Solved: Trouble Installing GeForce 6200 in a Dell

Q: Solved: Trouble Installing GeForce 6200 in a Dell

Hi all,

I recently got a larger monitor and decided to upgrade the graphics card from the integrated graphics that came with this machine.

I uninstalled the old driver and downloaded the new ones. When I installed the 6200, and connect the VGA cable to it, the monitor does not get a signal and goes to sleep. If I try to install the driver without the new card in, the program stops the install because there is no hardware detected.

This is an older machine. It is a Dell I got in Nov, '05...DIM3000 XP home SP3 pentium4 2.8GHz 2gb with an 80 gig hd.

If anyone can help I would be very grateful.



A: Solved: Trouble Installing GeForce 6200 in a Dell


You need to install the video card and start the computer before you can install the driver for it.

You need to go into the BIOS setup and make sure the video adapter is set to match the video card connection type - PCI, AGP, PCI Express, etc.

You need to disable the integrated graphics device in the Device Manager.

Make sure you don't mistakenly connect the monitor to the integrated graphics port instead of the video card port.


You didn't say what the power supply wattage is in that desktop, but I'll assume it's sufficient.

I recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 AGP 256 MB video card in an 8-year old desktop that has a 160 watt power supply.

It even had a very old internet explorer. like 4 or 5. so anyways i have reinstalled my graphics card and now when i switch the monitor to the graphics card, the screen turns half black, and half white. can anybody help me with this problem?

Can you explain the problem in more detail? What exactly do you mean by "when I switch the monitor to
the graphics card"? Also, what exactly do you mean by "I had to reset the computer to factory settings"? (system restore?)

Today I bought a Geforce 6200 graphics card because my computer met all the requirements. When I installed in my computer and turned the power on there was a beeping noise and the computer screen was black. I don't know what I did wrong. My guess is my computer is not compatible or somethings up with the card or dirvers, I really don't know since this is my first time installing a graphics card. The requirements of this graphics card is: petium 4/III/II/celeron, AMD K6/Athlon. An Agp 8x or 4x motherboard. 256mb of memory at least. windows xp. a minimum of 250w power supply.
I have a AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8ghz, an agp slot 3.0, 8x. a 250watt power supply. and windows xp. If you could help me out in any way I'll be very greatful. Thank you for your time.

Power cable out
Push in the on switch (releasing all internal voltage)
Touch the frame of the computer (inside - and don't shuffle your feet -antistatic issue)
Take the card back out
Boot up with original onboard video
Go to system bios
Confirm 1st startup set to AGP
Change the meg to 256
Save and exit
Turn off the computer
Reseat the AGP card (push in securely - goes in a long way)
Put the monitor back to the AGP
Power cable back in
Turn back on

I've been trying to upgrade an old coimputer to run Windows 7, so far it works really great, but the intel graphics are really shitty, so I bought an EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB PCI card to install. problem is, whenever the card is installed the computer won't boot, and is stuck on this screen:

I pulled out the CMOS battery to try to reset it, but no dice.

Hi i am have a Dell dimension 3000 and i have been loooking for a new graphics card for my computer so as to play better computer games such as and namely:

LOTR: battle for middle earth II. :approve:

I have read a quite a few forums on availiable pci cards (My computer does not have agp or pci-e slots)

and so far the 6200 has come out on top.

I have also read that 128-bit is better than 64-bit and that supposedly the 6200 version only comes in 64bit.

but i have found a 6200 with 256mb and 128-bit.

I am wondering if the Jaton GeForce 6200 (PCI, 256MB)

will preform at the top of the range for PCi based on the fact that it is a nvidia 6200 and that it is 128-bit?

Also will it be able to play battle for middle earth II, and is this brand a very shody and not to be trusted brand?

Please if somebody has this card could they please tell me how it preforms?

and anyone who has technical knowledge look at the specs and assess this card?

It would be much appreciated.

can't do a link because its my first post but its product number is VIDEO-338PCI-LP
and the page i'm referring to can be found on under:
Jaton GeForce 6200 (PCI, 256MB)


here are the specs provided:


Device Type: Graphics adapter

Enclosure Type: Plug-in card

Vista Capability: This video card is capable of running the new Aero interface featured in Windows Vista Home Premium and higher.

