I've been used SLI for ages and never had a problem with it until nVIDIAs recent driver releases.

Since I started using them I have had a problem where the computer would lock up with random colored lines fixed across the screen, after playing gmaes like KOTOR for a while, or EVE Online with the advanced effects turned on (maybe the HDR, or bloom, not sure.)

It also did it instantly when I turned on the new iTunes 8 visualiser. However, I have just tried disabling SLI and the iTunes visualiser worked fine. And so I assume the other games would?

Anyone else had any problems like this? Or if so come up with any fixes? Or know of any drivers which fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Ever since I downloaded the latest driver for the Nivida I've been receiving a lot of blue screens, giving me the only option of restarting. Don't know why but I think these driver updates are far worse, than better from the results I've seen.

I can't really be bothered to go back to the latest drivers, I'm just dealing with it till my new rig arrives which hopefully won't have any problems with the same card.
