When you reverted to the stock drivers did you use the roll back option?

I doubt this is a solution, but did you try going to the maker of our Geforce card? nvidia makes chipsets only not cards. So you have nothing to lose. Also there is a beta driver section on Nvidia's site. Don't be afraid to try it if your card is featured. It's generally revised no longer than a month which can smoke the stock posted driver by many many months. It's a start.

The driver that is blue screening is one of the most common drivers to do that. You may want to search for it (usually in system32\drivers) and nuke it if you are on the stock driver and attempt a reinstall. it's hard to point a finger just yet but that bluescreen is a direct result of something being wrong with the Nvidia package or it interfering with someone else on your computer.

if there is a roll back option the drivers are not installed correctly,as you have to remove old drivers before installing the new ones
in the device manager uninstall the card
reboot tapping f8 and choose vga mode
when windows finishes rebooting
disable a/virus
install your drivers
reboot the computer

hi there..
i did what you told me...i went to addremove programs and unistalled nvidia drivers...then i went to device manager and unistalled the video card...then i restarted on vga mode...close the antivirus..and i installed the drivers that came with my video card....NO LUCK!!!! DIDNT WORK!!!!


i even "deleted" the file nv4_dis.dll from system32/drivers.... no luck..windows started with 4 bits max on display!!!...pretty bad even ATARI look better than that!...

i dont know what to do!!.. the only way my pc works is on Safe mode"....

if my card was working before i reistalled the new copy on this hard drive,,,why its not working now?.

everything went to hell when i installed the "detective driver" program...told me to "update the drivers" after that...everything went to hell....


any ideas?

Reseat the card in the slot on the motherboard (with the computer unplugged, of course).

Start the the computer in safe mode and remove the nvidia driver again.

Install the chipset driver.

Restart Windows in safe mode and install the 84.21 driver version from nVidia.

Why didn't I think of that? Yes, the Nforce chipset drivers!

Yes taking the card in and out of the machine is also good advice. Do you happen to have another machine to test this card on? I only ask because most Nvidia cards and the 6200 isn't the newest one on the market will look fairly decent even with the Microsoft VGA driver. Certainly not the 4 bit color you are explaining. Do you happen to still have the other hard drive? If so I would do a temp install of it as the primary drive, disconnect the new one and see if you have life again. When you say you only changed the hard drive, it is awfully odd one of the most popular video cards in the world would behave as if Windows has never seen it before.

Chipset driver = driver for the motherboard chipset.
If you tell us what motherboard (or computer) you have, we can find the driver.

When you're at the computer:

Download and run Everest.
That program will produce a list of what's inside your computer.
In Everest press Computer - then Summary. Save the report as plain text. Please post back, with that report as an attachment.
