Re: xfx nvidia 6200
This can be due to overheating. When your computer starts, press "Delete" or "F2" on your keyboard to get to the BIOS. Then go to what is usually called "Power Options" or something along the lines of that.
You should be able to find your system and CPU temperature, if any of them are above roughly 75 celcius, that may be your problem - in which case you will either need to dust out your computer or buy a better cooling solution.

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us go here and make sure that you have the correct driver downloaded for your graphics card. Select Geforce then select 6 series then select the Windows that you are using and download the driver. Update your current driver with the one that you have just downloaded. Or run the download and follow the instructions on screen. Once your computer restart it should have picked up the correct driver.
Just an enquiry though, when you load a graphics card on to your computer you have got your monitor plugged into the correct plug on the back. It is not plugged into the onboard graphics instead of your graphics card is it?
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.
i have found that some boards don't like Nvidia graphics cards and play up when it comes to a particular graphical attempt.
You can try the game and card on lower settings, but that defeats the purpose of the card, and make sure you have the latest directx (9C i think) installed
You can try as i did some older graphic card drivers for your model as Nvidia now seem to make generic force drivers for all models.
I had luck with different drivers for a while, but ended up buying an ATI graphics card and as of yet after a year had no graphic problems.
Try uninstalling the driver and all nvidia products, download the latest driver from nvidia's website.
If that doesnt work, then your motherboard is the problem. Older AGP motherboards tend to have problems witht eh geforce 6200/6600 series cards, I recommend updating those drivers and seeing what the deal is.
