Need new graphics card
My geforce 9200 went out 2 days after pc warranty expired. Want a card non-integrated with 1 g mem. Have Acer Aspire x300g pc, 4 g ram, win 7, amd athalon II x2 255 processor dual-core, 1 T hd. Not a gamer so don't need anything expensive.
pc is small tower, not low profile. I have a nvidia geforce 220 if that would work. thanks!

What happened?..I fixed a card that crashed simply by adding the heat grease to the heat sink under the fan..If it works for a few minutes after you shut down..try the lube..its the stuff that you use for your processor to keep it cool..

Does the card work after you shut down for several minutes allowing it to cool?...It takes only a few minutes to heat up the video processor under a load (gaming-graphics ect.)

maybe its a hardware issue something simple such as i pointed out~~

The screen suddenly went all different colors and the picture was skewed. I rebooted and then vertical lines were on the screen. I went to a site that gave you pics of different situations and the picture indicating the graphics card was bad was exactly like mine with the lines. The next morning I booted up the pc and got a black screen.

The GeForce 220 should work as a replacement as long as it fits in the slot and the case.

im sorry for your problem...looks like the card fried..did you smell anything when this happened? Maybe the fan was at fault or the heat sink that sweeps away heat failed due to lack of that grease i mentioned...if you have on board video your still in it to win..check the back of your case for a video port...if theres one there plug in your cable and run setup in your bios...enable on board video ...disable the card..

Thanks for your advice. I in no way meant to diss nvidia. Things happen. I love the 220 I had put in an older Dell during the summer and hoped it would fit the acer. Worth a try. If not, I will check out your advice. If I didnt like nvidia, wouldnt be on this site looking for a referral to one :)
