Graphics Card Problems

Hello to the All Knowing!

I recently installed a NVidia GeForce 8600 GT graphics card into my system. The reason for doing this is to allow certain games to be played. It was recommended to me by a computer store specialist.

Now my problem is thea even though it is installed I cannot play any of the games that were previously installed or the one game in particular Warhammer: Age of Reckoning. I have checked all my system details from the following link http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest and it says yes you can run it. However nothing happens when I click on any of my game icons, even the ones that did work with my old card.

Please help as I'm pulling my hair out!!!

Thankyou

Lee

Right off hand, I cannot answer this. Check into the video card trouble shooting, by going into the software that came with the card. I would also go into specific forums for your games to see it any one else is having issues. I have a two year old NVidia based card that will not play some of my late 90s' games because of software issues. I had to download patches, and run system commands to get them to work. NVidia in particular has a pretty good following and help is out there.

GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card doesn't work


contact the shop / place you purchased it from and they should be able to give you info of where to send it and what to do - they should have a section on there website where you can go through the return process and you will most likely need to get an RMA number to authorise the return / replacement.

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.
