Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

Q: Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

Hi, A few days ago, I made a small purchase.
I bought 2x ZOTAC nVidia GTS 450's and a SLi Bridge connector.

I've read around that the SLi enable option should be available under the 3D section, with the PhysX configuration, but it's just simply NOT there.

Even GPU-Z says that SLi is disabled!

The video cards are installed, I disabled my onboard video from my Motherboard Bios.
But still, it does not let me SLi those bad boys to squeeze max performance out of my pc.

What should I do?

Preferred Solution: Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

For starters you cannot run SLI on an AMD chipset, you need a motherboard with a Nvidia chipset. Short of replacing your motherboard or running a single card, there isn't much you can do other than returning the cards and going with a single card or getting two AMD cards to run in Crossfire if you want dual cards.

Personally I would return them and go with a single card. For what you paid for those two (or at least the price on Newegg at the moment) you could have got a GTX 470 or HD 6950, either of which performs about the same (or a bit faster in some cases) as 2 GTS 450's in SLI.

Do you see an option in the Nvidia control panel for the card specs / increasing clock freq, fan info, etc?
(it is set to Advanced mode)
I removed .75, rebooted into plain VGA and put these new ones on and did another reboot - but i dont see all the info that I used to see previously...?

A:Nvidia control panel option for the card specs?

Cards ID and driver versions should still be there. Increasing clock freq, fans etc is handled by a seperate program - nVidia System Tools with ESA Support. Reinstall this program.

I've had this P40 a year or so with no issues. Discovered some sluggish graphics performance, checked to make sure nvidia was being used, and it wasn't. Went to change the nVidia settings and there was no nVidia control panel in my menus. Tried installing the latest drivers for the Quadro M500M. Uninstalled all nVidia drivers and software, directories (in C:\ and in Program Files) and installed selecting the "clean installation" option. Nothing I do will bring the nVidia control panel back. The whole reason I purchased this was the Quadro support. Outraged I just paid for another year of warranty only to find out that doesn't cover software issues at all. Anyone have a suggestion? Before I sell this and buy a machine from a brand with better support while under warranty.

1. When trying to open existing or new graphic email attachments, the following error message appears: "This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel." Where do I find this?
2. Have not been able to download Adobe Flash Player. Each time I click "Download" nothing happens. Could the Norton security program be part of this problem?
 

A:Folders Option control panel

Right click on the attachment that won't open and 'save as', save to your desktop. Right click the file and go to 'open with' and choose which program you would like to open the files as a defualt. Make sure the 'Always use the selected appication for files of this type' checkbox is checked and open. Now when you open the attachment in outlook, it should load in the application you selected.
For Flash, go to www.adobe.com and search for standalone flash install. You should find the download page and be able to download a setup file to run locally which shouldn't be affected by norton or any other programs,
Hope this helps,
Stu.

Quick question, i am using a ATI radeon 700064mb pci and i was wondering what is the difference between, Display:

Plug and play = (name of card)

and

Default plug and play = (name of card)

What happens when i put it on default, more graphics, sound better, faster load times , what?

thanks.
 

A:Question about an option in my control panel

Hi U2K,
My guess is probably nothing. If the default means regarding a monitor that doesn't return a plug and play code to the os, it only allows the most common refresh rates at common resolutions.
If the card identifies the monitor properly, it should disable any resolutions or refresh rates that that specific mon can't or shouldn't run.

I have XP Home SP3 generally running quite nicely but the other day I noticed when I opened Control panel that the Task Pane no longer gives the option of viewing it in either Classic view or category view.

I have it set for classic view as this is my preference. So there is no problem from my angle. It's just not possible to switch back to category view if I ever choose to in the future.

Kelly's Korner gives a tweak to set the view either way but this does not reinstate the option on the task pane.

Just in case someone is going to suggest it, No I can't do a system restore because it is turned off.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hello jackisback

This may be what you are looking for.

Open Control Panel > click tools > select Folder Options > under General tab select

"show common tasks in folders"

This should get the task pane back if you want it back in the future.

Hello All,

I have been trying to solve a Zone Alarm problem, but the fix seems to have turned into a Windows problem. I hope someone can help me.

I've used ZoneAlarm Security Suite for several years now, but during the past year I have been unable to install upgrades. Usually the process gets stuck during the uninstall of the old version. SO this time I tried to manually uninstall first. It seemed to work (via Add/Remove Programs) and then I tried installing the new version, but it got stuck while copying files over.

