first,you'll need an extra vidcard. Doesn't matter what it is just as long as it works. Plug it in and boot up.

Uninstall the drivers and reboot. Use DriverCleaner (I run that twice) then reboot again. Then after it boots back up,(when the window pops up asking for drivers,press Cancel/No) install the new drivers (from the .EXE) again and shut down. Install the 8600 once again and boot up. You should be able to get it to work.

I had this exact problem when I got my eVGA 8600GT. Hope that helps.

I would do the following in this order.

1. RESET CMOS ( You never know )
2. Clean the drivers using Driver cleaner and try again with another set of drivers

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
3. Re-install Windows.

Then look into the possibility of dead hardware.

I couldn't have said it better

Also use the older drivers you had before.

Sometimes certain driver sets will have problems with one card iin particular for no reason

Also in this case especially be sure to use official drivers and not tweaked versions.
