Assuming you have set your agp slot in the cmos settings to the primary graphics controller and already had the agp graphics slot driver installed for the motherboard, try using a driver from the nvidia web site if you are having trouble with the driver that came on the cd. Use the VGA onboard graphics if you have any or fit your old card and click on the link below for XP Drivers If you still have problems then you will have to try an ATI graphics card as it just may not be compatable with your make of motherboard

I would check that your power supply is able to handle this card. This card requires a minimum 450 watt power supply. If you take the card out, I would imagine the computer will start fine. Also, verify that you plugged in the power connector into the video card. However, use a volt meter to test your power supply.

This symptoms indicate that your graphics card is overheated. You need a proper ventilation for that. Check the fan of the card if it is working properly. Uninstall the video card driver and you need to remove also the graphics card out from your computer. Replug the video card and then power on your computer and install back the drivers for it.

Hope this could help you a lot..:-) Thanks..

try downloading " Driver Magician ". This searches for and updates all drivers on your system. There is a small fee for registration but this has been a God-send for me.

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 / 256MB... Problem

Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!
