CMOS Settings for PNY GeForce 8600 GT

I have a PNY Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT video card with 512 mb memory. It is a PCI Express 16.

In my CMOS setup, what should the PCI Express voltage and frequency be set too?

I have a MSI K8N Diamond Plus motherboard with a AMD 64 FX-53 processor.

One question, why do you want to change the voltage of the PCI express, have you by any chance overclocked your machine? If not the default values should do fine since the 8600GT is not a power hog.

If you have overclocked then the recommendation is that you try to see if you set the PCI frequency to 100 (default) so that the PCI-e bus does not get overclocked, as its known that some devices fail when the bus is increased (such as the SATA hard disks, etc).

You will also not have to change the voltage of the PCI-E bus unless you have aggressively overclocked your machine.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 fan stopped

The fan is probably stuck possibly because of dust or the fan is broken, you can purchase a cheap heatsink / fan from a retailer, or actually it may be easier and cheaper to just purchase a new videocard, they cost a little bit more than a fan. If you don't need anything better than a GT240.

GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card doesn't work

contact the shop / place you purchased it from and they should be able to give you info of where to send it and what to do - they should have a section on there website where you can go through the return process and you will most likely need to get an RMA number to authorise the return / replacement.

Want to know

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.
