Why was you installing SP1 on Vista?

Try a System Restore back to before you installed SP1.

The only way to pinpoint what's wrong may be by a process of elimination:

1. Make sure the present cable is securely fitted on both ports - the PC & monitor side

2. Try another monitor cable, or another port on the graphics card

3. Do a System Restore to before you installed SP1 (not just uninstalling it)

4. Connect monitor to another working PC

5. Try another graphics card, & try the 8600GT in another working PC.
