Its a GPU problem.
When rendering high image resolution, this normally
happens on all application, which are VideoRam hunger.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Bfg 8600 GTS OC


While BFG used to have a good warranty, they went out of business in late 2010, which makes a replacement under warranty very unlikely.
If you have another PC you can install and test it in, I would try that. But it does rather sound like a graphics card problem to me. Which means a replacement will most likely be needed.
Luckily, you can get a very decent, if not better, card to replace it for less than $100. I would recommend anything in the Fermi graphics card,either 400 GTS or higher, which I have (with or without rebates) in the $100 range. PNY, Gigabyte, or XFX are all brands I have used, they have at least 3 years warranty on them.

I have a dell optiplex 210l, i just recently got a jaton nvidia 8600 low profile x1 pci card, it plugged in perfectly but it gave me a malfunction error on a blue screen, i took it into a computer repair...


The fact that you got a blue screen could either mean that the card is indeed faulty or that the drivers you are using are just out of date. You can download the latest video drivers for your 8600GT at the Nvidia website.

For a list of compatible video cards see my tip below:

I recommend not going for anything above a GeForce GTS 250 in the Nvidia range and a Radeon 5770 in the ATI/AMD range.

To get the full specs of your mainboard go to: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00893006&lc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3401230&dlc=en#N198

This motherboard has 1 PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

You could use:
Geforce 6 series (6800GT)

Geforce 7 series (GeForce 7950, GeForce 7900, GeForce 7800, GeForce 7600 ,
GeForce 7300, GeForce 7200 and GeForce 7100)

Geforce 8 series (GeForce 8800 Ultra, GeForce 8800 GTX, GeForce 8800 GTS, GeForce 8800 GTS 512, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GS, GeForce 8600 GTS, GeForce 8600 GT and GeForce 8500 GT)

Geforce 9 series (GeForce 9800 GX2, GeForce 9800 GTX+, GeForce 9800 GTX, GeForce 9600 GT, GeForce 9600 GSO 512, GeForce 9600 GSO and GeForce 9400 GT

Geforce 200 series (GeForce GTX 295, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce GTX 280, GeForce GTX 275, GeForce GTX 260, GeForce GTS 250 GeForce GTS 240 and GeForce GT 220

Geforce 400 series (GeForce GTX 480, GeForce GTX 470, GeForce GTX 465, GeForce GTX 460, Geforce GTX 450)

With your system however I would recommend nothing greater than a Geforce GTS 250.

Please rate me high.
Thanks.
