Re: dunno whats the problem
Start computer in safe mode and do a system restore to any date before the one when you installed the pc game. On Windows xp you find it in 'start menu'- 'accessories' - 'system tools' - 'system restore'

Not an unusual situation. Try older drivers for the card. You have a couple of options. 1) If you're running a later Windows version, you can revert to earlier drivers with a System Restore. There should be a Help and Support option under your start menu, use that to revert to a time prior to when you updated your drivers. 2) If the last set of drivers you've installed worked, under Windows Explorer, you should have a C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\ folder. Look for a setup.exe file under the fileset before the latest set of drivers, and run that. It should revert you to the driver version that last worked for you. 3) If all else fails, browse to www.nvidia.com, select your region, and from the Download Drivers dropdown, select 'Beta and Archived Drivers'. Select the appropriate settings for your OS and video card, and click 'Search'. You'll find older drivers for your system there. Keep installing older driver versions and test games until you find a driver that works for you.
ok, you can play any game that dosen't exceed your processor speed and memory capability. I recommend upgrading your ram to 2 gigs. this will insure optimal performance. remember, look on the bottom of every PC game you plan to buy and check the minimum requirement on the bottom or back side of the game box. as long as the requirements don't exceed your processor speed and memory, you are good to go. You can PLay WoW on this unit at this point but, be sure to keep the detail level at the medium setting until you get more memory.
hi im josh in cebu phils. Friend your problem is a common problem of a computer hardware which is the video card.Your graphic card could not support higher graphic games thats why it crash. To solve this problem upgrade your graphic card. use 256 or 521 or even higher graphic card. Try also add more memory so that it will work better. good luck hope i helped you.
Their is a reason that it crashes and it is not because of the game if it crashes at other times too. Toom much HEAT is usually the problem. Look for slow or stopped fans. Dust on the heatsink.Run the antivirus. After that clean and defrag the hard drive. Let me knw that that did not take care of the problem.
For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.
Give this a shot - solves the problem for sure:
Right click-mouse over My Computer Properties Hardware(Tab) Device Manager(button) Click [+] next to System devices right-mouse on CPU to AGP Controller (or whatever your controller is called, mine was SiS AGP) Update Driver(button)
Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) Next(button) Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install. Next(button) Select PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge Next(button) Finish(button) Reboot.
Try uninstalling the driver and all nvidia products, download the latest driver from nvidia's website.
If that doesnt work, then your motherboard is the problem. Older AGP motherboards tend to have problems witht eh geforce 6200/6600 series cards, I recommend updating those drivers and seeing what the deal is.
