Graphics card problem

Hello sir ,

I have a nvidia graphics card GE force 6200 (in pci slot).recently i am having a strange problem. as soon as i switch on mycomputer , the display flickers and when i go to my computer the drivesappear as if it is smudged and display is very dull. First i thought itmay be because of my monitor .but when i removed my graphics card , thedisplay becomes normal. and also when i was using my graphics card andwhenever i put my system into standby mode , it would automaticallycome out of standby mode without moving the mouse. Is it somethingrelated to drivers.Do i need to install the latest NVIDIA drivers.

The refresh rate is 60 hz and no other option is available . There is acheck box(hide modes this computer cannot display) below that. If iselect that , then i can select 70 hz and so on upto 100hz. but when iselect anything greater than 70 hz . i get a blank screen and a hzsymbol is shown on the screen. Even if i select 70 hz , the screen isagain blurred and dull and flickers.How do i solve this problem ??

My configuration is as follows:
Intel P4 2.66 ghz
Intel D101GGC motherboard
512 Mb ram
Samsung syncmaster 591s Monitor.

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

Hope this helps you

My nvidia graphics gets heated very soon...while running crysis it normal?

Hi complicatedt,

Yes, it is normal, that's why graphic cards nowadays has it's own cooling fan.
The heating of the cards also depend on the system requirement of a program or game.

Hope this will help you.

Thank you for using FixYa!

We reinstalled Windows and now there is no "Display Adapter" in the device manger listing and the display is not right. I think we are missing a driver for Nvidia GE Force 6200 turbo cache card....

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.

Want to know

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.
