GeForce 6200 shuts down and PC reboots

When playing games like Dawn of War, even with graphics settings to lowest levels, the vid card will randomly shut down. Sometimes it happens when the game has been running for 5 minutes, sometimes it can go for better than an hour. What can be done?

    I have the same problem, too. Is not overheating. Too many people with the same problem and anybody can resolve even in the nvidia site? is not the older/newest driver.
    I can't believe ecg15 that changing the drive for all the games can resolve the problem.
    I have a GeForce 6200 AGP 512 Mb RAM DDR2 and works fine en 2D aplications but not in 3D intensives like Google Earth or Supreme Commander game. My machine is a Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz, 2 Gb DDR-SDRAM PC3200 400 Mhz. Intel Extrem Graphics integrated (ICH5) on the motherboard.

First check that overheating is'nt the problem, you can remove the sides of the pc and allow hot air to escape easier, if this cures it you need more fans, while your'e in the pc check for dust blocking fans and vents. Also visit the game makers web site for bug fixes if there are any and also go to graphics card web site ( possible known game issues that you are playing.

Cannot load,

Uninstall any video adapters in the device manager. reboot install your drivers before you install the Vid card, (unless it is integrated) then install your card allow it to search for the drivers. Reboot again and they should go in. Good luck,,, please leave a rating.

Geforce 6200 PCI is not running some games after installation

not sure of the game but pci graphics cards are not for gaming, that pc is a bit old- you need a pci express graphics card to game thses days. Also the 6200 is very weak as a gpu and very old- Nvidia is now in the 10th series of cards. Get a new computer definately with a core 2 duo cpu and at least a nvidia 8500gt grapgics card

I dont think its your graphics card, its possible that its your computer thats not suitable for games all together.

Please follow these steps to ensure that your computer is capable of playing games.

Direct X Diagnostic

  1. Start > Run
  2. dxdiag
  3. click Ok
  4. Check System data. Key Points: Processor and Memory (RAM)
  5. Check Display. Key Points: Memory and Graphics Card type.

If all of this looks fine, then try and update your drivers for the Graphics Card.

Graphics card

Probably more RAM, but 900MB means you must have a 1GB card - that's pretty good. 2GB total should be plenty.
