My Nvidia 8600 GS graphic card shows scrambled symbols and blue stripes on screen.

I have tried updating the driver, re-installing drivers and upgrading windows. I have an Intel graphic card that works on stamina option and the screen looks just fine while in that mode. Once I connected my laptop to an LCD via a VGA cable and the screen was restored to normal, but after a while the blue screen showed up and the letters became scrambled and the blue vertical stripes showed up again. People on the net say it's because of BIOS corruption and that I should connect some pins on the graphic card or mother board. I'd rather avoid that.

I've heard this card will support dual monitors but might need a firmware upgrade to do so. You can get the new BIOS here; http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/VGA/BIOS_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=BIOS&FileID=12292 Hope this helps. Let me know. Dudester

SOURCE: onboard graphic (vga) chip problem

You never said that you ininstalled the drivers for the cards. Try this:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.


Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard

The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.

SOURCE: Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work

This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.

This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.

Hello bsod often means you have a driver problem, or a graphic card problem.
The graphic card could have a defect, this can cause the blue screen.

Try also to check the device manager, for any other drivers missing.

Try first to download and install the newest driver from nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-win7-winvista-64bit-314.07-whql-driver.html

This is the 64 bit driver.

The 32 bit is here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-win7-winvista-32bit-314.07-whql-driver.html

If i am wrong by my selection, choose another here:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Or use Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products, by installing a small bit of software.

If the driver update does not help, the graphic card must be renewed.

My advice is to uninstall ALL the old nvidia software, before you install the new.

Are the onboard graphic nvidia ???

This can sometimes create a conflict, when the graphic card brand are the same.
Try to disable the onboard graphic, in the device manager.

Good luck

Roll back the drivers to the original that worked and leave it there. Some times an update acts more like a downdate and screws things up. If your getting blue screens, its a hardware failure and is most likely do to the drivers just not being compatible with your system config.

You could also try updating the BIOS on the mainboard and see if that improves it.

I had alot of issues with ATI's catalyst on my last computer. the program kept causing problems so i removed catalyst and installed just the drivers and it worked great after that.

Installation problem with vista


Do you have an onboard graphic slot too . you could remove the XFX card for now . Install all other drivers on Vista first and then try your card again. Just try and single out the problem. Does the driver cd come with vista drivers ???
