Question about Nvidia GeForce 6200 AGP Graphic Card
I have a nVidia AGP 6200 graphics card on my Dell 8200 Dimension, 1.5 GB RDRAM. I am running Vista 32 bit on this computer and this did not occur when I first installed it and don't know exactly when it did happen. When I run a video, it usually has vertical bars. Often, if I "Minimize then Maximize, it stops. With games, such as "Solitaire" or other MS games, it also has the grayscale bars also, but moving off of the main screen will cause it to light up in the intended color. Any suggestions?
I would upgrade the graphics card driver from the dell website or go here:
and download the latest nvidia driver.
If that does not work, power down the PC. Unplug the power cord, and press and hold the power button for 2 seconds to drain the capacitors. We are going inside.
Open the case, and get ready to pullout the videocard assuming it is a discrete card and you do not have integrated Motherboard graphics, if you do then forget about this.
Be sure to touch the metal case several times to discharge any static you may have and I RECOMMEND you not to work on the carpet.
Unclip the graphics card from the motherboard (there is a small clip at the end of the AGP port. Now the card should come free (although you may need to take out a screw depending on how the case is designed). Once the card is out plug it back in carefully.
Plug everything back in and boot up. If there are still bars then it may be time to get a new AGP card. There are many many on EBAY.
