EVGA E-GeForce 6200 Installation

Okay...first off, I am working with a Dell Dimension B110 with Windows XP and upgraded RAM (from 256MB to 1.5MB--not sure if it makes a difference, but bare with me) and 3 PCI buses. I've had to wipe the hard drive clean once before due to my Registry Editor being tampered with. And I'm still not sure if I got ALL my drivers and documents back on my computer--so here it goes:
I bought the EVGA video card a couple days ago and immediately installed it on my computer. I diligently followed the instructions word-for-word and have ran across a few problems...
When I first plugged my screen input into the new video card I started up my computer to find after the Windows loading screen my desktop had all my icons but they were HUGE, no task-bar, and every time I pulled up a program it was out of sight so I rebooted and re-connected to my integrated input. After a quick restart I came to my desktop again and had no icons, but a task-bar...every time I opened a new program it was out of sight but I could move it into sight by right-clicking the task-bar icons. At first I thought I had missed something so I uninstalled the driver and also ran a system restore just in case. After that I ran the disc again but now instead of the desktop being mixed and out of place I get a dead signal from the new video card... I read the FAQs on the EVGA site and also read the "Quick Fixes" in the manual itself. The site tells me that the card is not installed properly, and that I should try physically reinstalling the video card and trying again (which I don't mind but it all hails the same results), while the manual says that "Quite often the problem is caused by the integrated video adapter not being disabled prior to installing the new PCI based video card." This is where I find myself a bit confused...if I do this and it doesn't solve the problem ...then what? will my screen just not get a signal anymore?

    Okay I tried going into BIOS on start-up but my screen doesn't come on until my 'Windows Log In' screen. So is there any way to disable my integrated video adapter via command prompt or just using device manager? If not...how do I get into BIOS?

  • Doyle Marshall Apr 09, 2008

    I found out what the problem was, I had to disable my on-board video adapter but was unable to do so on the bios screen, I had to do it through my device manager. Also the screen settings were (by default) set up for a dual-monitor system, after I figured out how to change all that I got it all to work out--thanks for the help!

Try to disable your integrated video card in your PC's bios setting. If you have done that job already or your bios doesn't support it then clean your cards pins or tiny golden terminals with soft cloth.Check whether your card supports the mother board Graphic card slot or not . like in case of "AGP slot" speeds are 2x 4x or 8x and in case of "Pci Express Slot" 8x or 16x. Check *********** board's or main board's manual as well as EVGA's manual for compatibility issues. Hope it works .don't hesitate to contact me agian. thanks

SOURCE: EVGA GeForce 6200 512 MB card + mouse pointer

sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

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:

That is exactly right. Actually that videocard can even go beyond and support 2048 x 1536 resolution so you should be good to.

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.

Graphics card


Probably more RAM, but 900MB means you must have a 1GB card - that's pretty good. 2GB total should be plenty.
