    I know the card is factory standard so its not been overclocked,and as far as i can see its running at an average temp.

Many time overclocking the core does this. Same happens when card is overheating. Check both.

Setup dual-boot disks, one loads VGA instead of GeForce 6200

You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark.
When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.
