Go to NVIDIA WEB site to download the FX Go5200 video driver. Make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version that matches the Windows version that is installed on the computer.

    Contact or E-mail NVIDIA support and ask them which driver you should use and where to download it.

Dell inspiron 8500 laptop screen goes white


hello, when the screen changes colors or stays in one color it is mostly cause of a video card problem. Does this happens only when overheated, then maybe you can blow the cpu-video card heatsink and use a base with a fan to avoid overheating. If the screen is white all the time then maybe only a 2nd monitor will help understand if this is a problem of the video card or the screen.

Dell 8600 and video card


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:

Then turn off computer, plug monitor into new video card, then start computer.
