Problem with Nvidia GeForce XF 5600 AGP graphics card...

When i first got the card with a different computer it worked fine, but then the old computer (this was about 2 years ago. almost 3) died on me so i gave the graphics card to a friend to put in his till i could replaced the m/bored and processor. i just got a K8V-X SE mainboard and a semperon 3400 processor and it works fine, plugged in the graphics card and during a few of the games it will work beautifully. but with other games such as: americas army, freelancer and Rome Total War. after a short period of time, say...10 mins? at the most. the graphics will become pixilated? is the best way i can really describe it. after this has happened the card gives the same pixilated graphics on all games and even in the softwear from nvidia where you can chose the type of 3d image you want to go for. performance/quality etc. untill the computer is rebooted then it is fine untill you use one of the games again. it turns out that the person using the card while i wasnt for the past few years had also had this problem latley but not always? is it that the card is over heating or some such? anything i can do or should i just get a new gfx card?

I also had this problem. I solved it by installing OLD nVidia drivers (56.72). Hope that helps!

It does sound like an overheating problem, although i have also found that this card doesn't work particularly well on all AMD motherboards, although it's an asus card and asus mobo you are using, it is the nvidia chip. You may find an ATI chip card works better on your board. Also check the voltage on your AGP slot as newer cards work on less voltage than the older ones.

Will nvidia geforce 210 1gb graphics card work on mercury p4vm800m7 motherboard???

No. The motherboard only supports up to AGP-8X based video cards and the GeForce 210 is a PCIe 2.0. The slots are completely different. There is no slot on the board that will fit that video card.

I have a GeFORCE FX 5200 PCI card, and onboard graphics. I had to restore my system, and cannot find the user manual. If it was available online, I'd follow the steps myself, but I'll settle for a quick...


You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters.
The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled.
If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.

Nvida geforce fx5500 256 agp compatible with intel d865gbf ?

Yes, they should be compatible. The Intel d865gbf has an AGP port that supports AGP 4x/8x, and so does the FX5500. You should be fine.

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
