video does not awake from power save setting Is 6200 AGP8x 512mb card starting to fail?
Update 2/25/12: Please disregard - this was a monitor failure - video card ok.

I use a power saving mode that turns off the video after half hour of no activity. I used to move the mouse or hit a key on keyboard and the video would restore/resume. Recently I cannot get video to resume. I see light indicator for hard drive (and hear the typical dull sound indicating drive activity). I think I see a faint whitening/brightening flicker of monitor as if the video is trying to come on but doesn't quite make it. I must power down and restart the pc. Is this indication the card is starting to fail?

I installed a used PNY 6200 AGP8x 512 nvidia card about a year ago. I have no idea how old the card is.

The 6200 AGP8x 512mb nvidia card is in an 2004 (8 yr old) hp midsize tower with Asus P4SD-LA (Oxford) motherboard, Intel Pentium 4 2.80HZ and 2GB memory running XP SP3. I use for office work, internet and some video playback but no gaming.

Glad you got repaired What was the monitor brand and model # ? Maybe you could help someone else spot a failing monitor.
