    OK if you are getting that type of the problem than at that time i am sure that yyou are using the SLI bridge, am i right? and here since you are saying that you are getting this problem only wiht the Sli then i think that there must be some problem related with the SLi slot of your board. i think that for resolving this type of the problem you will need to try with contactign with the MSI to get the support in this.

    • try with other SLI bridge
    • try with DVI in different slots,
    • HDMI on both cards

    I am having the same exact problem. I have searched forum after forum all day with no help. A lot of people having the same issues. I have tried the latest drivers and the latest beta driver for BF3. When I click apply to enable SLI screen blacks out temporarily and comes back at 800x600 res and I have to reinstall drivers to go back to normal.

    in your case, i will say that the main thing is to test that SLI is working fine with other cards using the same driver or not??
