I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I personally think you'd be better off getting a Geforce 8400GS, or ATi HD4350, or Geforce 210GT for that kind of money. I've no idea which is better of the three, but they're all under 50 bucks.

I would have recommended the HD4670 if it wasn't over 100 bucks, which is shocking given the price I paid for it here in the UK a year ago!

friends,i want to hear about gaming performance of geforce 6200 (256mb)card from those using that card,before buying it.please help.

A:to anyone using geforce 6200 video card

I bought a pny 6200 hoping to get one that could be unlocked into a 6600. To my disapointment i got the 64 bit version and i wasnt impressed by the performance in the latest games, high resolutions are simply not possible. It wasnt long after i ditched it and got a 9700 which im more than happy with for now.

Obviously if you do buy one and get 128bit version then it will be a different story.

Yes your motherboard could run it, yes it is a good card, yes you will need a new psu (I suggest the Antec TruepowerII 550) and yes, you need more ram. You have enough ram to run all of the modern games, but only in lower settings. If that's ok, then get the card and a psu.

Im am new to this so please be bear with me.
I have just installed a new GeForce 3d fusion 6200 graphics card to my Dell Optiplex GX 280 (to enable Call of Duty 2), originally graphics was an intel intergrated.
No problems with install, installed drivers and COD2 plays no problem.
Since install when I install a DVD (default player is Power DVD) it freezes. I installed NVDVD which came with the 6200, still freezes.
Video playback from the internet on media player also freezes.
Do I need to just tweek something. I have had a look at settings but nothing obvious jumps out at me.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Hello and welcome to techspot!

Just need to clarify something first. You say when you go to play a movie, it freezes. What exactly do you mean when you say it freezes?

Your entire computer freezes up on you? Or is it just the software you are using to play the movie? As much detail as possible please, and we'll try and fix you up :grinthumb

Can anyone tell me if my GeForce 6200 graphics card would be compatible with this new set up?

You are probably using an AGP graphics card now and the new motherboard supports PCI-e graphics cards so if that's correct then no, it is not compatible with the new motherboard.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 Video card that I recently did a driver upgrade on. The driver version is Dated 10-14-07.

I just did a PC Pitstop Performance check and the results show LOW video performance of 14.42MPS. This SUCKS!

A similar test run just (2) weeks ago showed 93 MPS. I'm pretty sure that was with the old driver.

Why would a new driver KILL the video performance ????

I'd say there's a very high chance it's your power supply. Many Emachines have very poor power supplies. It seems a large quantity of emachine power supplys fail right around when the unit is 2 years old. I'd replace the power supply and see if that helps.

Here's a pretty good power supply, that isn't too expensive.

Seco )nd, if this card is real, are there any other newer/faster cards out in PCI form? I would like to stay with GeForce if possible, ive had good luck with them so far.

The requirements of this graphics card is: petium 4/III/II/celeron, AMD K6/Athlon. An Agp 8x or 4x motherboard. 256mb of memory at least. windows xp. a minimum of 250w power supply.

It looks like you are using an installer utility that comes with the graphics card that is causing a problem.

Let's try installing the driver a different way. Insert the install CD and exit the install utility if it autoruns. Open Device Manager (right click MyComputer, click Manage, click Device Manager). Right click the unknown graphics adapter and click Update Driver or install.

If the hardware update wizard asks to connect to the internet, choose No. Then choose install the software automatically. Windows should find the driver on the CD and install it.

Hi Ken, Look aon the top back of the graphics card for a switch.  See the below image. You should have received a pamphlet in the box describing the use of the switch (legacy mode or UEFI mode).  If your PC has a version 8 HP BIOS then disable secure boot if set. If your PC is not at a version 8 BIOS level then the switch should be in legacy position.  The pamphlet should describe the use of the switch.

I just got my EVGA GeForce 7800 GS 256MB AGP video card a few hours ago and it didn't come with the installation CD and manual (yes, I've checked the box thoroughly). I think it's gonna take about a week for my CD to arrive, so I was wondering if I could install the video card without it and if so, how? Thanks in advance.

A:EVGA video card came with no CD

Yes, you can....all you have to do is disable the current drivers, shut down the computer, and then install the card. When you turn the computer back on, go to, and then download the latest drivers .

Hi all,

on my girlfriend's pc I just installed a Nvidia Ge Force 6200. After rebooting, Seven installed the driver "Nvidia Ge Force 6200 - WDDM etc."
I instead installed latest Nvidia drivers from website (280.26). After this, windows performances show a score for Windows Aero only of 2,0. My question is: installing the latest drivers from website, is really better than keeping the ones installed by Seven? Thanks in advance and sorry for my English. Bye.

