Hi! you don't need to update the driver cause the problem is in your hardware. Graphic seems to be a bit grounded, try cleaning the contact pins of your AGP graphic card with eraser, clean it side by side and then put it back again to an AGP slot, then boot your CPU again. If it still the same, try it in another motherboard that support you graphic card just to be sure before we conclude that its the graphic card has the problem. Anyway if it still under warranty you can claim for a replacement to the store where you bought the graphic card.  Have a nice day!

From what your saying, is that you power supply is not giving the grahic card enough power! Try going and buying a more powerfull power supply, at least 400w output power, if that dosent work, there is a problem with the graphic card and you should try and get a refund.

I recently bought a Nvidia GeForce 6200 256Mb AGP card to replace a 5200 card so my daughter can run her school assistance programs. its my old computer and I never had any problems with the old card...


Sounds like a Driver Conflict.
Still have the old 5200 drivers in there?

Did you install the drivers for the 6200, BEFORE you physically put the graphics card in? (Not shouting)

Let's say you did remove the 5200 drivers, before you installed the 6200 graphics card.

BUT,
If you physically install the 6200 graphics card, BEFORE you have installed the drivers, Windows 'sees' a new device, and hurries up to match one of it's generic drivers.
(Windows has thousands of drivers!)

Now you come along, and install THE drivers for the 6200. Windows has a drivers conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These, or THESE?"

Makes for a garbled graphics display as you've described.

If the above is true, start over.
Go to Add/Remove Programs, and Remove the Nvidia software. All of it that has Nvidia next to it.
(THIS, is provided of course, that the computer HAS Integrated Graphics, and does not just use a graphics card. You will be plugging the monitor, into the VGA port in the I/O area, on the back of the computer temporarily, if this is true, and this computer has Integrated Graphics)

(Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs) If there is more than one Nvidia program listed, Do No restart the computer each time you remove one. Do Not restart. Read on)

After all Nvidia software has been removed, close Add/Remove Programs, close Control Panel, and return to the desktop screen.
Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 5 seconds. (Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005) Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Open the case. TOUCH the metal frame of the case to relieve your body of Static electricity. Remove the 6200 card. Plug the monitor into the back of the computer into the VGA port. Leave the case open, you'll be going back in there.

Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn it on. After Windows has fully loaded, install the GeForce 6200 drivers from that CD disk. Do Not restart.
Shut down normally.

Unplug from power. Touch that metal frame again. Install the GeForce 6200 card. Close the case. Plug the monitor into the GeForce 6200. (You did plug the monitor into the 6200 the first time, right, and not the VGA port?)

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Go to Start>Nvidia>Nvidia control panel, and set the settings.

Hello again, i have managed to get the drivers for my radeon x1650 pro 512mb installed and removed the old drivers for my other graphics card, the computer restarted so the installation could take effect...


One of two things I 'see'.

1.Not to insult you, but do you have the monitor plugged into the graphics card? Hey! I've had people do it! They plugged the monitor back into the motherboard VGA port. (If you don't have a DVI connector on your monitor cable, there is an adapter you can buy. VGA to DVI. Make sure you get the Female VGA to Male DVI version)

2.You have a driver conflict. Even after you removed the old drivers, there are still drivers giving you a hassle. The drivers CD for your ATI needs to be installed first. Load the software, shut the computer down, unplug it from the surge protector, THEN install the ATI graphics card.

If you install a graphics card first, before installing the software for it, Windows will recognize that a new device has been installed, and try to match up it's generic drivers.
Then Windows goes 'crazy' trying to decide which drivers it should use.

Hi i have just bought a new radeon x1650 pro 512mb graphics card and ive removed the drivers from my last graphics card and placed the new radeon into my computer. but when i turn it all on to install the...


When the card is properly installed and the system properly configured, you should at least be getting the POST screen, since that is not driver dependent. And Windows knows to go to the default standard VGA driver when it can't find specific drivers for a card. So we're looking at a hardware issue, not software.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I would take. Some would seem obvious and you've probably already tried them, but I like to be complete:

Is the monitor switchable betwwen two inputs? Do you have it set to the correct input (i.e. VGA vs DVI)? hit the selection button on the front panel, just in case.

Is the card properly seated? Take it out and put it back in. Also, oddly enough, reseating RAM can fix a lot of problems, even seemingly unrelated ones.

Is there an on-board VGA connector? If so, switch over to that and see if you get picture. Then go into CMOS settings and look for a video setting that would make the add-in card the default display. Or simply disable the on-board VGA.

Check the pins on your monitor connection, make sure none are bent.

If none of these get you a picture, I would suggest a defective graphics card.

Stupid anoying grahics card problem


Ok, try this.  Uninstall the PCI gfx card drivers and remove the card.  Reboot.  Go to your Device Manager and disable the integrated card, do not worry about uninstalling it. Shutdown the PC, and then insert the PCI card. Also, make sure in the BIOS that you have integrated gfx disabled.  Then if you can boot with monitor plugged into the PCI card you should be able to reinstall the drivers for that card, and everything should work.  If not, please let me know.  Also, if you downloaded the drivers for the PCI card, try downloading them again as it's possible your download was corrupted.

You must uninstall the drivers of your old card before installing the new card and drivers.
Also make sure the BIOS is set to automatically check what you are using, onboard video (if available) or graphics card.

New graphics card


Sounds like the new driver has mis-identified your desktop and/or monitor parameters, or possibly it is conflicting with remnants of an old graphics driver. I would go to Add/Remove in the Control Panel, and uninstall every graphics driver there, nVidia and/or ATI. Then open the Device Manager and uninstall the video driver and the monitor driver, then reboot, and insert the installation CD for this new graphics card, and reinstall. I hope that helps...

You will have to re-select your desired screen resolution.
