How much power does your power supply give? It could be that your power supply cannot take the power of your videocard. They say it is recommended to have at least 700watts of power with that videocard as it consumes a lot of power.

    You can checkhttp://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEn... to check your specifications. I don't know if it is really accurate, but when i checked, using your videocard it only consumes 40+ watts. It could be that your specs are "just about" for your power supply. So, when running at full load it may be just a bit over the required power. You could take off some unused peripherals like the floppy drive, maybe some unused PCI cards or some beautifications. It will save you a few wattage, but maybe thats all you need.

ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe motherboard with no sound


This is a known isue and ASUS is working on a sound driver for the chipset. Keep checking their site for driver updates. The board should all install with Windows 7 except for the sound drivers. Some people say they can install the vista driver and run it in vist or xp compatibility mode. The other thing you can do is pick up a cheap $20 Win 7 compliant sound card till the chipset driver issue is resolved.

No sound in Windows 7


Hi,

Uninstall all the audio drivers and restart the computer. Make sure the audio jack is in the Green audio port.

Let the operating system re-detect the audio and install the drivers for it itself. When its done see if you have any sound.

Post back if this does not work.



Good luck.

Screen not starting after installing graphics card


Hi rohit1987,

The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running.
If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.

Good luck rohit1987!
Thank you for using fixya.

Hello, Problem with 8600 GT egeforce graphics card


Sounds like the card is defective or your power supply is not hefty enough to drive the new card. Also check that the card is seated fully.

Video Problems


Hello!

Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz
