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.

    Hi rohit1987, from time to time when you add a new device (In your case a new video card), at boot up the cmos may want you to enter the bios. (Even though everything is at default setting).

    The bios saw the new graphics card. This doesn't always happen for everyone. In such cases you can try clearing the bios jumper, wait ten seconds & move the bios jumper back to normal. At boot up enter your bios & re-check all your settings. Save & exit. This should stop the request to enter bios at every boot-up. Below is the link to Asus. Once the link is opened, type your model number in their search window, P5LD2-VM located in the upper right hand corner & click on the white arrow;

    Another window will open. From the list of MB's click on;

    P5LD2-VM related files for download. Another window will open & here you'll click the dropdown menu & choose your operating system. There is a ton of information & FAQ's listed on Asus web site.

    Thank you for your vote rohit1987!

XFX 8600 gt not displaying on bootup

can't say for sure but I would believe it would have to be with your power supply, you might not be getting enough power out to run the card. Try putting in a different power supply and see if that works.

Screen all hazzy letters hard to read

Pull out the graphics card & RAM chips. Give their contact points a good cleaning and replace hem. Also check to see that all cables are snug tight. Finally remove the Monitor cord fro its slot at the back of the CPU and remove all dust and check if any pins are loose. See that the monitor plug is firmly placed..................sodeep

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 ???

Remove the graphic card from the board, at the top of the fan of your graphic card there is a sticker remove it slowly, then put a small amount of oil (the finner oil for machine) in it, turn the fan so that oil may goes to the bearings.

Return the sticker, and install the graphic card on the board.
