I just got a 2nd EVGA 7950 GT to run in SLI. I installed it, and it ran fine. I set up SLI with no problems. I later decided i wanted to watch a movie, so i connected my TV to my video card using the S-Video and RCA cables. I reset my computer, and it stops recognizing the second card. It doesn't show up on the hardware list, and i can't get to the SLI options in the Nvidia control panel. I updated the drivers and everything, but it wont recognize it. I tried just taking the cable out and restarting, but it doesn't seem to help. I have to completly take out the card, put it back in, and then reboot. Only then will the computer recognize it again. I made sure the card was seated correctly, and the power was hooked up securely. I can't understand why it does this. Any ideas? If you need any more information, just ask. I will include my system specs. DXDiag is included.
UPDATE: I put the card back in, turned my computer on, and it showed up again. I had to reset again, but when i did, it again disappeared. So i don't think the S-Video has anything to do with it.
