Its most likely the video cards fault,
however a bad PSU can cause these problems.

No Power To The Computer
Here you must first check the wall outlet for power by connecting another device such as a radio or lamp to be sure power is present. If the computer is connected through a surge protector, check it as well.
If the wall out has power, check the power cable going to the PC to see if AC voltage is making its way to the system unit. Do this with the use of a multimeter.
If there is power, you will have to open the PC and check for power from the power supply to the motherboard.
When using a multimeter to check voltage, be sure you have a good ground for the black lead of the multimeter.
Rebooting Problems
One main problem you may face with an ailing power supply is that it may reboot the computer without any warning. All information is lost and it seems as though this happens at the worst possible time.
Booting errors when the computer first starts up may be another indicator of this component going on the blink.
Power Distribution Problems
When the power supply begins to fail, you may receive power at one device and not another. For example, the hard drive may receive power, but the CD-ROM drive has nothing at all.
Another headache that would cause rebooting is the intermittent power going to the drives or the motherboard itself. Follow the steps below to check your power supply should you experience some of the above problems.

S-video out to tv nvidia 9300 gforce won't work

obvious things first. have you tried the other input plugs on the TV? do you get the same problem with plugs 1 and 2?
you can try only having the TV connected to the Graphics card and turning on the PC see if it comes up as the primary display automatically.
have you tried configuring the Nvidia setting so ONLY the tv is a display instead of dual monitor?
doing these will rule out faulty cable or faulty S-video plug or Faulty TV input plug.

Hello there,
In Windows, it just comes up with a message saying it will be clocked down, so you just click "OK"? if molex is not plugged.

1. You should install the driver for the graphic card so it wont show distorted images, Microsoft display drivers are not reliable in gaming you may experience distortions.
2. Plug the molex or 4pin power to your card and observe if you will encounter the same problem after doing step 1.
3. If not try to test another PSU or acquire a new PSU that is powerful enough to run the card - not using the power cable could damage all your system.

Hopefully this information helps.
Happy Gaming

Display is fuzzy with barcode like images across the screen at regular intervals.

Video corruption caused by a failed video memory chip. There's nothing that can be done to save it, the card is dead, replace it.

Problem with image display on monitor

That should fit the bill you're asking for. However, your current video card should definitely support 1024x768 fully, even at high hz refresh rates (assuming you are using a CRT). The "waves" may be caused by your video card, but it's really hard to say.

If you have more money, I would recommend this card, as it has a higher price/performance ratio:

That is probably going to be the last high-performance AGP card ever produced, as the AGP bus has been discontinued now for some time. You may need a higher-end Power Supply, however. Good luck!

If it is a AGP card it is not possible that the graphics card can make the keyboard and mouse not respond.
If it is a PCI card there is a chance that it can do what you mentioned.
Also it could be the size of the graphics card, a 512 mg card can sometimes need a 500W power supply so you could get your power supply diagnosed as well.
Hope this helps

Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400

I have the same card....and my PC stops responding from mouse movements sometimes, but not anymore. I found that if I always use the HIBERNATE feature of Windows, that my video problems vanish, so I think the problem is related to video RAM, but not sure, because virtual memory caching plays a large role during wake from hibernate. Also ensure that BIOS video settings are not too extreme, go with the normal or default video settings.
