May be the card is not properly inserted in the slot. make sure it's set properly, if it's not the case swich back to the onboard VGA & chk the setting in bios for AGP adaptor & see if it's enabled.

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.

I can not play 3D games because the screen is black even i have installed driver, its does not work, i only play with 2D games,before that i still normally playing games 3D,i guess something is wrong with...

Let's see if something IS wrong with the card, or it is something else.

Some of what I may state, may sound like I'm insulting your intelligence. Please be aware that this is the furthest thing from my mind. I'm just trying to 'Cover all bases', to help you get your problem solved.

1.Sometimes we get in a hurry, and look back to see that the monitor was not hooked into the graphics card, but was accidentally hooked into the VGA port on the motherboard.

2.If this is an Nvidia GeForce FX5200, and you're trying to play a game like Crysis, it isn't going to work. Not enough 'graphics power' on that card.

(You need at least an Nvidia GeForce 9800GT to use medium to medium/high settings)

You also need a decent processor.
Celeron, Pentium 4, and Pentium D won't cut it, and you should have 2GB's of Ram Memory.

3.The best way to install a graphics card is to install the drivers off of the CD, FIRST, then turn off the computer, unplug from power, de-static yourself, and install the graphics card.

Because as soon as a device is installed on a computer using Windows, Windows breaks it's neck trying to find compatible drivers for it.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up generic drivers out of it's database. It has THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Won't be the right ones, though! You need THE drivers for that GeForce FX5200. The ones that came with it on that CD.
When you install THE drivers after you have installed the graphics card, you get a Driver Conflict.

Windows: "Which one's do I use? These or THESE?"

If this is the situation you may want to try this.

A.Turn off your computer normally. Unplug it from power. Open the case. Work on a table, and TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case.

(Your body carries Static electricity. Static will FRY OUT delicate computer hardware components! You may not see it or feel it! Computer unplugged from power, you're safe. Touch the metal frame, and your computer is safe. IF you get up, and leave for Any reason while working on your computer, when you come back TOUCH the metal frame again.

Install a graphics card while the computer is plugged into power, you'll fry out that graphics card!)

B.Remove your graphics card. You need to lay it down on a non-static area.

C.Push the Power On button in, and Hold it In for a count of Five seconds. Let go. Do this procedure Two more times.
You are clearing out CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup, back to the factory default settings.

D.Now attach the monitor cable to the VGA port on the motherboard,

E.Plug the computer back into power. Leave the case open. You'll be back in there in a few minutes. (Do Not reach inside!)

F.WAIT 1 minute, then power on your computer. After Windows loads, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
Remove the Nvidia software. ALL of it. Anything you see associated with the Nvidia name.

If you are asked to restart your computer, do so. If not, restart your computer. (Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Click on Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

G.After Windows loads, install the Drivers from the CD disk.

H.After you're done with the instllation, if you are asked to Restart your computer - NO!
Click on Restart Later. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Turn your computer off.

Unplug from Power!

I.Touch the metal frame again. Install the graphics card. Close the computer case. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

I recently bought a Nvidia GeForce 6200 256Mb AGP card to replace a 5200 card so my daughter can run her school assistance programs. its my old computer and I never had any problems with the old card...

Sounds like a Driver Conflict.
Still have the old 5200 drivers in there?

Did you install the drivers for the 6200, BEFORE you physically put the graphics card in? (Not shouting)

Let's say you did remove the 5200 drivers, before you installed the 6200 graphics card.

If you physically install the 6200 graphics card, BEFORE you have installed the drivers, Windows 'sees' a new device, and hurries up to match one of it's generic drivers.
(Windows has thousands of drivers!)

Now you come along, and install THE drivers for the 6200. Windows has a drivers conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These, or THESE?"

Makes for a garbled graphics display as you've described.

If the above is true, start over.
Go to Add/Remove Programs, and Remove the Nvidia software. All of it that has Nvidia next to it.
(THIS, is provided of course, that the computer HAS Integrated Graphics, and does not just use a graphics card. You will be plugging the monitor, into the VGA port in the I/O area, on the back of the computer temporarily, if this is true, and this computer has Integrated Graphics)

(Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs) If there is more than one Nvidia program listed, Do No restart the computer each time you remove one. Do Not restart. Read on)

After all Nvidia software has been removed, close Add/Remove Programs, close Control Panel, and return to the desktop screen.
Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 5 seconds. (Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005) Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Open the case. TOUCH the metal frame of the case to relieve your body of Static electricity. Remove the 6200 card. Plug the monitor into the back of the computer into the VGA port. Leave the case open, you'll be going back in there.

Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn it on. After Windows has fully loaded, install the GeForce 6200 drivers from that CD disk. Do Not restart.
Shut down normally.

Unplug from power. Touch that metal frame again. Install the GeForce 6200 card. Close the case. Plug the monitor into the GeForce 6200. (You did plug the monitor into the 6200 the first time, right, and not the VGA port?)

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Go to Start>Nvidia>Nvidia control panel, and set the settings.

Hi, since you mentioned you installed an MSI card & it worked well. I can assume you changed the bios & to boot to the AGP rather than the Integrated 3D video. This is good. Notice the message you got from Nvivia. It could not locate any compatible drivers. This can indacates 1 of 4 reasons.
1. The 5200 was not completely incerted into the AGP slot.
2. The AGP slot is dirty & needs cleaned.
3. Nvidia software was installed but previouse graphics software was not removed (un-installed) before the installation of the nvidia software.
4.The card is bad.
Suggest you download the latest driver software from Nvidia.

GeForce FX 5500-picture flickers

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
