003 x64 Enterprise
The Nvidia CP only shows that I have DirectX 3 installed. I have run the February DirectX 9 update, and dxdiag shows that I have 9.0c.
