    I have just purchased the following spec and cannot get SLI working:

    Corsair 2GB DDR XMS4000PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS3
    AMD Opteron UP 144 San Diego 1.8GHz 1MB Cache (Socket 939)
    DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR EXPERT (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard
    Thermaltake VA8000BWA Armour Super Tower - Black
    Thermaltake PurePower Power Station 520W Modular ATX2.0 PSU
    NEC ND4551 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Black)
    XFX GeForce 7800GT Extreme LED Edition 256MB GDDR3Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740GD 10,000RPM SATA 8MB

    I get a signal through my TFT if I connect to the top card but not the bottom. I have connected all the power cables required on to the MB and I have flashed the BIOS to the latest rev but am now pulling out my hair to get any ideas to why this doesn't work.

    PLEASE HELP

    How did you fix it?

    Everywhere I read said connect the monitor to the bottom card but I could only ever get a signal on the top card and SLI works with it like that anyway.

    :confused:

    I disabled "enable dual NV card" and changed the PCI-e option above it. When i boot up the PC, I still get a blank screen until it reaches windows. However, I booted up on the first card initially and then enabled SLI within windows (go to the nvidia display options).

    Reboot on the second card and job done.
