The video card is not a problem when connecting to the Internet. What bothers me is the memory modules the you inserted, the processor speed, the hard drive space and your internet connection.
1. Kindly check the memory module if the specifications the same. (like are they both PC200 or PC3400, etc.) 2. Kindly check also your processor speed. If its 1.8Ghz, 2.8Ghz, or 3.0Ghz 3. The speed of your internet connection. Is it 1mb, 2mb. 4. Your Anti-Virus. Is it currently updated. Does is also provide Malware scanning, etc.
Kindly check all of this. Because for what I know, this are the factors that you cannot connect to the internet.

My monitor dell 1909w get frozen sometimes, i installed the drive and is not fix.


problems may not be with the monitor. hard disk failure is the most common cause. Overheating inside the computer can also cause your program to hang (may need additional fan or blower to cool it down). video card that cannot support high graphics requirement can also cause it (avoid playing or loading programs which require high graphics and memory requirements)

I recently bought a Nvidia GeForce 6200 256Mb AGP card to replace a 5200 card so my daughter can run her school assistance programs. its my old computer and I never had any problems with the old card...


Sounds like a Driver Conflict.
Still have the old 5200 drivers in there?

Did you install the drivers for the 6200, BEFORE you physically put the graphics card in? (Not shouting)

Let's say you did remove the 5200 drivers, before you installed the 6200 graphics card.

BUT,
If you physically install the 6200 graphics card, BEFORE you have installed the drivers, Windows 'sees' a new device, and hurries up to match one of it's generic drivers.
(Windows has thousands of drivers!)

Now you come along, and install THE drivers for the 6200. Windows has a drivers conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These, or THESE?"

Makes for a garbled graphics display as you've described.

If the above is true, start over.
Go to Add/Remove Programs, and Remove the Nvidia software. All of it that has Nvidia next to it.
(THIS, is provided of course, that the computer HAS Integrated Graphics, and does not just use a graphics card. You will be plugging the monitor, into the VGA port in the I/O area, on the back of the computer temporarily, if this is true, and this computer has Integrated Graphics)

(Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs) If there is more than one Nvidia program listed, Do No restart the computer each time you remove one. Do Not restart. Read on)

After all Nvidia software has been removed, close Add/Remove Programs, close Control Panel, and return to the desktop screen.
Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 5 seconds. (Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005) Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Open the case. TOUCH the metal frame of the case to relieve your body of Static electricity. Remove the 6200 card. Plug the monitor into the back of the computer into the VGA port. Leave the case open, you'll be going back in there.

Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn it on. After Windows has fully loaded, install the GeForce 6200 drivers from that CD disk. Do Not restart.
Shut down normally.

Unplug from power. Touch that metal frame again. Install the GeForce 6200 card. Close the case. Plug the monitor into the GeForce 6200. (You did plug the monitor into the 6200 the first time, right, and not the VGA port?)

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Go to Start>Nvidia>Nvidia control panel, and set the settings.

How to adjust LCD wide monitor to a higher


This error is typical of an incorrect video driver has been installed.
To check the installed video driver go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Advance button - Adapter tab. This shows the adapter/driver. If it shows VGA graphics card or not the model of your graphics card then you need to download the correct graphic/video driver and install it. You will then able to configure the display at a higher resolution and at the highest color bit (ie 32 bit if there is sufficient video RAM installed).

Lagging bad on internet low FPS rate


Lag problems wont be anything to do with your monitor, more driver problems or an incompatibility with your new card. Try getting up to date drivers and contact their tech support (the graphics card) and give them your system spec. They will advise if the card is not compatible. This is not about the Windows version, but more about your RAM/HARD Drive speeds.

Also, if your PC had, prior to this install an on-board graphics chip then this can cause problems such as this which cannot often be fixed - try ensuring the onboard graphics is switched off on the BIOS if you can.

Graphics card prevents windows from loading


I agree with NeoDude007, Sometimes Windows update will find a video driver maybe newer that the one you are using but sometimes it will screw up the resolution or color quality.

Onboard graphic (vga) chip problem


You never said that you ininstalled the drivers for the cards. Try this:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.


Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
Let me know how you make out.
