Hi,

I`ve got a 8600GTS. When I power on my PC it starts(but doesn`t shows anything) and after 2 seconds turns off and then automaticly back on and it goes so on. With other graphics cards it works fine.

Any ideas how could I test my card if its burned or not?

Just look for any thing that seams to have broken off. Things that have broken off leave jagged edge in the old solder joint.



This is what you should be looking for.

I`ve managed to boot up the windows with my onboard graphics card, and i can see the 8600GTS in the device manager. Is there a way to test it with some kind of software?

In the device manager appears the following message: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems"

I dont know why, but the windows now starts with the card, only there is no image.
