    Basically; it is not detecting my driver for my second card. I run them in SLi. When I select the second card in the Target adapter; the Driver settings say this. "No supported drivers detected for this display adapter; etc. etc.."
    Although; under that it shows that I have Version 178.24; which is what I am using right now.
    When I select the main card. It does say "ForceWare Detected".

    So is one card using the driver and the other card using a generic Windows driver? Or is this just some sort of error or bug with RivaTuner?
    I would hate to have one card using the up to date driver and the other one not.


    Also when I select the cards; I notice that one of them has this behind it in the list. (/Generic PnP Monitor) I am thinking that is just showing which card has a monitor attached to it.
    Am I right on that part?

    I read the FAQ page the read-me file and even did a lot of searches for it. I could not find anything on it.
    But I will look again starting from scratch; just for you. If I still do not find anything then I will post back. Give me a day or two. It is a lot of stuff to read all over again.

    No need to do it for me, do it for yourself.

    True that. LOL I am reading through it right now. Of coarse my head is spinning. :roll: I think that I am going to need to break out a few Red Bulls. This is going to be an all night'er. :smoke:

    I think that I may have pieced it together from a few things.
    I will try to explain what I have found out in Laymen Terms; since everything that I have read is a bit technical. If I am wrong; you can just say "Nope" or "Keep looking".

    First; I already new that SLi is not fully supported yet. Most of what you have is done through the primary display adapter. So with that in mind.

    When enabling SLi; it combines and uses the drivers through the primary display adapter. Thus I would only see it detected through that primary GPU that is selected; when SLi is enabled; because they are acting as one card.

    Yet when SLi is disabled; it should and does show the individual ForceWare being detected on both cards. Also when SLi is disabled; it shows both primary and secondary adapter heads for both of the cards; within the list in Target Adapter section.

    That is the simplest way that I can explain what I have read so far.
    So am I on the right track? :)