A:Doubt about best drivers for Nvidia Ge Force 6200 AGP 512Mb Ram

lucatomjoad, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Just installed one of those in my kids computer to replace a dying 9800 Pro (step backwards in performance, but $30.00 was cheaper than a new computer), and it gets the following,

Can't say how it would do with the latest as I avoiding using it after seeing some of the comments about the 280.26 here and elsewhere so went with the previous WHQL driver,


Also what was in it before and did you remember to uninstall the drivers for it before making the swap? If you did uninstall the previous cards driver, depending on which chipset is on the motherboard it may also take a re-install of the AGP driver (part of the chipset drivers, not from the cards driver) for the new card/drivers to work properly.

I will be building a gaming pc and I cant decide between these two cards. I was going to get the 8800gt but I've read that they get really hot because of the single slot cooler. What I want to know is how much cooler the gts is than the gt and how much faster it runs. Also what do you think is a better brand, evga or bfg?

A:evga 8800gt vs bfg 8800gts 512mb (G92)

Choose a 8800GT with a dual cooler design. Difference in price is about $50~60 between the 8800gt and the 8800gts/512. At least both are now under $300.

Heres a good review:

can my computer handle it right now i got 609.99 mb available so is my computer going 2 need more ram or is the 512mb the ram to run the games? it says 512 mb of availble system memory or more on the box so do i need more?

A:can i run a 512mb video card on a 1gb computer?


I think your a bit confused

your PC has 1GB of ram, this has nothing to do with.....

Your Video card which has 512MB of ram......

The system ram (1GB) is used by the PC for its own use.

The video card has its own memory of 512MB so that it can process video graphics without the need to use the PC memory.

I know that my system is outdated compared to nowadays PCs but it is really sufficient for my humbled needs and it was working fine under XP but when I jumped to Windows 7, I found out that video performance is so poor in a strange way (same exact videos played great under windows XP) and after i did a lot of exhaustive goggling, I just came up with that the reason might lie in the combination of using a DX9 card under windows 7 (PS I'm using the latest 195.62 driver from nvidia). Can someone give the drivers that came up with windows vista 32 so that I try them on the hope that it can help with the performance issue.

PS I use realplayer (and I tried different players but still same performance issue) and Klite codec pack

Hello guys, so I've had this video card for awhile now but it's been really buggy. The main reason is because the disc that came with it (the exact one shown here had some kind of indention on it preventing from being read at all. I tried using drivers of all sorts on the nvidia and EVGA site and all of them end up in failure. As in, the screen stays blank right before the Windows welcome screen or everything loads up but when scrolling, the screen lags and doesn't move to the next frame smoothly.

So can someone point me in the right direction for drivers or some other kind of fix I'm not seeing?

A:EVGA Nvidia 7600GT 512MB AGP Driver

You might have the right drivers, just the wrong settings. If the screen is blank until windows loads, then the onboard video card is still enabled. You can probably disable it in the bios. As for the scrolling....What is your refresh rate set to? Right click > Settings tab > advanced > monitor. If it's at 60 try changing it to 70 or vice versa.

Hey all!

I'm new to the forum and lookin for a bit of help. Here's the deal: I'm running Windows 7 on a notebook with a GeForce Go 6200. No aero, and under the Device Manager, the video card shows up as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". I tried going through the Nvidia drivers online but they apparently don't offer drivers for the Geforce Go 6 series.

I took a look at the thread about issues people were having with the regular GeForce 6200 card here and tried some of the things people suggested but i'm no better off.

Who's got a solution? Thanks for any help.

Hi Alejandro,
Have you tried to make Windows to find a proper driver online?
I'm using the Geforce Go 7300 on my laptop and after the installation I had the same problem you have. I just went to the device manager (right click on "computer", then properties and "devise manager" on the left column, open the "display adapters", right click on "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" and "update driver software", then "search automatically for updated driver software" and it should search, find and install the driver (if available)

It worked for me, I hope it works for you.

I got the leadtek a6200td, and unlocked it, but I can't find it for sale anymore. I think I heard that that chaintech 6200 might be able to, but It's anyone's guess, I got lucky. You want to get a nv43 core, and an early revision (a1, a2, a3), as this is the same core as the 6600 and 6600gt, but some newer 6200's have the nv44 core which can't unlock, it's made with only 4 pipes, and no more.

That score is about right for a 4 pipe PCI card, not as low as I would expect. I believe that (but someone may know better than I) no video card that isn't at least AGP or PCI-Express will not crack a 3 on the WEI.

