Alienware m9700 SLI issue


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a m9700 with 2x7900 GS go's in SLI. I decided to upgrade the drivers, but I forgot what an enormous pain that was last time. I know I eventually had sucess with drivers from here, but I forgot how I did it. Here is my issue: After I install the drivers for the first card, it pulls up the found new HW wizard for the second. After the drivers are installed a second time, the screen blanks. When I reboot the screen still blanks. I know I was foolish to mess with it while it was working, but I must have blocked out the pain from last time!

Did you uninstall the previous drivers before you tried installing them. Also, what drivers did you use?

yes: uninstalled from the CP, safe mode, driver cleaner, reboot and reinstall

and I tried 185.20 and 181.22 with the modded .ini s

The first driver is fine, it just craps itself after then second time i do the install hardware wizard
