Question about ASUS 512MB nVIDIA GeForce 8600GT DDRD3 PCI Express EN8600GTSILENTHTDP512M PCI Express Graphic Card

Card malfunctioning while playing full-screen games

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT 512MB PCI-E graphics card installed in my computer. I'm currently running Windows XP. When playing full-screen games, the game will freeze and small green rectangles will pop up all over the screen (looks like the matrix over WoW). Sometimes it goes hot pink, too. But most of the time it's the matrix. While web-browsing, playing solitaire, etc. I have no problems. To try and fix this I have already done the following: Tried 3 different monitors. (most recent being an HP w1907) Tried 3 different cables (both VGA and DVI) Downloaded the latest drivers in the past week Other system specs if needed: Pentium Dual-Core CPU 2.50 GHz, 2 GB RAM

    I have not tried older versions. Currently I'm using what the Nvidia support site gives me. I will check on older versions of the drivers and see where that takes me.

    I was not able to get an older version of the drivers that would support my graphics card.

  • Etalone May 18, 2009

    Sometimes it happens right away (within 15 minutes of playing) and sometimes after over an hour of playing. Lately, though, it's been right away. It happens with all full-screen games, but I play World of Warcraft the most.

    It appeared to be a heating problem.

    Does it happen straight away or after playing for a while?

    Is it the same game?

    Have you tried other, older versions of the drivers? Which one(s) are giving your problems?

Try disabling the screen saver and see what happens.

    If that didnt solve it then you should comment on it.

    It could also be a heating problem if you are able to open the case make sure the fan(if it has on ) is correctly spinning.

    Glad to hear it's working now.

If you need a new card for gaming purpose please go for ati 5770 or nvidia 9800 gt as you will get a better gaming performance from both of these as compared to 240gt.

You may also have to upgrade your power supply unit as higher graphics card require more power.

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

I own a Dell Inspiron 531S. I'd like to get a new graphics card. I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I don't want to spend too much for this but I'd like to run my Second Life game with...


When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.

PC Minimum System Recommendations:

* Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL

* Computer Processor: 1.6GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2000+ or better

* Computer Memory: 512MB or better

* Video/Graphics Card**:
o nVidia GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 6600, or better
o OR ATI Radeon 9600, X600, or better

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.

Can asrock m266a support geforce 8600gt


Dear hiran89

Please see the specification of your motherboard at the following link of Asrock. It supports only up to AGP 4x.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=M266A

The 8600GT GPU does not come in AGP setups only PCI-Express. In general even if you were to have this card then the rest of your system would bottleneck the capabilities of the card.

My advice is to buy something more suited to the system you own such as a RADEON RX2600PRO, GEFORCE 7600GT,..but still these may be still more than the system deserves right now.

Saying this the most powerfull graphics card now in AGP are the ones below

GEFORCE 7900GS, 512MB DDR3
ATI HD 3850, 512MB GDDR3

Regarding graphics


Hey bhoot,

Are you asking about what graphic card you should get? If so, I recommend anything that's geforce 7600GT+.

I recommend nVidia because a lot of games are built for nVidia. I'm not saying ATI is bad, they are good. It's just that you'll run into artifact issues (where you see tears in graphics) with some games if you go with ATI.

Go to sites like, www.newegg.com, or www.tigerdirect.com to look for a card.

If you have PCI Express, then go with that. If it's AGP, then go with that. It's all based on what your board supports.

If you're looking to run F.E.A.R, Qauke, or Battlefield, you won't need much. I would recommend at least 128mb video on the card you choose, but if you do have PCI express, I would suggest getting a 512mb video card for future gaming.

the geforce 8600GT is a good buy too. Typicall they are around $140, they have 512mb vid and have GDDR3 memory, (good clock speed on those cards). They can run those games no sweat.

Hope this helps.

(Btw, the geforce8600GT is directx 10 compatible)
