Do a clean uninstall through the control panel and uninstall everything that starts with Nvidia. Reboot when it tells you to. When all that is done, use Treexy Driver Fusion (formerly Phyxion Driver Sweeper) to clean up any remnants on your drive and registry (will have to reboot).

 

Then try installing the drivers with both cards with the SLI bridge connected.

Test each card separately on the same PCIE slot to see if they both work. If they do, test one of them on the 2nd PCIE slot. It could be a card or motherboard PCIE slot.

 

Also, what PSU are you using? EDIT: nm, see that it's a PC Power and Cooling 950W.

My bet................ it's the #2 x16 PCIe slot on the motherboard. Just a gut feeling.

I've done SLI for years, it's not an SLI problem. Did you test each card on it's own and running benchmarks, or did you just swap your graphics cards to different positions?

i swap them in different pcie slots and i can use them with sli disabled ive played games like that without any problem but when i try to enable sli monitor goes off without signal and have to restar even though the pc seems keep working just the monitor goes off and when i restart the drivers arent recognized and in the control panel and system says error code 43 its very weird i will try to install a different copy of windows if not i will try to use each card alone to test if they are both ok will also try a different monitor in case if its my monitor that doesnt work i really need to fix this and btw thanks for the fast response man

You know the last time I used the 3 way SLI Bridge for just 2 cards it caused weird issues in my system with my 2 GTX480's. SLI would not work at all for one and when playing games the system would go completely screwy.

 

Consider getting a single Cable SLI bridge and try again to eliminate that???

+1 though I've never used a 3 way SLI Bridge, wouldn't think that'd be an issue, but it's worth trying.
