Its a GPU problem.
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 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

You can but a molex splitter so that you can plug the single molex you have into it and then have two, like a "Y". You will probably have to go online to a company like www.tigerdirect.com, www.newegg.com, or www.circuitcity.com who sell power supplys. I realize that means waiting a few days but the alternative is to either modify your PSU which voids the warranty or buy a different one. The splitter is inexpensive.

Screen not starting after installing graphics card


Hi rohit1987,

The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running.
If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.

Good luck rohit1987!
Thank you for using fixya.
