Re: screen not starting after installing graphics card
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!

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.
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
Hey I am also facing same problem.But My card was woorking fie before yesterday. I bought a new CPU cabinet> so had to remove nad reinsert the GFX card and it giving me the same problem as you are facing.... i.e. the fan is moving but screen is blank
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.
