There are known problems with the GeForce 8600. The best solution I've seen is to boot into recovery mode after installation, log in as root, and run
Code: Select all
envyng -t
. This will install the driver for your card which causes this glitch.

Please stop posting in all caps, it is a written form for screaming and quite disruptive to read.
