Question about XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 Graphics Card

1 Answer

Bad colors and snow

After playing games for a few hours my graphics card goes crazy. The colors go bad and then I get snow on the screen. Like interference on a TV screen. I replaced my 8600 gt with and old 6600 and everything is fine. I'm using the latest driver from Nvidia. The card worked fine for 6 months, but not now. Any ideas. The snow appears on everything,eg desktop ect.

Maybe your graphics card is overheating, check the cooling fan over your graphics card and if it has sufficient power plugged into it.

My moniters screwed


Sometimes this is due to graphics cards, but most of the time it is due to drivers. If it does not happen when you are using your PC for other things the problem probably just lies with the graphic card, driver, and this particular game or any game similar. Drivers are the most notorious! Check your requirements on the game for graphics cards recommendations! Let me know!

Graphic card Gforce 7300


in safe mode your "graphics accelerator" doesnt kick in, it runs a slow standard VGA commands. If your card was damaged by usualy overheating or just itself (bad luck, happened to me on 6600gt) it will die either quick or slowly. Slowly means, first "Direct 3D" will show rubbish on screen, the "OpenGL" and later even in windows it displays lines and freezes. After that, you cant even go to BIOS cause if freezes 5 secs after boot. Mine died that way. TRY another card, cheapest u can get or borrow but the same port AGP or PCX, whiever u have. If all is ok, the card is gone. (sounds like it 90%)
