The card that was in my PC burnt out. My bro-in-law who is way more comp savvy than I told me to put in the spare geforce fx 5200. I uninstalled the other driver and got the omega driver of the omega website. The problem comes when i try to install the driver.
When i go through all the installation hooplah and it only gets to a certain point before my entire computer freezes.
Is it something with my computer or am i doing something wrong?

Yes, you will need to install VGA drivers for the card to work properly and at its peak performance.
The drivers for your GeForce 5200 can be found here.
Just select the following from the boxes: Product Type: GeForce Product Series: GeForce 5 FX Series Product: GeForce FX 5200 Operating System: The operating system you are using on the PC that you want to put the card into. Language: English (US)

First, look at the card and make sure it's actually an Nvidia Geforce FX 5200. Of so, then you probably installed the wrong drivers for the card. Make sure you go to the Nvidia website and download the correct drivers for the card after deleting the ones already installed. Installing the incorrect drivers could cause Windows to report the wrong type of card is installed in your PC.
The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website.
If you have already tried this my apologies.
as your primary pc now has a working graphics card . I would guess your graphics card is fried in all honesty there is really no hope in repairing it especially for the cost of one of those cards, if you are simply using your second pc for non graphic intensive apps then I am sure you could find an ol pci grpahics card down the local dump for next to nothing hope this helps.
