I have the NVIDIA 6200 in an IBM tower. Tower was given to me, and I saw it work before I took it home. I plugged it into Compaq FS7600 CRT moniter. Computer runs fine, moniter works on other computers, but I get no picture. Any possible troubleshooting advice?

Compaq's are notoriously under powered. You should take a look at the power rating on your power supply, then cheque the necessary voltage for the card. Also make sure that the card doesn't have an extra power connection that you need to fill to make it work.

    I apologize for not making my comment clearer. The power problem I was commenting on was the power supply inside your PC. Most of the manufacturers under power their CPU's. They often put power supplies that barely cover the unit that comes out of factory. Once the owner starts swapping out the parts inside they start having issues because of the power. The only other troubleshooting steps that come to mind for the 6200 is the output connector's. There was a problem with some of the PNY 6200's having one or the other connectors dying out. I'm not sure what you saw the tower connected to originally but if you have access to another CRT I would try it out. Some of the connectors had cold solder joints on them. If your local PC repair shop has a tester for the CRT connector it would be worth a check. If it is the connector have a look at the solder joints. Hopefully that will solve the issue.

Lg ibm multinet i tower allows power to the motherboard but wont start up, what should i do?


Do you have the original set up disk? Or an emergency disk? If so try them. There is a danger you may lose all your files and software, so don't re---install from scratch. MS Windows disk has a 'Repair' option

Lg ibm multinet i tower allows power to the motherboard but wont start up, what should i do?


remove the power cord, remove the bios battery, short the two contact together in the battery holder for a few seconds, replace the battery and power cord and try again.
if that doesn't work, start removing items/plugs (not the big 20/24 pin one) from the motherboard until you get beeping noises.
if still nothing then put everything back and try a different power supply.
if that doesn't work, your motherboard is probably dead.

Our IBM X3200M3 Tower server is unstable - any suggestions please?


Perhaps one of the case feet broke off - try slipping a small thin piece of wood under one corner of the case. If that works, super-glue it in place.

Which is better, the NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU or the NVIDIA GeForce 6200?


The 6200 has dedicated memory and being a several years more recent design is easily the better of the two.

Hard drive says it is a n IBM Deskstar, the outside of the tower says Netvista, where do i look and to find out what is really in this thing and where can I download for free a user guide /manual.


you can get the system snapshot. you can use any external tool like pc wizard 2008 to get a complete configuration of your system.

if you donot want to use any external tool then there is an option in windows also.

just go to start->run-> msinfo32.exe

from this tool also you can get the system configuration completely at very high level.

The tower of the washing machine isnt spining, but the base of the tower is.


The "tower" that you are referring to I assume is the agitator. If your agitator isn't moving, the agitator dogs (or teeth you mentioned) are the general suspect. They are made of plastic and typically wear out. The heavier the use, the quicker they wear out. If the teeth on the inside wall of the agitator are still in good shape, the dogs can be replaced without replacing the entire agitator and can be purchased at most appliance parts stores for less than $10. I hope this helps.
