PNY Geforce Nvidia 6200 256MB PCI only

I keep getting blue screen Nvidia crash if I load drivers but if I use Microsoft Basic Display Adapter I do not get blue screen.

The BSOD is associated with nvlddmkm.sys.


It is with an old PC, Dell Dimension 3100/E310.

Is it a driver problem or just old crap?

:smile:

Dell 1505fp this is the monitor I am using with it.

Tried the dvi to vga adapter with my card and the screen went funny, must be the monitor.

Going back to the old E156FP to test.

No it is the driver or card. Video stutters.

Passive cooled video card and Chemi-Con KZG caps.
I'm willing to bet they are bad.
Replacing them might not be worth the cost though.

The stutter does not appear in Ubuntu Linux?

Or Windows XP.

I found that is it 64ghz refresh rate and not 60ghz.

Maybe a driver error.

It worked great on my LED TV the cables but not on that Dell 1505fp.

It's possible.

But personally, I think it's the GPU that is on the way out - likely the bumpgate issue.
The fact that this is a 256 MB GeForce 6200 means it uses the NV43 or never cores - and those are extremely prone to the bumpgate issue.

Since this is a PCI card, it may be worth to replace the caps on it (as PCI cards still hold their value somewhat). Replacing even half of those KZGs should be enough. If that doesn't fix the card, then it's certainly the bumpgate issue - in which case, a reflow may bring the card back to life.

Either way, if you do get this video card working, *definitely* put a fan on it. I have a similar GeForce 6200 PCI card, and it runs too hot for its own good without a fan.

A heatgun will *not* f-up your video card, but an idiot will.

What they guy in the above video says is true. However, for a few video cards/chipsets like the GeForce 6150 and 6200, the chances to bring back a "dead" GPU/NB is much higher that most other GPUs.

In any case, I do agree that you should try a recap first before attempting a reflow - always better to try the simple solutions first. ;)

So moving right along...

Looks like you have standard United Chemicon KZG 6.3V, 1000 uF, 8 mm diameter. I can't quite tell the height from your pictures, but it looks like 15 mm. If that's the case, your new caps will need to have 28 mOhms or lower for the impedance (ESR) and 1490 mA or higher for the ripple current.

Your board has space for 10 mm dia. caps, so you can probably go with these:
http://www.badcaps.net/store/product...roducts_id=169
They are rated much better than the KZG.

Alternatively, you can go with these:
http://www.badcaps.net/store/product...products_id=49
I know they don't quite "meet" the paper specs of KZG, but they will be fine. I've replaced quite a few KZG caps myself with Rubycon ZLH, and it hasn't been a problem.

*Edit*
I see you are in the UK, so an alternative source of caps would be RS-online, Farnell/element14, or NewArk. AVOID eBay and Ali-Express as they have way too many counterfeit cap sellers.

Zip ties, wire ties... or screws if you like (but make sure to remove the heatsink if installing the fan with screws).

*Edit 2*
You do NOT need to replace the silver/red caps - those are polymers and won't give you problems. Also no need to replace those small brown caps by the PCI connector. They look like Chemicon KMG, which should be okay.

60, 70, or 80 mm fan should be plenty. Run it at 5V.
This should keep the fan quiet while still moving plenty of air for this video card to stay cool.

As for what connector: probably better if the fan comes with a Molex connector - then you can just simply connect directly to a spare PSU HDD/floppy drive connector. Just extract and re-arrange the pins of the fan connector so that the fan runs on 5V, as mentioned above. Otherwise if the fan has no connector and it's a simple 2-wire fan, then connect the wires directly to a spare Molex HDD/floppy connector. Just be careful that the wires can't come out of the connector and short-out to each other.

Do I add flux when soldering the new capacitors to the board?

How hot does it get the soldering station I can go up to Temp. Range : 180 - 450 ℃.

Or these as well, I also saw some teapo being sold there
?

You only add a tiny tiny bit of flux to the solder joints of the caps - and that's only if you are not using rosin-core solder already. However, adding flux to the solder joints of the old caps could help you remove them easier.

Depends on your station.
Does it use T12/T15 tips or 900M tips. If it's the latter, the Hakko clones can be pretty decent or very crappy, so you probably need to crank the temperature to at least 350C. I have a 70W station with T12 tips, and I can solder mostly anything between 300-330C.

Rubycon ZL might just work fine, but that's about as high ESR as I would go. The equivalent of that is Chemicon KZE and Nichicon HD.

The other two links below that appear to be for Nichicon PW and Nichicon VZ. PW is okay for power supply repair, but probably not good enough for motherboard and video card buck-type VRMs. In all honestly, probably both would work, but it's not a good idea to use them here.

Can you be more specific what you mean?
Also, for future posts, can you consolidate all your questions into one single post, if possible. Makes it hard to track what's going on in the thread when you post multiple questions into multiple posts.

How do you know the remote even has a capacitor problem? I see a Panasonic 85C general purpose cap on it, but I doubt that would be bad.

Ah, that's very good. Tips with built-in heating element are much better. So you should have no problem trying to solder between 330-350C. If you've never soldered on a motherboard or GPU before, then stick with 350C - it will make it a bit easier for you.

There are NO set/specific caps for motherboard, graphics cards, and PSUs.

You pretty much look up what caps you have on your board and then, based on that, you look up their datasheet and select proper replacements.

That said, *most* PSUs do tend to use "entry level" to "mid-range" low ESR caps. Motherboards and GPUs on the other hand, *usually* use "mid-range" to "ultra" -low ESR caps. Of course, depending on where the cap on the motherboard or GPU is located and what it does, you may sometimes use a lower-tier cap without issue.

In your specific case, you have Chemicon KZG. The equivalent to that is Rubycon MBZ and Nichicon HM (both of which are no longer made.) A slightly better tier of caps (i.e. an upgrade) would be Rubycon MCZ and Nichicon HN or HZ (but again, neither of these are made anymore.)

Meanwhile, caps like Rubycon ZLQ/ZLH, Panasonic FS/FR/FM, and Chemicon KZM are just a notch below Chemicon KZG, but still will work okay to replace them in most cases. And these are readily available from just about everywhere. (Avoid eBay or Ali Express though!)

Then there is Rubycon ZL/ZLK, Chemicon KZE, and Nichicon HD. These are a notch below the tier I just posted above, but again, in quite a few cases, even these will work to replace KZG. The only place where I wouldn't suggest doing it is on a motherboard's CPU output - there you will actually want to use either something better than this tier *or* upscale the capacitance and voltage in this tier to get a bigger cap (which will result in lower ESR and higher ripple current capability.)

Below this tier, there are several more, but I won't list them here as they pertain more to PSU recapping usually.

According to badcaps.net store: YES. Postage is stated to be $14.50 for international shipments, though.

That doesn't mean your problem is capacitor-related.

I made another photo of the capacitor, this is the height of it.

I noticed on the other side where the legs stick out, the solder is very small, it does not take much solder on the board.
