GeForce FX 5200

I have a G5 Mac with a GeForce FX 5200 graphics card and a Apple Studio Display, when i open a job in quark you cant see a grey box that is placed, upon calibrating the moniter a certain grey wont show. I have changed moniters and it is still the same so i suspect the graphics card has gone, does anybody have any ideas?

If your video card was not working correctly your problem would be evident in other applications as well, I suspect you have a software problem on the computer, most likely with the OS 10 software and possibly a conflict with the version of Quark you are running.

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 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.

you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

Laggy display after a few minutes play


lot of the game now a days require a pretty big video card. A 5200 is outdated and i know u cant upgrade your laptop. The best solution to this is increase the amount of RAM in your laptop to the max. When you run games lower the video settings to low or medium. Another thing that can help is running msconfig in the RUN box and turning off lot of apps that run in background

G5 Mac with a GeForce FX 5200


This is only a calibration issue. Your monitor is fine. and the card is fine. I would go to your displays preference and go to calabrate your monitor again. This time just choose the calabration from the default one. Ask someone else if they can see the box you just put on there. Sometimes it helps to have a second set of eyes.

I would suggest you upgrade the video card something like the card in this link! Please note it specifically states on the box that it is for Mac G5. You also need at least 512MB system memory and osX 10.3.6 or higher. Cheers & Good luck.
