Monitor is blank when plugged into Nvidia Geforce 8600GT

I have a Dell Dimension E520 and I have just bought a brand new Nvidia Geforce 8600GT graphics card for it.

I have changed the primary video controller in the BIOS setup to onboard/PEG setting. When i plug my monitor into the graphics card which is installed in the PCI express 16x slot and the screen is completely blank.

I have also tried changing the monitor.

    When plugged into the EVGA e-GeForce 7200 GS nVidia Graphics Card, the monitor remains blank after going through the bios load screen and the basic diagnostics screen (the one where it shows that the hard drive and CD/DVD drives are connected). When the screen should turn to the splash screen (for Windows XP), the monitor remains blank.

    Have also tried uninstalling the integrated Intel G965 Chipset drivers and rebooting with the nVidia card without success.

You don't disable it in Device Manager: reenable it immediately. The correct steps to replace the video card:
1 - you uninstall its driver and reboot at least twice.
2 - You install the new card, plug the Monitor in it and reboot at least once.
3 - you enter in the BIOS and disable it in there, and only in there, and you reboot at least twice with a check in the BIOS that it has remained disabled in between.
3 - you install the new driver.

Series of coloured dashes in patches across the monitor when brow


Going to suggest that you download the latest drivers for your video card also the drivers for the monitor. Problem seems to be in the video card side, since you said you are using a new monitor. Try the new drivers, if it continues after that you might want to try cleaning out the computer or replacing the video card.

What is the exact model Nvidia GeForce card that you have and what brand is it?

Have you tried the card in another PC to test it? That would be the ideal way to confirm it's a card issue.
