The monitor gives me a message: Check Video Cables - No Connection. This usually happens when the screen is going to rest mode. The other thing it does is when I go to the desktop from Internet Explorer or from control panel, the icons take a long time to be drawn. Does this mean I have a bad card or is my icon cache too small or what?
I have Nvidia 6200 AGP card to install. Will the work Nvidia better than the ATI -- provided I can get it to be recognized? My current setting in Bios is PCI 1st than AGP. Do I need to change the setting in Bios to AGP 1st or should the bios detect the setting for me automatically when it finds the card?
The last time I tried to install the Nvidia card the screen went crazy since I had uninstalled the ATI drivers. I shut the computer down before the new drivers were installed for Nvidia from my disk because I didn't want to damage my screen.
How should I approach this? I have read the excellent articles about Video cards and they have been very helpful in helping me recognize the correct slots on my board, but I am still confused. I'll be greatful for all help
