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.

EV3A GT520 video card installation makes my screen go blank. My gateway computer has an integrated chip for video, and does not even recognize the new card but its plugged in, fan working, etc.


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.

I have a asus p5g41-mlx3 mobo and i'm trying to install a palit 8400+ 1gb video card, but after installing and starting up my pc i get a blank screen. if i take out the card my computer works fine....


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?

When i install my video card the screen is blank


Use onboard graphics and enter the BIOS/CMOS by pressing the delete key during boot.

Go through the options, some-where there, there should be an option to enable PCI-Express slot, PEG when one is inserted. This need to be set.

So onboard VGA is disabled unless PCI-E Graphics card/PEG is inserted.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Cheers

Blank screen after boot up


Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.
BACK UP :)

Monitor goes black after windows boots up


Try removing the video card, and look up your motherboard / system manual on dell's website on how to manually reset the bios.

1. Remove video card
2. Reset BIOS (physically opening the computer and using a special jumper and/or removing the battery...what ever the manufacturer says to do to reset the BIOS).
3. After BIOS is reset, try booting up via your onboard video card first. Once you get that working, go into the bios settings and make sure it is set to boot the onboard only for right now and then you can make sure the ATI software is fully uninstalled when you get into windows.
4. Reinstall the ATI card and boot up with the video still connected to the onboard card. See if it will let you install the driver.

The trick here is to reset the bios and get the system booting off the onboard card if at all possible. If that works, then you can always reinstall drivers and then tweak the bios to boot off the AGP card instead of the onboard.

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

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.
