It's never 100% "safe" to update even with good drivers. You'll want to take precautions like making sure you have a backup copy of the old drivers just in case something goes wrong and you are not able to revert to the old drivers. As long as you are getting the drivers off of the official website for the exact card you have, and the operating system you are using is supported, it's usually pretty safe.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?


HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

Mark

No display


You may need to go into the BIOS setup and switch it to use the AGP bus port.

How do know what graphics card is compatable with my motherboard


Regarding your MSI K8N NEO2-Platinum (MS7025) Motherboard, it should have one AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 1.5V 4X/8X slot and an nVIDIA® nForce3 Ultra Chipset. There are a few links below I think will greatly help you.
Sincerely,
CBR2009

Click here for information on the motherboard:
http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=k8n_neo2_platinum

Click here for information on the nVIDIA nForce Ultra Chipset.
http://www.nvidia.com/page/pg_20030918437537.html
(a snippet from that page)
Connectivity - AGP interface
Supports AGP3.0 - 0.8 V signaling for 8× and 4× with Fast Writes data transfers
Supports AGP2.0 - 1.5 V signaling for 4×, 2×, and 1× modes with 4× and 2× Fast Writes data transfers
Supports graphics address remapping table (GART) features
The AGP3.0 8× 533 MT/s (million transfers per second) interface provides the user with the ability to upgrade the external graphics card, thus avoiding obsolescence. An external AGP add-in card achieves higher performance than it would on existing platforms.
AGP interface is backward compatible with the AGP2.0 specification.
Click here for AGP information:
http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_AGP.html
And last, but not least YES!!, there is a WIKI page on the AGP.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerated_Graphics_Port
(a snippet from that page)
As of 2009 [update], few new motherboards feature AGP slots. No new motherboard chipsets are equipped with AGP support, but motherboards continue to be produced with older chipsets that have AGP support. PCI Express allows for higher data transfer rates, has more robust full-duplex support, and also supports other devices.

Slow scrolling after instlalling nvidia geforce 6600 update drive


Download & run this Nvidia driver cleaner from Guru3d.com: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745

Afterwards, install these older tweaked Nvidia drivers from Guru3d.com:

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers


There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)