I just bought a 6200 PCI card, made by EVGA. I plugged it in and booted up my computer, popped the included CD in and installed the video drivers from the CD. I then installed the most recent nVidia drivers for the 6 series. and rebooted my computer. When I finished starting up again, I was at 640 x 400 with 4 bit colors, and it will not let me change the resolution or color quality.

I have been trying to figure this out for damn near 7 hours now. Lots of people have been saying I gotta do something in BIOS, but there is nothing about my video card in BIOS, so I don't know about that.

I'd really like to get this thing working, and I am really hoping that it is something I just forgot to do rather than a faulty card.

I have an Nvidia GeForce 6200 graphics card but dual view does not work.I only have to connect either vga monitor or an s-video cable for watching on tv.I can't use both at the same time.The single view also does not work.My system is a windows xp professional service pack3 32bit with 2gb ram.My motherboard is a Foxconn P4M800P7MA-RS2H(UYHP64700076) with Intel Celeron D processor.I've been using an Nvidia GeForce MX 400 0 before and it worked very well on my system.

The S-Video output will only output a clone of the primary display. I don't believe that the S-Video output can be used as an extended desktop. There are also resolution restrictions for S-Video (640x480...sometimes 800x600).

Dual View is for cards with multiple outputs (ie: VGA or DVI outputs).

A:Solved: PNY GeForce 6200 graphics card installation problem

It looks like you are using an installer utility that comes with the graphics card that is causing a problem.

Let's try installing the driver a different way. Insert the install CD and exit the install utility if it autoruns. Open Device Manager (right click MyComputer, click Manage, click Device Manager). Right click the unknown graphics adapter and click Update Driver or install.

If the hardware update wizard asks to connect to the internet, choose No. Then choose install the software automatically. Windows should find the driver on the CD and install it.

So it's christmas day, and I get a new 8600GT.

I don't know much in BIOS, but what I did find, was selecting either PCI, and PEG, and that didn't help. I know my HDD isn't messed up, because I reinstalled my crappy X300, and everything works fine. Any advice?

Short version:
Any driver I try to install for this- the companies or unnoficial ones- gives me an error.

Very long version:
I order the retail version of said package fo $80 for my Dell Dimension 2400 (POS, I know) that runs WinXP home, and try to install it. It turns out I don't have the power supply for it, so I go buy a 300w PSU for $50. So now, it detects the card- add hardware wizard comes up at startup after I uninstall the integrated graphics driver- but when I select the driver to install for it, it says "no hardware information present" or something similiar (I would give exact error, but I would have to disable integrated video, reboot, go through add hardware wizard, reinstall old drivers, and reboot again). This happened with the driver included on the CD, the latest driver from the company, Omega drivers, and Starfall drivers. All the same thing. If I plug the moniter into the card anyway, it's idle (like what happens when the moniter is turned on and plugged into a shut down computer).

Please... I beg of you people... don't let this $130 I couldn't really afford to spend in the first place go to waste!

Regret if this sounds like an entry-level problem: I've been trying to install a PNY GeForce 5200 graphics card (PCI format) for my son's video game use on my XP system and keep getting a black screen after the Microsoft start-up visuals appear once I reboot. I've double-checked that the card is installed securely in the PCI slot, and connected the monitor to correctly to the VGA plug on the new card, per the instructions, but after rebooting, it always returns to a black screen after the Microsoft graphics intro.

Last night I reattached the monitor to the normal VGA connection and checked out the internet for any info on troubleshooting this installation process, and saw a few remarks from users who had bought the GeForce 5200 on Amazon that the instructions were incomplete and that the existing graphics card has to be disabled or uninstalled before the new card can be properly installed (stands to reason, but the PNY instructions don't provide any directions for the beginner).

If anyone has any experience in installing this type of card sucessfully on their XP system and can offer any simple steps to disable/uninstall the current graphics card, it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, IMsci

That score is about right for a 4 pipe PCI card, not as low as I would expect. I believe that (but someone may know better than I) no video card that isn't at least AGP or PCI-Express will not crack a 3 on the WEI.

