I have a nvidia graphics card GE force 6200. recently i am having a strange problem. as soon as i switch on my computer , the display flickers and when i go to my computer the drives appear as if it is smudged and display is very dull. First i thought it may be because of my monitor .but when i removed my graphics card , the display becomes normal. and also when i was using my graphics card and whenever i put my system into standby mode , it would automatically come out of standby mode without moving the mouse. Is it something related to drivers.Do i need to install the latest NVIDIA drivers.
My configuration is as follows: Intel P4 2.66 ghz Intel D101GGC motherboard 512 Mb ram Samsung syncmaster 591s Monitor.

Please check if you have an onboard display card and the NVDIA GEforce card, this situation can hapen when you connect your monitor to the onboard card instead of the NVidia card and try to install the driver for NVIDIA card.
Connect it back to the NVIDIA display card and once again install the downloaded driver, it should identify the device and install fine.
sounds like yo had the same Probles that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the montior cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is runing with your card you can also see that fron the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped
I looked up your Monitors specefications to try to confirm my theory. Which is that this is a resolution problem. Your Monitor is rated for a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 at 68 Mhz so this is the max that your Video card can drive this at. However with a CRT Monitor running them at their MAX for extended periods of time can lead to the fuzzyness your talking about. Its likely that when you switched it to the On board or secondary videocard that it defaulted to the standard SVGA display levels of 800 x 600 resolution. Allowing the Video card to increase the refresh rate to 85Mhz.
Which coincidentally is what the Samsung recommends as the optimum setting for this monitor so I believe if you scale down to 800 X 600 @ 85Mhz I think this will clear up your problem. Though if your like me you like to maximize your screen real estate as much as possible.
There are alot of monitors in the market for around $100 USD that have "Native" resolutions of around 1280 X 1024 @ 75Mhz
i have found that some boards don't like Nvidia graphics cards and play up when it comes to a particular graphical attempt.
You can try the game and card on lower settings, but that defeats the purpose of the card, and make sure you have the latest directx (9C i think) installed
You can try as i did some older graphic card drivers for your model as Nvidia now seem to make generic force drivers for all models.
I had luck with different drivers for a while, but ended up buying an ATI graphics card and as of yet after a year had no graphic problems.
