First, if you haven't done so yet, uninstall any ATi drivers that may exist. After that is complete, you will be prompted to restart your computer. Do that. Next, go to the Nvidia website (www.nvidia.com) and search under download drivers and locate the right driver for your device. Since you may have troubles doing this, the link for your specific video card is below.

https://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.16_whql.html

If you have any other questions, as in if this potential solution doesn't work and you are stuck, reply and I will check back as soon as possible.

Cheers, Homer99

Also, please post the exact words in your BSOD so we can narrow down the problem. Sorry again for totally forgetting about this post :P

I also have a strange feeling a 350 Watt PSU isn't going to be enough to power the card properly. But I could be wrong.

Keep in mind that the 6200 is very much a "budget" card...so if it's your desire to play "higher spec games", you might not quite get the performance you are hoping for. The Celeron is also not a good CPU for gaming, generally speaking.

In addition to Homer99's suggestion, I'd visit Microsoft's Direct X website and download the latest version if you haven't already.
