If I am not mistaken your video card is an AGP 8X card. If you would like to stay with Nvidia, they have an FX 5700 and FX 5900 series card that would be a nice upgrade. The FX 5900 is better...twice as much memory (256MB) as your present card and twice the pixels per clock.

You can also go to some 512MB cards. Here is a sampling from Tiger Direct. Most are under $100. There are boxes you can compare several together. Read the reviews also.

The latest driver 175.19 for geforce fx5500 not working have tried everything poss. i have other techs working on the prob too! they must have given up in frustration - like im about to.


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

First, look at the card and make sure it's actually an Nvidia Geforce FX 5200. Of so, then you probably installed the wrong drivers for the card. Make sure you go to the Nvidia website and download the correct drivers for the card after deleting the ones already installed. Installing the incorrect drivers could cause Windows to report the wrong type of card is installed in your PC.

Nvidia geforce FX 5200 having poblems booting pc....


as your primary pc now has a working graphics card . I would guess your graphics card is fried in all honesty there is really no hope in repairing it especially for the cost of one of those cards, if you are simply using your second pc for non graphic intensive apps then I am sure you could find an ol pci grpahics card down the local dump for next to nothing hope this helps.