On the Zonealarm Forum I got some help from someone who gave me some instructions to follow to "completely" uninstall all zonealarm (zonelabs) files. Following these instructions (which I'll post below) appeared to have removed Zonealarm, but I still could not install the new version - it got stuck at the exact same point while copying files over.

So now I don't have the old version and can't install the new version.
Now to the Windows problem. (Thanks for your patience)

Everything else on my PC seems to be working fine. Email, internet, other programs...but then I went to use Photoshop Elements and it started up by showing me the user license and asking for acceptance (which it hasn't done since I installed it over a year ago).

A:Missing Add/Remove option in Control Panel

Hello and welcome to TSF


Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT. This starts the Registry Editor. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<Program Name>
( <Program Name> here is Adobe Photoshop Elements)
*
In the right-pane, do the following:

Double-click NoRemove (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0
Double-click NoModify (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0

If NoRemove is set to 1, the Remove button will be unavailable
If NoModify is set to 1, the Change button will be unavailable

This should help with Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Now, for ZA.

Try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. As long as you installed the application using the Windows Installer, this utility will remove all the folders, files, registry keys, and entries from your system and allow you to start over with a clean slate.

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
Locate and run msicuu2.exe to install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.

Hello Kodiak420!

The Nvidia Control Panel follows with your Graphic Driver. Try reinstalling your Driver by using Nvidia Uninstaller (uninstall from your control panel as we know!)



   Warning
Your resolution will change after you restarted your computer, it's all normal because Windows 7 is using the default driver


   Tip
If you want to clean leftover files use the popular software, Driver Sweeper

Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

If you don't want to uninstall your driver, i'm sure there's some members having other suggestions for you!
Hope this helps.

I am having an issue with nvidia control panel 2.5 and an xp machine with a geforce 6200 by bfgtech.

The problem is that I cannot access the "manage custom resolution" feature in where I should be able to define my resolution wanted and force the resolution.

The reason for this is so that I can use this machine as a media box. It has s-video out and digital audio output so its good to go. The allowed resolutions are not cutting it as they don't display correctly when it is plugged in to the tv. It works but everything looks fuzzy.

I have another laptop with s-video out and it has nvidia control panel 2.2. I was able to select the 720 by 480 resolution which works perfectly with my tv. The tv is a regular 50 inch projection tv using an s-video cable.

i uninstalled current drivers and installed the 185.85 as recommended. I have a 9800gtx and when i try to install the control panel it says "setup failed to read Display Driver to be used with this package". I read that i should temporary disable winrar, which i did. also, i saw on the post that the data should be in .cab not .rar, which they are.

help me please =)

A:NVIDIA control panel help.

Unless there is more to it than I can visualize in my brains, disabling (can you even do that? heh heh) Winrar has no affect on anything to do with NVidia, drivers or your video card.

I suggest you Google for how to clean your system of NVidia files and uninstall NVidia driver.

Based on your reading, when you are satisfied your system is "clean", then reinstall the driver by running the .exe.

Use this driver to reinstall.

Like, 2 times faster , or??

A:Nvidia Control Panel

I've only noticed slight differences with some games and programs. When using the advanced settings there is a tab for application specific settings and I think those settings override the global settings. Unless your using the slider (basic panel).

I've also noticed that the older the game the less impact your settings seem to have. Like with Doom3, I cant change/improve the quality no matter what settings I use in the CP. I do notice a change in FPS in the game. But visualy, I cant see a difference.

I would be currious to hear some more detailed and accurate info from other users.

Also I'll mention I have the nvidia service set to manual. Im not sure how much impact if any that has.

what you may have done is down loaded the wrong drivers for your card ??

i have done this befor !!

so go back to the home site for your card & compare the versions

also you may need a patch for the upgrade from the home site for the card ??

now when installing the new drivers & software for the card did you uninstall the older version then reboot & install the newer version then reboot

just need to ask

also

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now once there you will want to select from the toolbar of the window(veiw) then a drop down menu / from it you will select (show all hidden devices)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties

I quickly assume, maybe something is blocking it? , I disable my firewall, my AV and it's firewall, and User Account Control Settings, I lowered it to Never notify.

I rebooted, tried again, same thing happens. So I thought maybe it isn't comparable? but I have a GTS 250 NVIDIA geforce, with windows 7 x64, and downloaded the one with those specifications ofc.

Not only that but from the beginning I couldn't view NVIDIA control panel either.

When I click NVIDIA control Panel, a pop up says"

The NVIDIA Display Panel Extension cannot be created.

Possible reasons include:
Version mismatch. Resintalling display drivers may solve this problem.

