I have a dell 2350 I just installed a geforce fx 5200 graphics card when i turn the computer on I have no task bar and when I click on a desktop icon I hear the music from what I clicked on but i am still looking at the desktop. any ideas?
Sounds like the new driver has mis-identified your desktop and/or monitor parameters, or possibly it is conflicting with remnants of an old graphics driver. I would go to Add/Remove in the Control Panel, and uninstall every graphics driver there, nVidia and/or ATI. Then open the Device Manager and uninstall the video driver and the monitor driver, then reboot, and insert the installation CD for this new graphics card, and reinstall. I hope that helps...
You will have to re-select your desired screen resolution.

Yes, you will need to install VGA drivers for the card to work properly and at its peak performance.

Just select the following from the boxes: Product Type: GeForce Product Series: GeForce 5 FX Series Product: GeForce FX 5200 Operating System: The operating system you are using on the PC that you want to put the card into. Language: English (US)

sounds like yo had the same Probles that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the montior cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is runing with your card you can also see that fron the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped
You need to open up your pc tower and insert it into an open slot. Do this with the computer turned off and UNPLUGGED. Once installed, turn you computer on, but still plug monitor into your old video card. Assuming you're using XP or Vista? It should detect your new card and install the drivers automatically. If not, you need to install on your own. Use the CD that came with the card, if you got one. Or you can download the driver here: http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/nvidia-geforce-fx-5200.html
Then turn off computer, plug monitor into new video card, then start computer.