On a side note it was a upgrade from a Ge force 5500Fx 128mb which i had no problems with at all.Only real noticeable upgrade was my brother could use 3d stuff on solid words better.

Ive also recently Installed a Pci Soundcard. Ive heard this can seriously degrade performance. Well Thx in advance.

Ive got the error with file Nv4_disp and it says its gotten stuck on a infinite loop.

Hello there, just got done installing the Win7 Beta and updating all of my drivers.

There's one that's still giving me troubles though; my graphics card. I've got an XFX GeForce 6200 512MB AGP 8x. This is the second time I've had an issue with this card. I powered off my system, plugged the card in, and rebooted. I didn't touch anything in the BIOS, as my old Radeon 9250 worked fine before.
I log on to Windows, and I get the 'Installing Device Driver' or whatever popup. It runs, installs, says everything is fine, but I need to restart for it to take effect, so I do. I get back into Windows, expecting some Aero windows to greet me, but no. In Device Manager, I have the little yellow /!\. It says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

This also happened in Windows Vista Ultimate SP1.

The rest of my system:
Intel P4 3.2GHz with HT
Asus P4P800-VM Motherboard
1.5GB Corsair ValueSelect RAM

Please help! I'm willing to do anything to this machine, like I said, it's a brand new install so I've got nothing important on it.

Hi, Ezcal, and welcome to the forums.

You are probably getting a conflict from the old ATI drivers. Use - Downloads - 1.5.5 - Driver Sweeper to remove the old ATI drivers.

See - Driver Sweeper for instructions on how to use - I *highly* recommend using the app in Safe Mode.

Well i've had this video card for about 10 months, recently my Steam launcher has been telling me my drivers are out of date. I have also been working on my computer to try to fix a few quirks, in the process i had the brilliant i dea to go on a hunt for new drivers. The Nvidia site told me to go to Add/Remove hardware and remove the old drivers, so i did, when i try to reinstall the new drivers nothing happens...i click on the .exe i downloaded straight from the site but it does NOTHING. I would really appreciate it if someone could lend a hand.

Right now I'm running off my onboard card and its a huge pain, is there anything i can do?

Check for overheating.

Also check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

If it`s a cheap generic psu. It won`t be capable of putting out anywhere near it`s rated output. Even a good quality psu will only achieve around 70% efficiency.

Look at this psu wattage calculator HERE

Hi guys..
Got this card recently.. I have a Intel P4 3.0 GHz and 1 GB of Ram.. I recently also updated my SMPS to 440W..
The problem is when the card is "ON".. Windows XP freezes halfway when its loading.. I read many forums but not many ppl have the same issues.. Most of em suggested to reload `ol drivers.. I've tried the latest one 178.24, 175.19 and 81.95.. Still the same problem occurs.. The best part is the comp only works in Safe Mode with good graphics.. Thats really sad..
Waiting for some "Good" help plz.. Im pissed with this problem.. Btw ive not done any settings in my BIOS.. so if thats to be done then plz do let me know..
Thanks & Cheers..

A:Nvidia geforce 6200

Well, if the card works fine in safe mode and not during a normal session than I would say it's most definitely a driver issue. Here's what I would try...

Boot into safe mode with card installed... make sure it's seated properly
Run Driver Cleaner Pro (download from Guru3D) to remove old drivers
**You may want to consider reinstalling/updating chipset drivers too**
Go into Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the driver entries from there (clean up)
Restart the computer; boot into Safe Mode again
Reinstall the latest drivers for the video card **after chipset drivers if you chose to update!!**
Restart the computer again; see if it boots normally

If the video card still doesn't work, you might have to update directX or download some Windows updates. I'd say if nothing works after that point, ask for an RMA... might be faulty vRAM or something.

Hi there.

I am having serious problems with my Geforce 6200 and I wondered if anyone knew the best thing I could do to get it to work. I am on a dell dimension 2400 and using an inbuilt intel extremegraphics card. On installing my new graphics card, the windows loading screen comes up, and then the screen goes blank. The card only seems to work without its drivers, and even then it is using an incredily low resolution and looks bizarre on the screen. How can I make it work? not even the most recent drivers have rectified this problem. It would be preferable if i didn't have to reformat. Thanks for any help you might have for me

Windows 7 has been randomly locking up on me and I think it's an issue with the GeForce 6200 AGP 8x that I installed. I've noticed quite a few problems using the 6200 but not a definitive solution. I'm running the latest drivers from NVidia, 195.62. Has anyone had luck smoothing the problems out? The locks occur at random times during random events, surfing the web, playing solitaire or Kuma, opening Outlook, etc., and I have to hit the reset button or drop the power to get the system up and running again. Windows doesn't show any errors in the Event Viewer for the lock ups, only afterwards saying the system didn't shutdown properly.

I've attached the system info if that helps.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to seven forums genoDillon. Unfortunately this is one of those situations that the age of your system hasn't kept up with the operating systems. The only thing you can do is go to the Abit site and make sure you have the latest bios.05/07/06 for XP and chipset drivers 05/26/05 XP. And install them in compatibility mode Compatibility Mode And hope that the 195.62 driver will work. Try the solution in this thread post #2 GeForce 6200 512MB AGP 8X running Windows Aero.

This is my first post, so I hope I don't inadvertently break any rules. I've search the forums, but don't quite find this weird problem. I have WinXP Professional SP2 Celeron 2.8 GHz, 1 ¼ Gb RAM , and a newly installed ( by me ) Sparkle GeForce 6200 128 Mb PCI graphic card.
For Xmas I got a new 300 GB HD, and a new LCD monitor, plus the graphics card. I installed it and the monitor on my old 40 Gb hard drive, and it worked like a charm with the latest driver from nVidia, I got the display on start-up, all was fine, except most games run too slow, stuttering, or sound warbles. I then had a friend ( a techie ) partition and new install WinXP on the new HD, added all new drivers, but can't get the new monitor to recognize the graphic card! On the old HD, which I'm still using, in the device manager it shows both the on-board graphic chipset ( disabled ) and the new card as options for a plug-and-play monitor, but on the new HD it shows the 6200 only for a Standard Monitor, and I can't change the color setting or anything, it stays at the lowest settings there are. I was hoping a new install would speed things up, but NOOOoooo. Why would everything work fine on my old drive, and not the new one? I tried re.installing SP2, same thing. Re-format and try the new install again? My techie friend is also no help, so I turn to you
for some kindly assistance. Oh, power supply is 210 watts, also. Thanks, Marqoz

I just built my own computer afte going crazy for a few years with the Dell Optiplex Gx110, and now have decided to upgrade my S3 UniChrome integrated graphics with something better for playing modern games. I am looking at a 128mb. 64-Bit EVGA e-GeForce 6200 agp 8x, and a 256mb ATI Radeon 9600xt (or tx?) agp 8x. Each have their own advantages and disadvantages, but I am wondering which is better. I play mainly games like The Sims 2 kind of games as well as Action RPG's (like Oblivion, but less demanding). Which is better suited for me? Here are my computer specs. straight from the DirectX Diagnostic Tool:

Intel(R) Celeron(R) :dead: CPU 2.66 Ghz
224 MB. Ram (next on my list to upgrade)
DirectX 8.1 (will be upgraded to 9.0 by the time anyone reads this)
Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600)

A:e-GeForce 6200 vs. ATI Radeon 9600xt

Out of those two, the 9600XT is WAY better. But, if you like to play modern games, I`m afraid you`ll need better CPU and GPU. The 9600XT isn`t very good for Oblivion.

You need at least a Geforce 6600 GT for that game, and of course a good CPU (Athlon 64, P4) to run Oblivion. Very demanding game.....

You can't get rid of DX10, but you can install DX9 from here
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

Your card is an entry level card for DX10, so it will work with DX10, but probably won't play too many of the newer games, if any. It is basically to give you access to the Vista Aero component.

Hi all,

having problems with my GeForce 6200 graphics card. In device manager under display adapter it an exclamation mark appears, when i click on the properties option a message stating this device has not started and a code 10 error appears.

How can I fix this problem? I have tried uninstalling, installing, disabling, enabling, updating the driver.


A:GeForce 6200 code 10 error

Have you got your Mainboard ChipSet Drivers Installed

Try This
Open this app.and click on Clean the Registry

The other thing to try is to simply uninstall the drivers, reboot and let Windows use the basic built-in graphics driver. If the error still occurs then it may be a BIOS setting or even cabling or the way the card is seated that's the issue.


Select the Driver tab, click Update Driver, then select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and manually select the correct driver.

Make sure you have completely uninstalled the previous driver first..

Hi all, my first post on this forum

I have just installed Windows 7 on my PC who have a Geforce Turbocache 6200 (128 meg / PCI-E)

And aero don't seems to work. When i launch an evaluation test, i says "Could not measure video playback".

I have the latests drivers from Nvidia, (191.07).

Also, in dxdiag, neither Directdraw or AGP are enabled.

Any help are welcome

Thanks !

A:Geforce 6200 Turbocache - No aero

Right click desktop, choose personalize. Near the bottom should be a link to troubleshoot Aero. If not, choose an Aero theme if you can.

AGP texture acceleration should be disabled for you since you are running a PCI-e card.

Otherwise, does device manager show any errors for the card or does it say it is running well?

When the computer is starting up, before getting to Windows, press F8 a few times and then select "Last Known Good Configuration" to see if that helps or not. Another thing you can try is when pressing F8, using the Windows Recovery Environment to perform a System Restore.

I have a Gateway FX6840. It has an ATI Radeon HD 5700. I had two monitors going just fine. I can run WoW with most of the graphics options turned all the way up and I still get 60 fps. I had a third monitor so I decided to put it to use. I went out and grabbed my NVIDIA GeForce 6200 and tossed it in my PCI slot. I plugged in my third monitor, and it works. The issue is that whenever I utilize my new video card, my frame rates get destroyed. With my third monitor going, my frame rate on WoW drops below 30 and has trouble staying above 15. If my third monitor is completely idle then my frame rate is fine. Only if I have a program running on that monitor are there any issues. Also, whenever I log into my computer with three monitors on it takes forever. When I first turned on the third monitor, all three screens went black and it took forever for them to come back. I already tried updating all of my video card drivers. I'm guessing it has something to do with the driver.

Any help would really be appreciated.

A:Issues with NVIDIA GeForce 6200

Lol, this is obvious. Your GeForce 6200 is just rubbish at gaming. That why this is happening. If you would like to have 3 monitors, and can't use your current video card to power all 3, your best bet is to just buy a new video card.

Alright, I have an older work system that I bought the above graphics card for. The system works perfectly before the card. When I install the card in the case the system boots. Once I install the driver, Windows locks at the Starting Windows screen (black with Windows Logo). Safemode boots so I can delete the driver. I can then get back into windows. Ive installed the driver from the disc etc and still nothing. I'm at a loss. I can't find any section of my BIOS to disable the onboard. When I disable the Onboard VGA and reboot, the AGP now doesn't work but the onboard still does. This could be the issue. I noticed there is not 2 VGA adapters listed when I have the AGP card in and the onboard working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I may just go back to XP.

Can anyone tell me if my GeForce 6200 graphics card would be compatible with this new set up?

You are probably using an AGP graphics card now and the new motherboard supports PCI-e graphics cards so if that's correct then no, it is not compatible with the new motherboard.

I recently upgraded my video card from a crap nvidia to a geforce 6200 (not amazing, but cost effective ever since then, my computer has not been able to consistently resume from hibernation. This first started happening with an XP install, but I have recently updated to Vista Business Edition. I am pretty sure that it is not the operating system because I had the same symptoms with XP and Vista.

I have tried using 3rd party hibernation utilities, I have deleted and recreated the hibernate file, I have messed with the ACPI and various power settings in the BIOS, all to no avail. The system will boot past the loading screen, but when it gets to the login screen all I see is a black screen. The computer is still running, but I can't see anything. This happens until I reboot and delete the hibernation information.

The weird thing is is that if I hibernate it and resume it within 10 seconds, it comes back up fine - any longer and no beans. I have the latest nvidia Vista drivers and have updated about every other driver on the computer. My mobo is MSI K8mmv, 1 GB Corsair mem, 2 Seagate SATA HDDs, 2 IDE CD/DVD drives and a piece of crap network card I got from my grandma.

Sorry for the long post - any suggestions?

