Question about XFX GeForce FX 5200, Graphic Card
I have Dell Optiplex 170L running XP Pro, a Geforce 5200 Card and 2 x Dell S2209W 22" Monitors.
The screen resolution on Monitor 1 is just great but the resolution on Monitor 2 is rubbish, all Windows appear stretched widthways so circles look like ovals. Both Monitor 1 & 2 are set up exactly the same on the highest resolution and all other settings are identical.
Monitor 1 is plugged into the VGA port and Monitor 2 is plugged in the DVi port.
What u can do is.... 1) Backup your Registry first
2) go to Regedit....Start>Run>Regedit
(this is assuming u have latest Nvidia driver's installed)
In global. Make a new KEY called NVTWEAK
In this key, make a new DWORD value called Coolbits now, change the value of coolbits to 3.
Now when you do into Settings for GFX and advanced settings....you will notice a CLOCK SPEED/FREQUENCY tab. Change them.....go up like 20mhz....or 30 or 50...too high will screw ur card...too low isn't worth the trouble.
So, slowly go up little by little until you notice s--- on ur screen that's dodgy..then just fall back behind that Freq.
Also....another fan taking heat AWAY from the GFX card wouldn't do any harm either.
Don't forget to rate this solution.
