Question about Nvidia GeForce2 MX (32 MB) Graphic Card

Problem with image display on monitor

Hello I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 installed in my computer and I had it since year 2002 which will make it a little more than six (6) years that I have it now. What I meant by, "Problem with image display on monitor" is that the screen resolution always resizing every time I start up or restart the computer, the display acts abnormally at times meaning there are waves passing through the image display at times like when you're receiving a text message on your cellular phone and it's close to your monitor, the scroll bar on any window at times moves for itself very quickly up and down and the clock in the notification area of the desktop at times shows the wrong time. The Video card has 64MB of video memory and I'm not sure if it could support 1024x768 resolution (19 inch monitor). I'm quite anxious to get a new video card so I can play more games on my computer, to have a better graphical experience and probably it'll help with over all system performance. I'm looking for a video card with 256MB and up of video memory, AGP (4x) bus standard, 15 Pin VGA interface, and supports 1024x768 resolution fully, and would work with a 250 Watt power supply. Manufacturer and chipset doesn't matter what matters is that it's better than the one I currently have. Can you help me with my current problem and help me source a video card of those specifications please? Thank you in advance!

    Hello good day to you p1agu3. I’m very thankful and appreciative of your help and resourcefulness and yes I have a CRT monitor. I think the reason why I get waves in the display image and the screen resolution at times resizes for itself after booting up and restarting and the scroll bar on any window moves for itself very quickly up and down and the time in the notification area on the task bar shows the wrong time at times is because of the DirectX 9 I installed some years ago but I stopped updating the DirectX. I remember reading on Microsoft web site that DirectX 9 can make Windows XP unstable and probably since the NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 cannot support DirectX 9 that’s why I’m having these problems. I’m not sure just guessing here but it could be possible.

    By any chance would you know what would cause your mouse to stop responding after a minute or two (2) of sit back thinking? The desktop is still accessible with the keyboard when that happens well that means the computer isn’t freezing it’s just that the mouse refuses to respond. Do you think it’s the mouse connector or the mouse itself or the age of the computer or corrupted system files or insufficient memory (RAM) or your memory needs physical cleaning or the DirectX 9 upgrade? I asked three (3) technicians one told me that he gets the same problem and said that it’s the connector. Another told me that it could be age or the mouse itself. I can’t remember if any said it could be memory (RAM) or corrupted system files and so on as mentioned above. My system initially had 256 MB of DDR RAM and not too long now I upgraded to 512 but the mistake I made was that I forgot to keep taps on the mouse problem before I sent my computer to get checked out but since it came back after a format and reload I haven’t had any mouse problem as I would. So I really don’t know if the upgrade to 512 MB solved the mouse problem or the format and reload. How unfortunate!

    As you can see I’m not an amateur when it comes to computers. I’m probably between beginner and amateur but most likely closer to beginner. Well you have to start somewhere right? Can’t expect to know things off the bat!

    Oh one more thing you wouldn’t know the power supply requirements of the PNY VCG62256AEB GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card? Thank you in advance!

    Thank you again p1agu3.

    Take good care and enjoy your day.

That should fit the bill you're asking for. However, your current video card should definitely support 1024x768 fully, even at high hz refresh rates (assuming you are using a CRT). The "waves" may be caused by your video card, but it's really hard to say.

If you have more money, I would recommend this card, as it has a higher price/performance ratio:

That is probably going to be the last high-performance AGP card ever produced, as the AGP bus has been discontinued now for some time. You may need a higher-end Power Supply, however. Good luck!