A:Problem with hibernation, geforce 6200

I realize that my vid card ain't very good - I didn't really want to sink a whole lot of money into my old socket 754 AMD mobo! Anyway, the hibernation would not work when vista/XP was first installed, so I would assume that uninstalling the current drivers would take it back to those. Is there some kind of a diagnostic I could run on it? What exactly do the ACPI settings do?

Tonight i bought a new graphics card, a nvidia geforce 6200 PCI for my highly useless dell dimension 3000. The card was recommeneded by many as the best card for my situation, now that i have the card installed im stuck. The carrd went in fine, and after slight trouble at the start with the new plugging in of my cable to monitor, i thought i had it ready to install - software side. I started windows (which was low resolution) and put in my cd, followed the instructions to install the drivers. It told me i needed to uninstall my current driver for my intel extreme graphics 2 from add remove programmes, which i did easily. Went back into the installer and went throught the process again. It finished with no visible errors but when i restarted my pc after the windows xp logo all i get is a black screen??? its nothing to do with hardware i dont think as it shows my bios screen and the windows logo. In the manual for my graphics card it says i need too disable my onboard graphics. Would this be causing the problems and, if so how can i go about disabling the onboard graphics on my dimension 3000? i know you guys are great here so any help would be appreciated as i use that pc for important business.

Hi. Show us your device manager with display adapters and system devices maximized please. You can type "device manager" and "snip" for those apps in the start menu search box. Hit enter after each.

There is a later driver from NVidia's site but that won't help you much if your problem is what I suspect. Good to download that for now anyway.

You can attach screenshots to your post using the paperclip.

Please fill out your system specs on here because that will be very helpful to diagnosing and repairing the problem.

If I move the memory or core at all Ill crash in 3dmark01. Others have had this problem and the 76.44 nvidea driver has worked for them. I just tried it and it didn't work for me. Does anyone know a proper driver or better program than riva tuner I can use to oc my card? I only have pci slots btw. Yeah I know I can get a new mobo n card n all that. I know you can clock this card, I followed the steps, I must be having the same problem a lot of other people are having. Or heck if anyone knows how to unlock the other 4 pipelines that would be nice. But the only thing close to being able to unlock this card that Iv read is a theory on flashing the bios, which I have no idea how to do, but will do If told how and its not to hard or dangerous. Out of the 4-5 hours I spent reading forums only 2 sources said its possible. Neither told exactly how 1 was wikipedia and the other was a 2 yr old post.

I just upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and cannot get my graphics card drivers to load properly. I'm getting the same "Code 43" error everyone else I've read about seems to be getting. I've also tried every fix I've read about but to no avail.

Is there any final solution for this. The Windows 7 Compatibility website shows that my graphics card is fully compatible, but I cannot get the full power out of it. I think it's just running in standard VGA Mode.

System Specs:
Board - ASRock 4CoreDual-Sata2 R2.0
Chip - Intel Dual Core 2.50Ghz
Graphics Card - XFX Nvidia Geforce 6200 512Mb 64-Bit
RAM - 2Gb DDR2 PC2 5300

I've checked ASRocks website for drivers but there's none available. I've run multiple driver versions direct from Nvidia but none work. I've used the "stock" driver that Windows 7 uses if I "delete" the card from the system and re-enable it and that doesn't work either.

This setup worked perfectly on WinXP 32-Bit when I had it. But since I upgraded to Win7 64-Bit I can't get the graphics card to work for the life of me. Can someone please point me in the right direction to correct this?

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 Video card that I recently did a driver upgrade on. The driver version is Dated 10-14-07.

I just did a PC Pitstop Performance check and the results show LOW video performance of 14.42MPS. This SUCKS!

A similar test run just (2) weeks ago showed 93 MPS. I'm pretty sure that was with the old driver.

Why would a new driver KILL the video performance ????

Everything else works fine, but when it comes to playing videos in (i believe) any format, the computer will slow way down (the computer is so slow I can't really keep track of cpu usage - I'm guessing 90-100%), and when I press ctrl-alt-del, then hit cancel, the problem disappears . However, youtube videos work just fine (wtf?).

