After 2 minutes using a nvidia geforce 8600 gt

Ive just got a nvidia geforce 8600 gt and i put it in and installed the latest drivers for it, then i try to go on something and it my screen went black with lots of coloured dots and the mouse cursor has a square white box around it, then my pc freezes, i cant system restore because it does that when i click on a date to system restore, so i uninstalled my nvidia drivers, worked all fine then when i dloaded direct x it started happening again, and i need direct x to play every single one of my games, is there a way to fix this problem?

I need nvidia geforce 8600 gts 256 mb installation cd software and i have windows 7 62 bit. version


No you dont, you just need to go to nvidia.com and download the latest drivers.
You should also check for new drivers every few weeks if you play many games.
You also dont have a 62 bit version of windows, its 32 bit of 64 bit.
You can find your drivers here if you have the 64 bit version of windows http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-258.96-whql-driver.html

Can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm


Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @
