Sounds like it's time for updated drivers. you can get them here;
I enetred your info but will go outline for you.
1 Product type-GeForce
2 Product series-GeForce 400 Series
3 Product-GeForce GT430
Pick your operating system and language and click search. This will give you latest update. I will provde MSI's site as well they have "Live eye" taht will scan you computer and advise you of updates;
I beleive in an original setup you should go with MSI for all the bells and whistles but, when it comes to garphics driver updates, I would use Nvidia. This should cure your problem unless you have power or ram issues. If this doesn't help you or if you have any questions let me know at "add a comment"

How can I get more speed from my computer? When trying to play any online games it freezes and crashes

install more ram. i hate to bash on a pc manufacturer but emachines tends to go with lowest bidder parts. it's probably your graphics that can't keep up and it may be overheating or overloading the cache/buffer. if you give me your model number and what game you're playing i can verify this. you need to make sure your system has supports the minimum requirements for the game

When i go to play any of my games on my desktop pc my computer freezes and goes to a blue screen at the same point every time even though my computer meets all the specifications required, i think that i...

This one really depends on the game or application your trying to use. Bioware for example most recently had an issue with Mass Effect 2 in which the game did not work well on non-dual processors to spite system specifications. The issue had to do with the movies, not the the rendered scenes. Ironically, new compression standards have made some video more intensive on lower end processors than fully 3D rendered scenes. If the problem was heating or damage to the card, you would crash after a certain amount of use, not at a certain point in the game. If you think it is the card, you can turn everything down to the lowest setting and see if the issue goes away. But I'm betting it won't. I would check the other components...make sure your system RAM is good, look for patches or forum complaints about the game your playing, and close out anything like Skype, Steam, messenger clients, etc. that your not using.

You wont be able to play a "demanding" game on any integrated graphics chip. While you may be able to start the game and load into it, it will be unplayable, or a painful experience at low resolution at best. I play World of warcraft, which isnt very taxing on a system, unless you put settings on ultra and high shadows. I can play it on my laptop with the same chipset that you have, but i am forced to play at the lowest resolution, and turn all settings to off/lowest, and it still only gives me 20ish frames per second. Ideally you would want to never dip below 30 to be playable As far as the HDMI port, that is just how the video signal is being sent after leaving the video card/chip. Even with the HDMI, your lack of dedicated graphics will be your limiting factor, and will not get any better by sending it through HDMI.

Same problem basically

ATI has a lot of options to modify the Image quality of the displayed games. I suggest you go to your Catalyst Software and set a profile to the lowest quality and or the maximun compatibility. Unfortunately it's been a while since i got an ATI so i will have to dig for actual info.

Im sure is an option/settings related issue.

hope this helps.

GeForce 6200 shuts down and PC reboots

First check that overheating is'nt the problem, you can remove the sides of the pc and allow hot air to escape easier, if this cures it you need more fans, while your'e in the pc check for dust blocking fans and vents. Also visit the game makers web site for bug fixes if there are any and also go to graphics card web site ( possible known game issues that you are playing.
