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?

Video Card:
2x http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500187&cm_re=ZOTAC_GTS_450-_-14-500-187-_-Product

SLi Bridge connector:

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 have a new T470p running Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Build 16296. In Device Manager I can see 2 display adapters, an "Intel HD Graphics 630" and an "NVIVIDA GeForce 940MX". After updating the NVIDIA drivers to v22.21.13.8205 when I start the NVIDIA Control Panel applet I get the following dialog:  Previously the applet would open normally. Any ideas as to how to get the applet to open normally?

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,

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)


Default plug and play = (name of card)

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


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.

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.
Locate and launch the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility on the Start menu.
From the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility window, locate the application in the list and click the Remove button.
Once the application has been removed, click the Exit button to close the utility.

Hi, I came across this issue while trying to solve another, the issue of the annoying on-screen caps lock indicator (solved using this method). Many of the solutions I found involved going to control panel-->Display and choosing "Advanced settings" or right click on desktop-->screen resolution-->advanced settings.  My computer does not have a "Display option" in the control panel:It also does not have an "Advanced settings" or similar option in the display settings in the settings menu/through right clicking on the desktop and selecting screen resolution. Why is it seemingly impossible for me to edit anything to do with the display beyond a very basic level? Thanks.

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.

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!)

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

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 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".

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.

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 always changed those Perfomance and Quality thingies, but never noticed a difference, what does it change?
I mean, those 32xq Anti-Aliasing, never seen a difference.

Is there a performance change?
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.

I'm having a fairly long time problem of not being able to access the nVidia Control Panel for my GeForce 6800. I was able to at one time, but after installing a newer driver version, I've lost the ability to access the control panel and I have not yet been able to access it again. When I try to load it, I get the waiting cursor, but after a few seconds, it reverts back and noting loads. The last version that I believe I had the control panel working was 162.18, and I think it stopped working when I tried to update from that to 163.75, but I can't be sure of it. I have 169.21 right now.

A:Can't Open nVidia Control Panel

hello ,

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


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

then get back to us

Here's a query:

On, for example, Far Cry 2 I have all the display settings on full, including antialiasing (can be set to x8). However on my Nvidia Control Panel the antialiasing mode setting is set to 'override application setting' (see attachment).

My question is this: in order to get the best from my game should I set the game's settings on full (or to whatever I want) and set the Nvidia settings to full too (or to match those of the game)?

I am confused by this because logic suggests that the Nvidia CP does actually override all other settings but when I run Crysis the game crashes if I have antialiasing on full but when I set the antialiasing to x4 then it runs fine. This would suggest that Nvidia CP doesn't override all other settings.


A:Antialiasing and Nvidia Control Panel

On the Application Settings tab are there any preloaded applications there? Sometimes common games may be preloaded there with default settings. The globalsettings only get used if there is NOT a setting for a specific app on the applications tab.

But anyway, you SHOULD set the settings for your specific games on the application settings tab rather than on the global settings tab so that you don't have issues like the one you are describing where two games are incompatoible with a single set of settings.

As for who overrides who... I've found that it is somewhat random :/ It depends on exactly how/when the game or application applies it's settings I think. Sometimes the app overrides, sometimes it doesn't. I just tweak the applications settngs for the app in the nvidia control panel then also set the settings in the app to match how I want them.

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.
