Hey People,

I have 2 x Nvidia GT 240 GPU's installed in my PC along side a Nvidia 7900 GS which I use for my monitor the GT 204's are purely for SETI Crunching!

My problem is that one of the GT 240's is recognised by Boinc and is hapily crunching away but the other is not recognised, please see below.

Removed the 7900GS, Installed the latest drivers for Nvidia 196.21 and installed DVI to VGA adaptor in second card and all is well! Panic over, have noticed though that grpahics are a bit jumpy, but ever time i whack the 7900gs it cocks up not only the drivers but boinc wont connect to locahost either! So its staying out!

the 7900 wont run Seti so its useless for seti. You're better off plugging your monitor into one of the other cards and dealing with your video from them. The video from them shouldn't be bad since those cards should have ample RAM to run your desktop and CUDA tasks

Hi, did you extend your desktop to the second/third card/monitor ?
After doing so and temporarily hooking up a second monitor, you can pull the 2nd
monitor and you're good to go.
