    I just installed my second gtx 260 core 216 and it isn't showing up in the device manager. It is however getting power because the fan on the card is spinning.

    What should I do?

    Can you give a little more information, for example what Nvidia drivers have you installed and version. Also what are you seeing (if anything) under the Display Adaptors in device manager (are you seeing a generic VGA device etc).

    In addition might be worth doing a cut and paste of the first screen in system information so we know what memory, cpu, motherboard you have.

    If you dont know how to collect some of this information then please let us know and we can help.

    Kindest regards

    Agreed, if your using the motherboard in your spec it will not work, hence my above post for more information as I'm assuming your not using that :)

    For some reason the 55nm gtx 260 core 216 had to be in the first slot. If it was the other way around vista x64 would not recognize the second gpu.
