Driver problem for geforce 6200 (Not sure where to post this)
Well i need to install a driver to the card on my old comp, wich is geforce 6200.. Couldnt find a subforum for the 6 series, so yea posted it here..

after installing GeForce 285.58 Driver (wich is the only one i can find ) . I simply cant boot the computer? after the windows loading screen it just goes black, then after a while it reboots. You can go into safe mode and try adjusting settings etc, but so far i havent managed to sort this out at all.

After every attempt ive had to make a system restore to the point before the driver was installed, and then it runs just smooth.

Any ideas?

Os: Windows xp
Card: Nvidia GeForce 6200
Computer: Hewlet packard pavilion something something

EDIT: im currently using a default generic windows driver to the card as we speak.

That card is so old that despite Nvidia claiming that the latest drivers still support the 6200, I'd be very surprised if the latest drivers actually work on such an old card. I doubt Nvidia still test their drivers on the 6000 and 7000 series cards, so whatever changes they've made to support the newer cards most likely has broken support for the old cards a long time ago. Also, as I recall Nvidia has mentioned that some of the old cards will only work with the newer drivers after a BIOS update. I doubt there are any BIOS updates available for your 6200 though.

The lower one is for windows 7/vis, i dont think its the driver itself.. probs some problem besides it.

well both of them = windows 7

The best and stable driver that I could think off for this card.

Try this driver and it should definitely work http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_84.21.html. (Note: It’s pretty old driver though)

Things you might want to be consider before installing the device drivers:

- Disable integrated/onboard graphics adaptor if any. ( http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/35/kw/updating%20drivers )
- If your graphics card features active cooling, check that the fan on the card is spinning. If it is not, then it can cause the card to overheat.
- Proper cooling - As technology advances and GPU's become more complex, they also produce more heat. Place your PC in an area where it can receive proper air circulation. If not properly cooled, your CPU or GPU can overheat forcing it to run at a lower clock speed.
- Do not overclock any component in your system as this causes system instability and sometimes damage components.

Hope this helps /rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />

Oops! there's an issue with the link. Unfortunately it doesn't work.... Instead use this driver http://www.nvidia.com/content/license/location_0605.asp?url=http://download.nvidia.com/Windows/93.71/93.71_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql.exe

Hi Alexandre91, Try 78.01, that's what i used when my card went all crazy a few months ago. I got the card a year ago and i did every driver update available with no problems, then all of a sudden one of the drivers i updated in Oct messed it up and it wouldn't even function right with the driver from the CD. Give this a try http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_78.01.html
