Default Re: Nvidia Drivers failed to load GTX280. Tri-Sli

Have you tried to run each card by itself ,to make sure all cards are working right .Are all your cards the same.I run TRI-SLI with my three BFG GTX 280's ,one of them is a OCX which is clocked at 666/1458/2400 and the other two are the plain BFG GTX 280 which are clocked at 602/1296/2214,but I checked each one out to make sure they would run at 666/1458/2400,they would actually run higher,but I just wanted to make sure they would run at OCX speeds.That way I put the fastest card in slot one ,so all three would run at 666/1458/2400 and I have never had any problems with any of the drivers loading right.I don't run dual monitors ,so that might be your problem,but that would be easy to check out ,by running just one monitor.What windows are you running.If you did a clean install ,you need to load your system drivers and at least put in service pack one ,then load the newest whql drivers.and make sure your three way sli tab is fitting good over the three cards ,and make sure when you go in the nvidia control pannel that it is set to tri-way sli and phys-x is enable.,which i am sure you have already done.
