Question about PNY Verto GeForce FX 5200 (128 MB) AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

GeForce FX5200 will not ''soft reset''

I have a PNY Verto GeForce FX5200 installed in an MSI KM4M-V. Any time I attempt a 'soft reboot' (Windows 'Restart' option, CTRL-ALT-DEL in true DOS, or exiting CMOS SETUP), the card does not re-initialize.

The KM4M-V has onboard video, and it is one of the generation of boards that disables the onboard video if an AGP card is present. When the FX5200 fails to initialize (after any soft-reset), the onboard video works instead, telling me that the BIOS did not detect the card. Windows also does not detect it. There is no CMOS option to disable the onboard video, except to set ''VGA Shared Memory Size'' to 0. If I do this, then soft-reset results only in a locked computer.

Rebooting via the RESET button works fine.

I have updated to the latest BIOS available for my mainboard from

I am currently running Windows XP Professional SP3, but this is not OS-dependent, as I had the same problem with Vista Ultimate. I have booted into pure DOS (via a boot floppy) and also had the same problem.

    This problem also exists in real-mode DOS, where Windows drivers can have no effect. Further, it also takes place in CMOS setup, before ANY os is even loaded.

    No, I did not get the problem resolved. Actually, I had a little dispute with a cohabitant and the majority of my equipment, including the PC in question, got destroyed.

    However, two comments:

    #1, I reject that 'driver detective' thing altogether, from every BS driver site that offers it. One such site claims to have the driver for every single piece of hardware you google, and displays a mock download page with no actual download link except for that "driver detective" thing, which is nothing more than malware. No, I will not install it, thanks.

    #2, I had the latest drivers from nvidia's website. This has nothing to do with it, because of:

    #3, WINDOWS DRIVERS WILL NOT HAVE ANY EFFECT ON HOW THE CARD BEHAVES BEFORE WINDOWS LOADS. If I start with a cold boot, with no operating system on the drive at all, enter CMOS SETUP, then exit (causing a soft reset), the card will not reinitialize. This has nothing to do with Windows, and installing a different viru- er I mean Windows Driver will not help it.

Glad you got it fixed. Next time something like this occurs, try searching the forum of your distro (or the Ubuntu forums as they seem to have just about every error ever listed in there) as you will usually find the answer faster.

Can i put fan on pny verto geforce 6200

Yes you can and this will propably solve your issue. You can put any 5v or 12v fan that you can fit on the vga heat-sink. Do not attempt to power the fan directly from the vga fan connector. Use a normal fan that will connect on your PSU outlets. Try not to damage the VGA while doing so.
