Question about Nvidia G-Force FX5200 256M DDR 8X AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

Nvidia FX5200 DVI 1680 x 1050

This card (and many more FX-models) support 1600 x 1200 pixels on DVI. Not 1680 x 1050 however this is actually less. It does on the VGA port but not with DVI, which I prefer of course.
But it does work on Linux !! (Both Ubuntu and Mandriva) So it is possible, why not in Windows? Nvidia configuration refuses to create manually special resolutions. However after I tried the refused configuration (!) I get once a crisp and clear 1600 x 1050 screen (=not supported resolution) with small black borders but with a 1680 x 1050 desktop in it which I can shift left and right by hitting both sides with the cursor. How can I get the remaining 80 pixels ???

    It is not the windows/desktop screen which is missing the 80 pixels, it is the 'physical frame' coming from the videocard which does not contain these 80 pixels and causes black borders. In windows I have no background selected. It looks as if the videocard cannot support these 1680 pixels, but this is not true because Linux can! However in Linux some limitations, probably coming from the VGA-Bios, must be disregarded by manual settings. I cannot find how this can be done in Windows. I am not expert enough to get it done by Rivatuner or by Powerstrip.

    Exactly the same problem !
    The windows nvidia driver allows 1680x1050 only for the VGA output.
    I am not waiting for a suggestion but for the real answer from somebody who has really solved this problem,

Sounds like an issue i get but when using dual monitors. Most likeley windows just doesnt support that resolution with DVI. As you stated.

There may be some update but most likely not. There probably isnt a solution really.

Now, if the background image is not set to strech or handle that then you need to use a different background.

Some default back ground images for windows arent set to go to a certain size or dont resize correctly.

Try opening the display settings and tinker a bit if you havent already.

Pixel and Shader 3.0 Support

Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps
