Question about XFX GeForce FX 5200, Graphic Card

1 Answer

System not booting, after installation

On power on, system gives one long, two short beeps, after installation of FX5200.

AGP setting in BIOS is 128MB.
On booting, first screen shows Nivida FX5200, but bottom line reads 0MB, whereas it should show 128MB. Other cards also read 0MB.
Mobo is an old Soltek SL-75KAV/-X, which came new with a graphics card installed.
Driver has been downloaded for XP, but on trying to update card, installer can't find the driver.

Image is, to say the least, fuzzy.

Any ideas?

    Hi Smithbrother
    Many thanks for your suggestion.Sorry for any confusion in my using the word Installer, when XP was meant. In Device Manager, display adapters has a yellow question mark against that - and another whose name I can't remember, off-hand.


    When I go to Update Driver, the window searches, then tells me it can't install the driver, because it can't find suitable software?? Opting to install manually does no good, either.
    I know it's there, because I downloaded it; there's a shortcut on the desktop.


    What do you make of the boot display reading the correct card, but then showing 0MB. The same thing happens with an old GeForce2 card  installed.

    hi there,
    I think I have the same problem, bought a used nvidia geforce fx5200 128 mb for my celeron 2.6, motherboard MSI PM8M-V (MS-7104 v1), 1.5Gb ram.
    the computer started once, but the image had lot's of errors and the monitor was always "flickering". now when I turn on the computer it detects the graphics card but then the monitor get's all black, the computer is working, but nothing happens.
    probably the graphics card is damaged?
    thanks,
    Carlos

    I usually place it on the hard driver itself. You have to be extremely specific for the location. No folders. No shortcuts. Did you tell it exactly where the driver was located (provide path). Does it still beep?

Does anyone know if the Sparkle FX 5200 256MB DDR AGP is 1.5V? I can't boot up windows xp after installing this card. Changed the chipset from PCI to AGP... also performed a bios/cmos clear. any hints...


Hi, I have the fx5200 pci version in my computer, I went from an ati agp card to it.

All I had to do was go into bios, and go to the video settings and set it on autodetect then the motherboard autodetects the video card, configures the memory for it, as well as the irq and dma.

I then hit escape and selected save and exit.
When it reboot, it detected my new card with no problem, set it up into the bios, and allowed the system to boot up.

Now, after you get it booted up, you'll still need to install the driver pack from nvidia. You will be looking for firmware version 175.19
You may have to click on a link on nvidia's website to get to discontinued models. Download it, run it, and then reboot
Then your video card should work at all the settings available.
You will also need to install the driver for your monitor.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops


Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Cant install powercolor 9600 pro on EliteGroup 845GV-M3 mobo... Fan will run in agp express slot but hardware not found on boot up (win XP)


HI findads,

You need to make a change in your bios. Still have your manual for the 845GV-M3 motherboard?
If not you can download it at this link: http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=465&DetailName=Manual&DetailDesc=845GV-M3%20%20(V1.0)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=82&LanID=0
You will also need Adobe reader to view the pdf file. Get Adobe for free at: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

If you have already installed the 9600 AGP card, please shut down your system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Open your case & remove the 9600 AGP card. One must follow an order of sequences’ when changing graphics cards. Once removed, reconnect the power cord to the power supply & boot the system. (It’s ok not to close your case). As the system starts to boot, press the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds. The main bios menu will load. Read the instruction at the bottom of the menu which will show you how to move about in the bios.
(The mouse does not function while in the bios).
Using the manual to help change a settings.

Go to Advanced Chipset Features page 35, than into Integrated Peripherals, page 37.
Set Init Display First to [AGP]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Once your screen goes to black, press & hold the power on / off button on your case until the system shuts off.
Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Install the AGP video card. Make sure it is completely seated & even in the AGP slot. Screw it down. Before closing the case, re-check all internal power connections to every device & all data connections. (Snug fit). Close your case & reconnect the power cord to the PC. Boot your system. You should have display & windows should load.
Install the CD software for the 9600 Pro video card. Restart the PC. Go to power color & check for any driver updates for the 9600 Pro card. http://www.powercolor.com/
Before installing any update from PowerColor check windows for updates.

Everything should work out ok.
Good luck findads!

New graphics card not recognised


Peter, you need to enter your bios & make a change.
How to enter bios? Start the PC & begin pressing the Delete key every two seconds untill the display screen opens to the bios menue. Peter here at the main menue of your bios look to
Pg. 29 in your motherboard manual. If you do not have your manual download it from the link provided:
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=62&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=9
In order to move about in the Bios look at the bottom of the screen. There you will see how to move about using your keyboard.
Take your time in the bios. It can be confusing, even for me!
On pg. 30 change the Video (EGA / VGA) to AGP if available.
If AGP is not listed do not change.
Go to Pg. 35&36
Advanced Chipset Features
AGP & P2P Bridg Control Change to AGP if listed.
VGA Share Memory Size Change to 0 if possible.
The onboard/intergrated AGP uses part your system memory to function.
AGP & P2P Bridge Control
Play it safe & change to the size of memory to 256Mb.
Which matches your FX5200 memory
AGP Fast Write to Enable
AGP Driving Control set to Auto
AGP Master WS Write to Enable & same for Read.
Save & exit bios. The system will re-start.
If after your system starts back up & enters into windows & you notice you do not have video switch the cable connected to the other VGA out-put on the FX5200. Your display should show up.
Install your software for your new card.
Enjoy!
If you have troubles Pete just post back here & I'll address them.
& please vote...

AGP 8x not supported


Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?

AGP cant work and Memory issues


Are you certain that your AGP card is 4x or 8x? It seems that is the only kind this one supports. Not sure what the 2 beeps mean in post but it obviously doesn't like your AGP card. Report this info to MB customer support. There do not appear to be any jumpers to manually disable on-board AGP as it is done through BIOS settings only. Also, you might want to first install the AGP drivers using the onboard gfx and then install the Gfx card. As for the memory, I have no idea. Perhaps you could contact the manufacturer or return the MB to fry's for a replacement?
