So using onboard graphics will fix this problem. Have you tried another graphics card with your motherboards?
Check if your 8600gt will work with a Linux variant like Puppy Linux or Ubuntu. Burn the iso files to a disc and boot from it. Remember to specifically use a program that will burn iso files (disc images), like BurnCDCC.
