Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (gateway) graphics card

Hi - my computer randomly keeps having what seems like maybe a graphics problem. It will suddenly have fuzzy colored lines and rectangle boxes all over the screen and the computer stops responding. Is this a graphics card problem or something else - maybe corrupted system files?
Also rebooting makes it return to normal. There was also a problem with the computer just rebooting itself after flashing back and forth between desktop and black screen but that seemed to have stopped after recovering some system files that had been deleted. Could the 2 problems be related? My next step was to reinstall windows or at least scan for and repair any corrupted system files - would this be the correct thing to do? Have already run spyware, virus, rootkit and malicious software scans. Also ran hijack this.

    The monitor is new. I already blow dust out of the computer periodically so it is not full of dust. Also updated the drivers already when first noticed the problem. Going to try the screen on another PC and see if same thing happens and will try reseating the graphic card as you said.

    Thanks for your help.

This computer comes with a Nvidia FX5200 so this tells me that it can support any AGP8X Graphics Card.

Here is a list of compatible GeForce cards for this PC's.
GeForce 6 Series - (GeForce 6200, GeForce 6600GT, GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 LE)
GeForce FX Series - (GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900, GeForce FX 5900 XT, GeForce, GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, GeForce FX 5700, GeForce FX 5700LE, GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce FX 5500)
GeForce 4 Series - (GeForce 4 Ti and GeForce 4 MX)GeForce 3 Series - (GeForce 3, GeForce 3 Ti 500 and GeForce 3 Ti 200)
GeForce 2 Series - (GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce 2 Ti, GeForce 2 Pro, GeForce 2 GTS and GeForce 2 MX series)

You should already have a GeForce FX5200 so better than that is the 6600 and 6600GT.

I have a GeFORCE FX 5200 PCI card, and onboard graphics. I had to restore my system, and cannot find the user manual. If it was available online, I'd follow the steps myself, but I'll settle for a quick...


You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters.
The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled.
If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.

Here the manuals:

Nvidia fx 5200

The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. If you have already tried this my apologies.

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.
