You have to go into the nvidia control panel (i think) to enable. I don't think windows will pop up with a message.

the first time you boot windows should show the sli capable system, after that not sure. also if you have the win7 wdm drivers they dont seem to be capable of sli, so if you updated through windows than go to guru3d and download, 191.07 as they seem the most stable for me the newer ones seem to have major issues
