    Ps- 8600m gt 512MB -This card is not supported by 1.19/1.20 BIOS, and the MB had to been modified to even fit that card.

    With bios 1.15 this card works without a problem und does fit without any modifications in that motherboard !
    So i can´t understand that the bios 1.19 is suddenly not compatible with this card ?????????????????
    Now it runs with bios 1.15 great but only with 2gb ram.
    So if there is no solution i l left it so.

    Thanks

    Vista will install/update all 32-bit/64-bit drivers (Windows Update) except for the following:
    note- all the below drivers support both x86/x64 Vista versions

    x1800/x1900 Catalyst Version 8.31.100.2 061108a-038707C (newer than the Alienware Catalyst version which does not support x64)

    Realtek HD Audio (enables HD audio manager features for muting of speakers when headphone jack used, and enables voume knob)

    ISO dvd image creation for default Vista Burner ( not necessary if using 3rd party software such as Nero)
