Question about XFX GeForce 6200 Graphic Card
Hi, I have got an NVIDIA GeForce 6200 graphics card. Now theres somthing wrong with my graphics card which is causing dotted lines to go across my screen. These lines are are all mixed up rainbow colours and in the bios screen they are just black and white dotted lines. Now I had this problem checked out by my cousin who is a computer technition and he said it was the motherboard that was playing up on me. So my cousin got me a new motherboard but we still had the same problem as before. So my cousin said that there was somthing wrong with my graphics card and told me that I needed to buy a new one. But Im guessing that maybe my graphics card is over heating. Because the problem happens only during the hot wheather, but during winter I didn't get the lines across my screen. But now that summer is returning here in australia and the wheather is getting hot, Iv gotten the lines across my screen again! Also when I try to instal the driver for my graphics card it starts installing to 50 percent, then my computer restarts and it comes up with send error report, somthing wrong with NVIDIA Graphics Card or somthing like that. What do you think the problem is with my graphics card?
Firstly, start your pc in safe mode (f8) on boot up. This will start your pc in vga mode, and hopefully the lines are still there, which will indicate a faulty graphics card, if they aren't it may be a problem driver. If no lines, go to Add/remove programmes and uninstal your graphics driver. Re boot pc then when it finds your card make sure you point Windows to the folder in which you have saved the driver files. The driver should then install, see if any change. You may have to try some older drivers, as Nvidia can be awkward at times. I have had varying problems with Nvidia and replaced with ATI cards with no problems.

Turn on ur pc while lifting ur gpu slightly and hold it up this could be a connectivity problem:)
