    Anyone have a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT running on Windows 8 ?


    I am running a Sony lapto VGN-AR870 with a 8600M GT . The comp origionally came installed with Vista, and switching over to windwos 7 was fine except for the graphics card. I could not get a driver to work, but finally i got it. Anyone have it running on windows 8? and what driver are you

    I gave my 8600GT to my dad when his video card overheated unexpectedly and died.

    Search for it here using Windows 7 64bit/32bit:
    GeForce Website(compatible with any nVidia graphics card, not just the GeForce ones)
    The 32-bit/64-bit will depend on your WDP version.

    Hi, I had simmilar situation. I bought Win8 and was pretty dissapointed to see that in fact 8600M GT is not supported.
    I had exact same experience with Win7... Late last night I got desperate and searched over my old docs and saw that I used one obsolete NVIDIA driver.
    Version of driver that is working fine with Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 is NVIDIA 179.48 (release or beta, does not matter).

    I hope that it helped.
