    I would test each card separately in a different system and see if they work at all, if not RMA them is all you can do.

    If they do both work, uninstall them via device manager, go in safe mode and uninstall the drivers for them and then do the reinstall for Crossfire again

    Its a brand new mobo also its a Evga 780i sli the cards worked for a day in the mobo. I tested both card indepently in the mobo nothing would be displayed. I think my last psu had something to do with it because it fried 2 days earlier. one other thing is weird with the mobo is that it doesn't want to boot windows at all with my rapter pluged iin even though bios sees it

    Sorry I was asleep I meant SLI of course

    I would test them in a different board to be sure, but as you said you PSU may have fried them!!

    Luckly i had my warranty still i sent them in yesterday. Hopefully theyll fix them asap. those cards were cashed, they didnt work at all. now i have to figure out this annoying Hdd issue with my new mobo the Nforce evga 780i motherboard. It shows my raptor in bios that its working, but when i want to boot into windows for writeong it the comp freezes or wont even load windows. unless i unhook the raptor then the 300 gig loads windows fine? Any ideas
