PC can't detect my graphics card (NVidia Geforce 8600GT)


Peak Oil is real!
My PC is no longer detecting my Graphics card... I just ended a game of Counter Strike, shut down the PC for a couple of hours, and when I come back to it, no display. I had to switch to onboard VGA port to get back the display. Checked BIOS... first priority is PCI... No change there... Checked Device Manager... Cannot detect my card.

What should I do now? Get it repaired? Its a 5 year old NVidia 8600GT on my 5 year old PC...

Any recommendations for a new card for such an old PC?

try clearing the BIOS memory by shorting CMOS battery.if that doesn't fix the problem then remove the card from mobo and reconnect it.