Hi guys..
Got this card recently.. I have a Intel P4 3.0 GHz and 1 GB of Ram.. I recently also updated my SMPS to 440W..
The problem is when the card is "ON".. Windows XP freezes halfway when its loading.. I read many forums but not many ppl have the same issues.. Most of em suggested to reload `ol drivers.. I've tried the latest one 178.24, 175.19 and 81.95.. Still the same problem occurs.. The best part is the comp only works in Safe Mode with good graphics.. Thats really sad..
Waiting for some "Good" help plz.. Im pissed with this problem.. Btw ive not done any settings in my BIOS.. so if thats to be done then plz do let me know..
Thanks & Cheers..

A:Nvidia geforce 6200

Well, if the card works fine in safe mode and not during a normal session than I would say it's most definitely a driver issue. Here's what I would try...

Boot into safe mode with card installed... make sure it's seated properly
Run Driver Cleaner Pro (download from Guru3D) to remove old drivers
**You may want to consider reinstalling/updating chipset drivers too**
Go into Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the driver entries from there (clean up)
Restart the computer; boot into Safe Mode again
Reinstall the latest drivers for the video card **after chipset drivers if you chose to update!!**
Restart the computer again; see if it boots normally

If the video card still doesn't work, you might have to update directX or download some Windows updates. I'd say if nothing works after that point, ask for an RMA... might be faulty vRAM or something.

Check for overheating.

Also check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

If it`s a cheap generic psu. It won`t be capable of putting out anywhere near it`s rated output. Even a good quality psu will only achieve around 70% efficiency.

Been wondering I have 250 bucks to spend on a vid card. Still can't decide whehter to pick up a 6200 or a 6600. Was gonna go with a lower end 6800 but figured that wouldn't be a good idea seeing that the 6800 GT crushes both the 6800 and 6800 ultra. And on top of that pick up either the 128MB or 256MB??????

I've bought a new Geforce 6200 AGP 4X with 256MB of memory
I'm running XP with SP2 on an AMD 1.4gh with 512MB of Ram

I am unable to run a number of applications some like the 3D Home design crash once i try to render the house in 3D. Others like Max Payne or Return to Caste Wolfenstien crash or fail on startup.

I have downloaded the latest drivers for my graphics card and i'm running DirectX 9

DirectX Diagnosis tool reports no errors.

Most error messages like the one below are less than helpful.
0xC000001D: Illegal Instruction

Any suggestions on where to look for a fix would be appreciated.

SIMS to and older games like Riven work fine on this graphics card.

so i have a pretty outdated system
and i am thinking about upgrading it over the holidays.
i am adding 2 gb ram and am looking for a pci (not express)card tht can run aero for around 50$. i am upgradeing from my wimpy little ati raedon 9250.

would this card be capable of running aero?

With the research ive done on numerous websites i think this card should be able to get the job done.
but im just making sure that anyone doesn't know anthing different.
also if there are any other better deals out there let me know.

any feedback is appreciated

A:Nvidia Geforce 6200

Yes you will be able to use the aero feature and vista will run better with 2GB of ram instead of your 512MB of ram now.

I installed my NVIDIA GeForce (PCI 256RAM) Video Card today, My PC metst all the system requirements but when i try to run halo 2 or refresh my performance score they run for about 1 minute then my monitor shuts off and the pc restarts after another few minutes.

I thought it was the power supply but its a 250watt which it the minimum requirement to run the card...

Ive got my hard drive, a CD Burner, DVD Drive, Floppy Drive, PCI Sound Card, Internal Sound Card, and the GeForce 6200 Video Card all running. (also internal video card but its disabled)

Am i running to many things for it to manage the power to all of them or what?

I recently upgraded my video card from a crap nvidia to a geforce not amazing but cost effective ever since then my computer has not been able to consistently resume from hibernation This first started happening with an XP install but I have recently updated to Vista Business Edition I am pretty sure that it is not the operating system because I had the same symptoms with XP and Vista I have tried using rd party hibernation utilities I have deleted and recreated the hibernate file I have messed hibernation, 6200 Problem with geforce with the ACPI and various power settings in the BIOS all to no avail The system will boot past the loading screen but when it gets to the login screen all I see is a black screen The computer is still running but I can t see anything This happens until I reboot and delete the hibernation information The weird thing is is that if I hibernate it and resume it within seconds it comes back up Problem with hibernation, geforce 6200 fine - any longer and no beans I have the latest nvidia Vista drivers and have updated about every other driver on the computer My mobo is MSI K mmv GB Corsair mem Seagate SATA HDDs IDE CD DVD drives and a piece of crap network card Problem with hibernation, geforce 6200 I got from my grandma Sorry for the long post - any suggestions nbsp

A:Problem with hibernation, geforce 6200

I realize that my vid card ain't very good - I didn't really want to sink a whole lot of money into my old socket 754 AMD mobo! Anyway, the hibernation would not work when vista/XP was first installed, so I would assume that uninstalling the current drivers would take it back to those. Is there some kind of a diagnostic I could run on it? What exactly do the ACPI settings do?

