Vertex artifacts and screen glitches

Well, i'm running an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500. It runs fine when i start using it, but after a while the screen stretches, and little blue-purple boxes show up all over the place. Would installing the drivers help it?

    Yeah, updating the drivers didn't work, so it must be overheating.

    How would i stop that? the heatsink is on the bottom of the card.

If yo have no drivers installed sure it will help.

Now, if it works fine at the begining but it messes up with time, then i think it's temperature.

Try monitoring your video card temperature under heavy load.

    The best and cheaper solution i can give is to add Fans to your computer Case.





    Search for holes and meshes to screw fans to the case. There are many sizes: 80 mm, 92 mm or 120 mm for a standard case. Also if you wish for try replacing the normal IDE flat and long cables with round cables to increase air flow.



    Also you can change the heatsink of the video card, but that is a bit hard to do because of the videocard model.



    can you give me the exact manufacturer of the vid card?

Card didn't work while fan is running


That is a really low end video card. The same card is available for $10-30 on bidding sites. Get another one or upgrade to something with more horsepower if you like games or watch video. Just make sure your motherboard will support the new video card. THe one you looks to be a standard PCI (older format).

Depends on the OS that you're running. Nvidia, however, stopped supporting this card after Vista. It might work with 7 though. Worth a shot:

Video card


The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.

I hope this answers your question,

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 / 256MB... Problem


Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!
