NO YOU JUST NEED TO RESTORE YOUR SYSTEM TO AN EARLIER DATE (BEFORE VISTA GOT UPDATED) GO TO START MENU CLICK ACCESSORIES THEN SYSTEM TOOLS AND THEN SYSTEM RESTORE .. CHOOSE THE CORRECT DATE AND RESTORE

I need nvidia geforce 8600 gts 256 mb installation cd software and i have windows 7 62 bit. version


No you dont, you just need to go to nvidia.com and download the latest drivers.
You should also check for new drivers every few weeks if you play many games.
You also dont have a 62 bit version of windows, its 32 bit of 64 bit.
You can find your drivers here if you have the 64 bit version of windows http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-258.96-whql-driver.html

Gt nvidia 512 ddr3 graphic card not detected by my mother bord


If I were you I'd try to insert another geaphics card in the mobo, if it does detect that one the graphics card is broken, if it doesn't try updating bios.
If that doesn't help either, the mobo has failed.

You can try to contact the manufacturer of the broken art, see if they have any tips, but I guess broken is broken.

Sorry,
Yannick.

Seems like your graphic card is not supported. Its a older version. My first solution would be update your driver for your graphics card: http://driver.wareseeker.com/download/visiontek-radeon-9250-agp-8.072.rar/1e97d07a01 or http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/VISIONTEK_RADEON_9250_AGP/4-172246-1.html

If that doesn't fix it (which I don't think it will), you might just have to buy yourself a better graphics card and/or computer.

Unusual Problem During Update my XFX Geforce 8600GT 1Gig Driver


Well M8, your english is perfect!

Just a fast look on the system of your i would guess that your problem is the 330w psu!

Thats way to low for that gpu-card!
If u can, try another one whit at least 550w! i think that will solve your problem.
If you dont have power enough the computer will freez or/and shut down.

Let me know if that helps!

Good luck to you M8!

Slowing down suddenly when gaming


Hi rajiv2612.
Suggest you check for any software update's from GeForce for you're 8600 GT. Also check for any software patches for the game (s). (Include windows update service as well).
The normal stuff like running windows system defrag & disk cleanup utilities should be run once a month for gamers.
Lastly, if you feel heat may be an issue. Open the PC case & leave opened while playing the game that seems to slow down the most. If the game does not slow down (After checking & updating all of the above), than maybe you need to add a 3" fan to the case, so fresh air blows directly onto the 8600 GT.

Good Luck!
