Folks, I got an Alienware M17x R1 machine. It came with 2 280m SLI GPU'S. I bought 2 5870m's that came out of a M17x R2. They are flashed to the latest dell version.

I took it apart and put the left card on ( the left side if you are facing it open ) and the computer wouldnt even boot, just a black screen.

Took the left card out and put the right in same issue would not boot just a black screen.

Changed sides for both and put them both. Now it boots and when i do a benchmark it crashes.. Because neither of the fans run. Only the CPU fan runs occasionaly.

Now looking at this
and this
it says disabled. So I enable them
( still no fan running ).. Another thing both card have the same IDENTICAL INFO'S?
and
is this alright?

I dont understand MSI Afterburner to much but does this mean both cards are active?
?


Also why Furmark detects only 1 GPU?



Here are the cards.


How to solve this freaking FAN issue. Non of the GPU fans run on a benchmark laptop crashes because temp reaches 100c temp fans dont even make an effort to start.

Please help me. Thanks
