Question about XFX GeForce 6200 Graphic Card

1 Answer

Blank screen So when the card is plugged in the screen goes blank. When it's not and the onboard video is used everything is fine. Went through BIOS, but no joy. I've swapped the card to a different computer and it worked fine, and I put a different card in my computer and that worked fine, but they wouldn't work together. The Geforce 6200 has a power plug on one end and by accident I left it undone while trying to fix it and then it worked. Here's my problem. I can't find anything about that plug anywhere. It works without the plug, but it's got to be there for a reason, and I'm worried that I won't be getting the full benifit of this card without it plugged in. But when it is plugged in it doesn't work. Does anyone know anything about this or why it is acting like this.

    Additionally when the card is used it gives a message saying it needs additional power. Presumably because the power isn't plugged in. I'm assuming now that it's a damaged card, but if anyone knows anything else that could be wrong I'd appreciate the help.

    Not the fan plug. That is plugged in. There is an actual power connection that plugs into the power supply, or rather that the power supply plugs into. It's at the far end of the card from the monitor connection. When used without this plugged in a warning comes up saying that the card is underpowered and is stepping down its abilities. When plugged in it does nothing. The card is AGP and the comp is a cicero cq126a-b1

    Hi - if you're talking about the little white plug with a black and a red wire it's the power to the fan. If that's it you kinda need that. Don't want the chip fryin'. That wire plugs into a little white connector a little down and to the left of the fan. Only fits in one way. Is that a PCI-E card? What's the make and model # of the pc please? Thanks.

I just installed a geforce 6200 with heatsink, no fan, in my computer. Fry's is having a sale and for $20 after rebate, how could I go wrong? Upon first installation, the computer failed to boot.

THE FIX

Discovered modern computers will not even atempt to boot if the power supply is below the minimum requirement for the video card's recommended wattage. More proof that over-powered supplies are not an absolute necessity. I upgraded to 250w from the onboard 180w and it fired up. The rest was disabling the integrated video which i found out was compatible with geforce 5200 level of operations.

My system:
Dell Opti-plex GX260, cut to bare minimum since it was from a commercial business with 1G RAM after upgrade.

some bios settings disables the add on video cards. to enable them go to bios setting by pressing DEL or F12 while power on your system. (u will see that a message appears "press ----- Key to enter bios settings). after entering bios setting u will see onboard VGA enable/disable. u have to disable onboard VGA in order to get the display thruogh VGA card.

Check if it a jumper to disable the onboard video. If not, try disabling the onboard video in BIOS or selecting the option in BIOS to use a plugin card rather than onboard.

Where do you have your video cable plugged in? With the new graphics card installed, do you have video out of either connector?

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check

Windows doesn't load


Here's 2 things i would try:

1. Install the latest bios first:
click here

2. When you install the new card, go into the bios first and disable onboard graphics (seems like theres isn't an option for that unfortunately, but check again anyway) choose "auto" if you have no "disable" feature.

3. If you have another pc, or a friend with another pc i would test the card on a different pc just to make sure its not a faulty card.
