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?

Powercolor Radeon 9550 R96 256mb Card - Lights on, noone at home!


Depends on the video card ,it might require more power ,200w is fine for onboard but add other components and the system needs more power.
Disconnect the harddrive or CD ROM drive and see if the system will start.
If it starts then you will need more power 300-400w at least but shuttle power supplies can be expensive to get.

The AGP speed (x4 -- x8 -- x2 etc etc) is probably set to a lower setting in bios and it could be set on a higher speed. it can be also set in windows by a program possibly.

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

XFX GeForce FX5200 256 MB AGP. No video


Un install the video card and remove any software that came with it including the drivers, then reboot. Install JUST THE DRIVERS and none of the extra software. Then hook up the video card and make sure you have your BIOS set to accept the video card I.E. VGA or PCI depending on what kind you have.

Problem with installation of Chaintech FX5200 P-FX20 256MB PCI


You got the names wrong, there is no PCI version of the FX5200, therefore it is AGP or PCI Express only.(doubt the later) Now asuming you havent forced the card into the wrong slot, take the modem out. Check in the BIOS at bootup if the machine has an onboard graphics card, disable that or set to boot the AGP or PCIXpress. Then manual IRQ settings. Set those to AUTO. There is a rule to PCI cards (really doubt yours is) to ALWAYS put a graphics card into the 1st PCI port on the board, most boards have labels, manual has it for sure. It will aslo say if and which pci port shares its IRQ (interrupt request) with what device on the mainboard - that conflict causes some strange things to happen later in windows... Then boot to safe mode. If it boots, check device manager for duplicate devices. delete every duplicate and reboot. Most likely it is just windows going nutz, unless there was some PCI / AGP, force insertion magic or you forgot to unplugg the power cord and the mainboard was live and had suffered some damage while changing the cards... More details would help, hope this will be of any use m8. Good luck!
