Sometimes it is a good idea to remove old drivers, before installing new ones. I would suggest that you put one card in only remove any Nvidia drivers, folders, etc, then switch off. Put in both cards and let windows find them. Then install your new drivers.
for the item that gives you a code 10, delete it's driver in the pane or just left click and remove hardware, again let windows find it.
ok i've been playing around with the cards and it seems as if when there is two cards in my pc it turns off the second pcie slot, i can run with no prob's with one card in ether slots but soon as you add the second card my second pcie slot stops working i'v compaired the two diffrent cards and my new cards which are 7300's have a sli bridge conneters on them but my old cards which are 6600's dont do yo think a sli bridge might solve my prob?
Do not know how many PCIE slots you have, tried in different slots? An interupt problem perhaps?
i have 2 PCIE slots 5 & 6 slot 6 is the one that does'nt want to work when theres all ready a g-card in it unless i use the cards that came with the system here is my mb info if helps at all
