I installed the GeForce 6200 AGP 8x, system is AMD 2400x, 1.8GB RAM; Windows XP Pro with current update; when I try to play mpeg in media player or real player, pc becomes very slow, cpu usage is 100% and I have to reset. in real player video may show up after 20 min or so. Please help
I am having a similar problem with a GeForce 6200 graphics card. I can't even play Warcraft 3, Which only requires an 8mb 3d graphics card. I have a Syntax Motherboard s661m. I can play Civilization 3 but it doesnt even require a graphis card. I found newer drivers for the graphics card and still nothing. It passes all of the tests except one when I run dxdiag. I am going to look for some motherboard drivers and then I am sending this card back to new egg for a different one. Anyone have any other ideas beforeI do that?

Re: Freeze with mpegs
Have you installed the latest direct X9 and have you completely uninstalled the last graphics card driver ad re-started your pc, if you had one previously as this can conflict.
There must be a major driver problem as video's can be played on the most basic of graphics card.
The only other problem may be the NVIDIA chip is not compatible with the motherboard, as i have had this in a number of cases before and had to replace with an ATI chip based card.

If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
