Question about Evga e-GeForce 6200 GeForce 6200, (256 MB) Graphic Card

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 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

Slow computer. Slow to boot. Runs slow most of the time. Running Windows XP on Dell Dimension B110. Verizon high speed access. Use Explorer. Plenty of disk space. I've run the cleanups, killed the...

First thing I would do is take the desktop outside and clean it out with two cans of compressed air.

HEAT can really slow a machine down. Let me know if that makes a difference (good to do either way) and we'll go from there.

My system says, (RAM) radon access memory low cpu intel (r) pentium 4 cpu, version 2.80 ghz. RAM 256 mb. What can I do to resolve this problem. Dell 4700 dimension

Windows XP requires a "bare-minimum" of 128MB of RAM, works "OK" with your 256MB of RAM, if you don't open too many programs at the same time, and if you close/re-open Internet Explorer about once an hour of usage.

But, Windows XP would be _much_ "happier" if you added 256MB or 512MB of RAM, because it is telling you ("available random access memory is low") that it is using all the RAM.

Add more RAM -- your computer will run much better.

I upgraded my B110 to 2x1GB of ddr400 ram. (PC3200) It is running at 333MHZ instead of 400 and my processor is bogged down. (Like 99%)

you will need to adjust the RAM setting in the BIOS, BUT you will need a manual to tell you below. Also I have no doubt you have but ensure,again, it is the correct RAM.

Dimension 4400 is very slow what is the problem. I have uninstalled windows and reinstalled and it is still very slow about booting and surfing web and performing tasks.

This computer has only 1.7ghz and 256mb ram. That is your biggest problem. On windows XP its recommended to have at least 512mb of ram, and 1gb would be even better. Ram is the best way to speed up your computer, as its very cheap and packs a punch. If you want to upgrade your processor, you may want to look at another computer, as they can be very expensive at times.

Memory Upgrade Attempt Causes Computer Not to Post

Seeing as the message is indicating a problem at one of the timer checkpoints, fatal is probably an accurate description. You are most likely looking at a motherboard replacement scenario. I've seen improperly seated memory modules toast timer circuitry on old boards back in the days when most of the timing circuitry was constructed from discrete components, not entirely IC-based timing solutions, but I have never seen it happen on modern boards.

First, what kind of upgrade do you expect to do? Many motherboards will not accept a different processor. That being said, you can use a small flat tipped screwdriver between the heat sink and processor. There isn't much room, but very gentle prying all around should do it. You may heat it up a bit with a blow dryer to soften the heat sink compound that hardens with age. You can't harm it with the temperature of the air from a hair dryer.

Want to buy more RAM..

Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)

If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::
