    thank you for your prompt response.
    yes, it is a replacement for an older card.
    my computer is old and this is (supposedly) one of the only compatible newer cards available.
    no, i do not believe i removed the old drivers.
    actually, i know i didn't because i do not know how to do that.
    i did install the new drivers from the cd that came with the card.

    how do i remove the old drivers?

Help with upgrading Dell Dimension 4600 GPU


June,

The Dell Dimension 4100 Desktop PC, utilizes an AGP slot on the motherboard, for a graphics card.

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/17152514/17275500.aspx

There are different styles of AGP expansion slots.
The one on your motherboard was the last current style of AGP -

AGP 8X

Therefore your Dimension 4100 uses an AGP 8X graphics card.
It is (Was) an Nvidia GeForce FX5200 graphics card, and the AGP 8X style.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

To replace it just use a graphics card that is AGP 8X, and is better, or equivalent to the GeForce FX5200.

You also need to know that your Power Supply in your computer, will handle the power requirements for the computer system, AND your new found AGP 8X graphics card.

Power Supply was rated, at a maximum Wattage rating of 200 Watts.
Problem is; that back in the day when the Dimension 4100 was made, the Power Supply manufacturer 'Fudged' the real Wattage specifications.

Power was (Is) more like 60 to 70 percent of what is stated.
Divide 200 Watts by 10
= 20
Now take that times 6, for 60 percent.
= 120 Watts
Now take that times 70, for 70 percent.
= 140 Watts
ACTUAL power

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4410189&CatId=2234

I would recommend this one, but it requires 250 Watts MINIMUM,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=853908&CatId=2234

[Graphics card manufacturers, base the Minimum power requirements for their graphics cards; based on a test computer system.

So the Minimum power requirement stated, is not only for the graphics card; but ALSO the rest of the computer.
The test computer system is usually based, on all of the top of the line, power consuming hardware components; of that time

Top of the line powerful Processors, and Motherboards.
Add to that the maximum amount of Ram Memory, that can be used.
Two optical drives, (CD/DVD drive)
Processor fan, and at least two computer case fans ]

KNOW THIS:

A) FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer, and BEFORE taking any new parts out of their Anti-Static bags, or cartons.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return

B) Windows running on your computer, PUT the Installation disk that comes with the graphics card, in your optical drive tray.
(CD/DVD drive)
Install ALL software.

There will be Drivers you are installing, and also a graphical user interface. (GUI)
The GUI for an Nvidia graphics card, (Evga GeForce 6200 is an Nvidia card), is the Nvidia Control Panel.

(For ATI it's Catalyst Control Center)

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

In this case the device is the graphics card.
What version of Windows operating system was not stated.

-> AFTER <- you have installed the software, and if it asks you do you wish to restart your computer; the answer is -> NO

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Now turn the computer off normally.

Follow Anti-Static Procedures, and Physically install the graphics card.
Note*
The AGP expansion slot on the motherboard, will have a type of Locking Arm on it. With most the end of the arm, has a 'fingerdip' in it.
Makes it look as though you press DOWN, on the end of the Locking Arm, in order to release it. (Unlock)

Actually you GENTLY pull up a little on the PLASTIC Locking Arm, to release it.
Release to remove the old graphics card, and to install the new one.

After the new graphics card is installed, attach the monitor cable to it, and close the computer case.
Turn the computer on.

You MAY have to go into the Nvidia Control Panel, and set Screen resolution, and other parameters.

(Look up your monitor by it's manufacturer name, and model number. {Back of monitor - Model Number}
See what the Screen resolution is.
Example - 1280 x 800 pixels

Set Color quality to High (32 bit)

Have additional questions please post in a Comment, or Reply.
(Below my solution)

[When a device is installed on a computer with Windows, Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This = NO
A Driver Conflict can result.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

With THE drivers installed first, Windows will find them.

Hello, I have been using my asus vw222u monitor for a while now, connected to my dell dimension 4600 pc. I have been running the resolution at 1024x768, and been getting relatively clear pictures, but...


Your graphics card will not support that refresh rate @ 1680x1050. you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

Here is the best price/performance card for your machine. and will support upto 2048x1536 @ 85Hz

Hope this helps.

Hi, I have an EVGA GeForce 6200 AGP, 256MB DDR2


This is a common problem, you need to clear the CMOS which will also reset the BIOS settings. Here's a few ways you can do that:

Replacing a Graphics card: Presently a GeForce 420 (64mb) upgrading to GeFroce 6200 (256mb). System is a Dell Dimesion 8200 w/Windows XP at 2GB with 100+ GB free. Will the card work? Tim


If the type of card is the same,and will fit into the slot,such as AGP or PCI or PCIe, then it wil work after you install the new video card drier for your operating system of windows.