Hi all, my first post on this forum

I have just installed Windows 7 on my PC who have a Geforce Turbocache 6200 (128 meg / PCI-E)

And aero don't seems to work. When i launch an evaluation test, i says "Could not measure video playback".

I have the latests drivers from Nvidia, (191.07).

Also, in dxdiag, neither Directdraw or AGP are enabled.

Any help are welcome

Thanks !

A:Geforce 6200 Turbocache - No aero

Right click desktop, choose personalize. Near the bottom should be a link to troubleshoot Aero. If not, choose an Aero theme if you can.

AGP texture acceleration should be disabled for you since you are running a PCI-e card.

Otherwise, does device manager show any errors for the card or does it say it is running well?

Hi all,

having problems with my GeForce 6200 graphics card. In device manager under display adapter it an exclamation mark appears, when i click on the properties option a message stating this device has not started and a code 10 error appears.

How can I fix this problem? I have tried uninstalling, installing, disabling, enabling, updating the driver.


A:GeForce 6200 code 10 error

Have you got your Mainboard ChipSet Drivers Installed

Try This
Open this app.and click on Clean the Registry

The other thing to try is to simply uninstall the drivers, reboot and let Windows use the basic built-in graphics driver. If the error still occurs then it may be a BIOS setting or even cabling or the way the card is seated that's the issue.


Select the Driver tab, click Update Driver, then select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and manually select the correct driver.

Make sure you have completely uninstalled the previous driver first..

Hope this helps

i recently purchased the GeForce 6200 LE 256MB to retire my old GeForce4 MX4000 64MB video card.

and also i also been reading about the LE series of the GeForce line, calling it the "Lame Edition".

Although i have seen a increase in my 3D games, so it shouldn't be as bad as most proclaim it to be.

so, i just need a bit of insider on this...

is it really worth having??

A:NVidia GeForce 6200 LE (is it good to have?)

Shadow: Here is my two cents. If YOU are happy with it, what difference does it make if the reviewers say it's a Lame Edition?
The same holds true with all your hardware,
unless you want to spend all your time and money being on the cutting edge, which is always just one step ahead of you, and so is impossible.

Hello, i just bought an Nvidia Geforce 6200 256mb, because my Nvidia Geforce 2 Mx400 64mb overclocked and gave up.

I installed the card, i installed the drivers (91.47), and i have 9.0c

But for some reason, sometimes, for no reason, my monitor gets no signal, and i have to reboot my computer, also playing games is impossible..
Does anybody know what problem i have, and how to fix it

Use drivercleaner. Firstly uninstall your drivers, reboot. Then go to google type in DriverCleaner. Download the Pro version. Install, and for at the top of drop down box select the following. NVIDIA. Press start. After it is done, go back to the drop down box and select NVIDIA WDM, and press start.

My CPU should run fear at least on low, right? I've turned resolution down to 640x480, turned everything to minimum, turned anything that had to do with shadows off, and it glitches very, very bad. When I start up the game, the intro is even glitchy. When I'm in the menu, when I mouse over an option, like new game, it takes a good second for it to actually execute. I've never had this problem with any game before. This comp runs HL2 with everything on high with AA and AF, with an easy 100fps. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I just got this GeForce 6200 PCI card when I installed it into the computer it seemed to be working fine, however after I loaded the drivers I get black almost pixle like dots on the screen like it cant draw everything, almost like it does not have enough power. The card calls for a 250W power suply I have a 400w so Im sure Im good on power. When I uninstall the drivers the dots go away, when I reinstall they comeback So im kinda sure its the drivers I was just seeing if anyone knew of a better set of drivers for this card or if I should just get a new card. The dots do not appear when Im playing games. Thank you in advance!

I have just been reading on the internet that it is possible for a user of a geforce 6200 to unlock and extra 4 pixel pipelines, so 8 pixel pipelines instead of 4. Now this is something i would love to do, but don't know how. Can anyone help me

I'm using an Asus Extreme N6200TC which supports and is currently on 256MB. I have already overclocked it from "Core: 350MHz to 454MHz, and Memory 1.10GHz to 1.42GHz". An extra 4 pixel pipelines will help me survive the games i play today until i can afford a 8600GTS/ or GT, or a mid range R600. But on my budget it may take some time.

RivaTuner v2.06 is the easiest way to overclock that video card, it is a free software, u can Google it and find it. now keep in u're mind that it is going to run hotter. and if u overclock too much it might not run.

You can't get rid of DX10, but you can install DX9 from here
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

Your card is an entry level card for DX10, so it will work with DX10, but probably won't play too many of the newer games, if any. It is basically to give you access to the Vista Aero component.