I been thinking of maybe erasing my NVIDIA drivers and reinstalling, but I'm afraid it won't download or "allow" me to download the driver of NVIDIA to make my graphic card work as it is now... ... Read more

I was using a friends PC (windows XP, IE 8) and right clicked on desktop and in menu it had NVIDIA control panel, being it was something new to me I clicked on it thinking it would open and I could see what it was. Nothing really happened after clicking on it but when I did a restart all the desktop short cuts loaded blank and the names of links contained .ink after them.
None of them will open neither can I open things in Control Panel. Was going to do a system restore but again nothing will open. It was not in add/remove programs for I was in there prior to finding this and it was not listed. He said he did not download it and not aware it was there. Do I owe him a new PC or can someone bail we out of this mess?

thanks, tlh99

Hi Folks,

I have a dual boot system with Win XP on one partition and Vista 64 Ultimate on the second partition. Sometime recently, perhaps at the latest Windows Update on Vista, my nVidia Control Panel stopped working in Vista 64. I am using nVidia driver 185.85, the latest non-beta version available. I am using nVidia system tools 6.05, the latest set available. I have cleaned out my drivers with Driver Sweeper, and reloaded them with no change. I have loaded the drivers with all virus software shut down, with all unnecessary apps shut down. When I try to start up the nVidia control panel, whether in the Windows Control Panel or other shortcut, Vista tells me that "nVidia Control Panel has stopped working". I am getting the impression that the nVidia drivers are not running, since when I add them they are not defaulting to max resolution like they normally do. The system seems to be running on some default video driver instead.

CPU, GPU, MCP temperatures are nominal, no indications of problems there.

I would greatly appreciate some advice on how to trouble shoot this and get back to working properly.

My system specs are as follows:

OS Name Microsoft? Windows Vista™ Ultimate 64 bit
Version 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
System Manufacturer XFX78I
System Model XFX nForce 780i 3-Way SLI
System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz, 2400 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/D... Read more

Hey everyone. How ya been.

Basically here's my problem. I'm trying to open the Nvidia Control Panel, and it crashes and gives me the option to check for solutions online.. and Nothing seems to get the Control Panel to open.

Yes, I've done a Re Install of Drivers, I've updated and tried the 180.43, 44, 48 and then just did the 181.20's. Still doesn't work. I was then told that the 185 extreme G drivers helped someone with same problem. So I just barely installed those, with NO luck. It's still crashing. Basically I just got my new GTX 260 today and I now can run SLI, but I can't get the darn control panel open to enable SLI... I'm going crazy here.

I googled the problem, and someone suggested I delete the nvapps.xml folder in the actual driver file location and then reinstall. I tried that as well.

If ANYONE has any idea's on how to fix this I'm very open to suggestions. I've just installed NV system Tools, but if it's anything like nTune I don't want it near my system. lol.

Please help me out. I wanna see these babies in action.

Thanks!

When I do a right mouse click on my display (to look at my screen settings) I get the following error message:

NVIDIA control panel application, 3.3.532.01 has stopped working

My system:
OS Name: Microsoft? Windows Vista Home Premium (32bit)
Version: 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002

How can I fix this problem?
I have attached a image of the error that I see.

A:NVIDIA control panel application

Welcome
I would start with the graphics driver
Go to device manager, make sure that the graphics driver is up to date and that no yellow markers are anywhere to be seen.
Make sure the the tree, in the left panel, is not open anywhere and open tree indicates a problem in that area.

I cant enter my graphics card control panel and when i went to Nvidias site and tried automaticly detect my GPU it said i have no Nvidia GPU. I do have NVIDIA GeForce GT740M and it worked very well for the first day i bought this computer. Now i cant get to my Nvidia control panel.. When i try to get in there it says that my monitor is not connected with Nvidia graphics card. When i try to play Battlefield 3 it plays with my integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. How can i get my GT740M working again ? I refreshed my computer without loosing any apps from my windows 8. Lost only my deskopt programs. It didnt help. I tried to upgrade to the latest drivers but it didnt work. I deleted the latest drivers and tried to install a bit older drivers but i couldnt do that (Dont remember what it said). My Nvidia Geforce Experience didnt recognise my GT740M either. Is my graphics driver broken or is there some decently easy way to reconnect it. I dont see any reason how it could have broken in my use. My Nvidia also disappeared from my system tray.

I really appeciate helpful comments.

Thanks.

A:Cant enter my Nvidia control panel !

Well, it seems like an hardware issue as it happened to me recently , in that case u should visit a near-by repair shop or call the customer support of the graphics company. (If warranty still applies, your lucky)
