Yes, check to see if it connected to the 6200 and not the motherboard. The motherboard one will have other things around it like keyboard and mouse ports. It's on the back and should be close to the floor rather than just over half way up.

You will have two possible connections for your monitor on the back of the computer, make sure it is in the correct one.

In saying that I would now suggest a clean install because yours seems to be corrupt if those drivers are not detecting your os as windows 7. And to further arouse my suspicions that it is a corrupt installation is the fact aero should have worked straight away.

What score does your windows experience index say, go here

Computer, system properties and then click on windows experience index, now tell me the score.

i'd installed the windows with the monitor cable conncted to the motherboard, because mine monitor doesnt turn on plugged at the graphics card, but i just tried right now and it was all black.

Right so you have not got it connected to the 6200 then, that's why it is not working. Does it not even light up a bit on the 6200. If it doesn't then the card is broken and you will need to replace it.

If all your concerned about is aero then I would suggest another 6200 because you will get one second hand for 10. And I know 100% it will run it fine.

the card is awsome at my xp sp3, my only issue in the xp is that the monitor can only turn on the monitor after the boot screen and after that is awsome, my real problem is the windows 7, but i'll try to install the windows 7 with the monitor plugged at the geforce, and remembering you my card is a PCI 6200.

Yes but thats the latest NVidia driver and it doesn't work on my system either.. compare the driver version with the one on my attachment above.

Could your problem be that you have the onboard graphics enabled too?
Another thought.. as you had the latest Nvidia driver installed, it sounds as though you have Windows Update automatically downloading and installing things. You should turn that off and keep control manually
