Question about PNY Technologies GeForce 6200 256MB AGP Graphic Card
I have a few stability issues within windows but otherwise it works quite well. Specifically: 1) When I move windows around, or scroll the contents of windows (basically anything that requires changing the screen) I frequently (every 10-30 seconds) get a blank screen for up to a second and then it works. It does not hang, or otherwise interfere with my work. The GPU temperature as reported by the Advanced Settings is around 40C so it does not look like an overheating issue. 2) Sometimes my machine hangs (possibly due to a graphics card issue, as the screen often gets corrupted before the hang) and when I reboot into windows it hands with vertical blue lines across the screen. I then have to turn the machine off, wait a while, turn it back on. I then get asked whether I want to go into safe mode, I select normal mode and start windows up, at which point it complains about display settings (I presume that is because it has reduced the settings because it failed to start windows previously). I ignore those, shutdown and the reboot my machine at which point it is ok. Machine is as follows: Windows 98 SE MSI-6340 motherboard. 256MB memory. AMD Athlon 1000MHz
