Question about XFX GeForce 6200 Graphic Card
I purchased a SFS GeForce6200 AGP card and it works in standard VGA mode. When I install the NVidia drivers, the screen goes blank with some occasional narrow colored streaks and stays that way and the power indicator light turns amber. The computer is not locked up because I can access it from another computer on the network. XFX suggested some other versions of the video driver but that didn't help. I installed the card on another computer and got the same results. I never tried restarting the computer a few times after the drivers were installed. I don't know if that would make any difference.
I'm afraid to share my sympathy with you mate, but your card seems to be knackered. If its the one that came with a standard heatsink, and you get those streaky lines then its time to thrown that card away. Its done its time.
In future I will buy a fan for any graphics card I buy even if already has a heatsink built in to the card. The temperature can go as high as 80 Degree's C and at those running conditions its less then obvious why these cards fry up and give folks streaks.
I've wrote to innovision multimedia and await an answer soon. Just trying my luck if they can sort my card out over the coming months.

Does this happen AFTER Windows has done a full boot up, or before?
If this happens after Windows has started, then the problem may be with the vertical refresh rate. Some monitors will shutdown if the refresh rate is set too high. To correct this, I would suggest loading your computer into Safe Mode, which should allow the video to work, and go into your video properties (right click "Desktop", select "Properties", click "Settings" tab, click "Advanced"). On the "Monitor" Tab will be a drop box for Screen Refresh Rate. If it's set to something above 80Mhz, try selecting a lower rate, such as 70Mhz. Other than that, I'm not sure. And no, you cannot use Remote Desktop to change the refresh rate as it doesn't use the video card to display with.
