View Full Version : SLI Disables AGP Texture Acceleration

10-11-05, 12:43 PM
Ok so when I dont have SLI enabled, I can run games and do all 3 DX test in dxdiag. I then enable SLI and AGP Texure Acceleration disables (which can not be reenabled) and all my games crash with an error saying something like I dont have a DX9 card. I have 2 6800GTs and the 81.84 drivers. I have no idea what is wrong with it either im new to SLI.

Thanks... :(

Have you tried the 78.05's? The 81.84's are not so good drivers and have lots of bugs

Why would AGP texture acceleration work at all when someone has even one PCI-Express card?

Ill install them now and try it, I've had nothing but problems with SLI so far :thumbdwn:

Yeah AGP Texture acceleration is enabled when I just use 1 card and everything works fine, when I enable both cards I cannot enable it and everything crashes.

Ok when I install the 78.05's i get a blue screen as windows boots saying "Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area nv4_mini.sys"

so I go into safe mode and install the 81.84's again. Now when I go into SLI it doesnt let me select anything and my 2nd video card says "This device cannot start (Code 10)"

I was thinking the same thing...

Its really odd, I can enable AGP Texture Acceleration or disable it. Also, now that I've reinstalled my 81.84s SLI doesnt show up on the Control Panel. For some reason I cannot activate my second card.

This is really getting on my nerves. When I install my cards, do I have to install the driver twice? Maybe I'm doing something wrong in the install process. I have no idea this is really effin gay.

1) AGP, does that motherboard really have an AGP slot?
2) Just a guess, but have you flipped the SLI motherboard switch?

No AGP on my motherboard at all. Have no idea what the deal is with it.

And my jumpers are set to sli mode on the MOBO

I think the drivers are all messed up, you need to re-install windows.

Ok so I had a bunch of problems so now I'm back to the basics. I ran with 1 card, installed my drivers and my plug and play monitor. Now i turn of the system, put in the 2nd card, connected the [ thing and put the jumpers on SLI. I boot up windows and it says "new hardware found" and I installed the drivers. I rebooted then and nothing happens. I go into SLI in the control pannel and its the same as always with just saying "Try sli!" or whatever. I look into the hardware manager and it says "This device cannot start (Code 10)"

Do you have to use the bridge SLI connector for 6800GT SLI? Should try reformat if nothing works.

Yeah its connected right.

Is there a setting in your bios to select pci-e as your primary graphic device?

Do both of your vid cards have the same bios?
