RE: Can't install Nvidia GeForce 8600GTS
I have the same motherboard and a 8600gt and had the same problem, the
motherboard is not recognizeing the video card. you have to flash the bios to
the newest version bios. instructions on how to do this should be in the
manual that came with the motherboard. I used the utility that came on the
support disk, flashed bios, it reset and found the card came up as standard
vga adapter, then just load in your drivers it should work then. A special
thanks to Ching for helping me with this when I had this problem. go to Asus
website and you can find info about the bios version updates for the
motherboard prior to doing anything first. It fixed mine and is running fine
now with windows Vista Home Premiuim x64. hope this helps.
