Question about Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Video Card Graphic

1 Answer

No signal on HDTV

I have a quite old pc and i recently realized that my geforce fx 5200 has a dvi i bought a dvi-hdmi cable to connect my tv with my pc to watch movies.The tv recognizes that something is connected in the hdmi port but still has "no signal". At my Nvidia control panel i tried to choose connection type put it only allowed s-video..
Ps: since i changed my drivers(yesterday) there is no more a "choose connection menu" at my nvidia control menu

    shayahakohen one last question. I just talked with an e-shop about getting a graphics card as u describe it (just newer than my current one) and they told me that my proccessor intel 2.8GHz wouldn't be able to "hold" such a card..are these graphics cards so demanding?

Your graphics card is probably too old to support HDTV signal (720p, 1080p)

    HD ready or full HD is completely irrelevant to your situation. If your tv has an hdmi input then it most definitly has the ability to support at least a 720p input signal. The problem is your graphics card is probably unable to output a 720p signal because it is too old, and it was manufactored before HDTV became widely released. I would definitly recommend buying a new graphics card. It doesn't need to have an hdmi output, dvi is fine so long as you use the dvi-hdmi cable. Almost every graphics card made nowadays will be able to send a 720p signal (HDTV) because it has become a universal standard.

  • shayahakohen Dec 04, 2008

    There are all kinds of graphics cards, ranging from 20 bucks to a few thousand. You would probably be able to get away with a 30 dollar card. You need to make sure that your motherboard has the right slot for the card you are buying. There are genarally 3 types: PCI express, PCI, and Agp. Agp is no longer used on motherboards and hasn't been in several years, but you can still buy the cards for them. PCI express is the main one used today. If you don't have either, you can just use a regular pci slot, but the graphics card will not be as good.

Dear civetscat,

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I have research these converters/adapters before that can convert from the DVI port on the video card to an HDMI source. They are very exspensive for the type that truely work, and the cheap ones provide terrible graphics. Your best bet, is to research both the adapter and a replacement video card for your PC that will have the HDMI and VGA outputs you seek.
I have provided links to both below, from a site call

Happy hunting and have a great day!

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.

I don't think the FX 5200 supports DVI. If I remember right this card only supports VGA. Hope this helps.

Nvidia fx 5200

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.