Okay, so before I'm told to uninstall, use, and reinstall, I'd like to try any other possible solutions. I'm uneasy to obtain's software because you have to pay for it. I have a pet peeve when it comes to providing personal (financial) information online, so right now, I'm not diggin' it. Is there another driver cleaner program I can use that I can download for free, and that works just as good? Is using that driver cleaner the best way to reinstall?

WD 200gb caviar 7200 SATA

HD is OK, ran lots of diagnostic stuff. RAM's ok too, everything is fine.
I'm running winXP pro with all updated drivers, DirectX 9.0c and etc, everything runs ok but WoW...

What happens is that a minute after I log, wow starts to alt+tab to windows, and then alt+tabs back to wow, then back to windows and back to wow and so on.... This is driving me mad!!
Everything gets stuck...

I can manage to close wow and stop the alt+tabbing but thats in a right time when it gets back to the desktop and I have like 3 seconds to right click wow and close it.

After that, if I dont restart my computer, I can't play any other games. If I try to get back to wow again, it will freeze and restart my computer... with no BSODs, just freezes and bam, restart.

The attachment is the only error in the event viewer I can find so I *think* its the thing when I try to run wow a second time after it alt+tabbed to hell.

Any insights? I know this GPU is crap, it has only 64mb and takes the other 192 from my RAM, anyways, it should work. My old system has a geforce2 64mb mx400 and it can run WoW with no problem

I'll try running 3DMark to see if it locks my computer or something, and will try to induce that restart again to see if it generates any other event error and post it here.

Hello; I've done some searching and experimenting, and at the moment I'm at a loss.

I've recently (a few hours ago) installed Windows 7 on my computer, at the same time as installing a new master HD. Most of the system came back up fine, with the exception of my second monitor/nVidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache card. In Device Manager, it displays with a yellow exclamation point; I've tried updating the driver through Device Manager both by using the default "update driver" option and allowing Windows to select it, and by manually installing three separate drivers (190.38, 191.07, and 96.85, which was suggested in another thread here). None of these have worked. Similarly, when attempting to run Windows Update, the optional update "nVidia - Display - NVIDIA GeForce6200 TurboCache(TM)" shows up as available, but fails to install each time I attempt it.

Given that I did have the case open for some time while installing the new HD and clearing out the dust, I'm entertaining both hardware and software/driver suggestions. I've run out of ideas for today and would be very glad to hear anyone else's suggestions. Thank you very much.

Trying to build a Home Theater PC on a budget, this video card had no problems on another mobo and to preface this post this mobo has been in storage for 5 years. Anyhow, I started with Windows XP Home edition and the graphics card worked wonderfully and I was able to stream live tv on this motherboard and everything worked great. I then went on to install windows 7 Home Premium so that I could use the Windows Media Center interface and that is when everything went to crap. After the install I went and found the most updated driver for the nvidia 6200 which is versioin 260 (the microsoft website recommends version 256) I tried both because neither seemed to work. I have black horizontal lines across the bottom of the screen in some screens like when windows asks me a question I have to move the mouse aross the yes and no buttons in order to see them. On the home screen the bottom half of the screen has pixelated horizontal lines. During startup the lines are worse. I have tried this on two different monitors producing the same results. When I go into the Nvidia control panel I only have two options for my resolution which I also though very strange, 800x600 and 1024x800. This was not the case on a different motherboard that I worked with. I have seated and reseated the graphics card several times and don't know what to do with it at this point.

Well this is a very long story... lol I got this card nVIDIA GeForce 6200

Now when I got the card I put it in the pci slot & turned it on with Vga connected to it. The resolution was low as always with a new card. Keep in mind I have an onboard graphics card too. Now I went to install new drivers. When I finally got them installed on the boot up screen including windows boot up there were blue dots on the screen. (This wasnt happening before drivers). So I thought it might have been the drivers. To keep a long story short, I "uninstalled" the drivers. They werent completely gone somehow as card still had good resolution, then I got drivers from JATON's website, then after reboot the dots were red & green & in a diffrent pattern. Now ill try to uninstall drivers with a driver clean up tool, then add drivers from website again. My friend tells me the card may be damaged. He said a pixelpipeline may be damaged. I dont know. Well, any thoughts? Can somebody help me try to get the card working? Btw do you think this is a software or hardware problem? As in drivers or card? lol.
