    i just installed the latest driver>169.1.is there a newer one/// thankyou

  • redchips57 Feb 04, 2008

    ihave a 430 watt power supply.the heat syncs are fairly warm.i'm not sure if it is overhaeting or not.do you think i need a larger power supply.and is there a way to put some type of cooling fan on the video card???

  • redchips57 Feb 04, 2008

    well i just had a new power supply installed.like i said it is a 430 watt supply.unfortunatly it is not a real expensive power supply. i think i paid $40.00 dollars for it.I really don't know to much about computers like you do.the process at openSUSE was a little beyond me,sorry.do you think a coolig fan of some kind would help with the heat problem???THe problem is if i remove my graphics card my monitor will go to default and i won't be able to set my resolution or color.i know there is a way to fix the default problems but i don't know how.wel dang i guess maybe i should try another card with a coolig fan on it.maybe that will help.any comments????

  • redchips57 Feb 04, 2008

    ok,i'll try your suggestion about the lids off and a fan.oh by the way the ubantu web site you suggested for the new drive was not operational,i couldn't get into it.maybe i'll try again tomorrow.i'll let you know!!!
    and one other thing ,the 169.1 driver is no longer being used or what is the problem???
    it's getting late so i'll try and see if you casn come up with another solution tomorrow.
    thanks for all the help rascal.

    there is quite alot of documentation about problems relating to the bios and drivers for this older card. goto http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA .and look under trouble shooting



    BUT FIRST OF ALL check that it is not overheating.

    upgrading the power supply may also help. The additional current drawn by the card over time, combined with higher loads when the ROM drive is operating may cause intermittent failures. What spec power supply is fitted to the box?. An upgrade here may solve all your problems.

    430 watt should do it, but there are "supplies" and then there are SUPPLIES. You know what i mean:) The card will have overtemp shutdown. If its heat related, better air circulation in the box may help. The card should handle "just too hot to touch" temps, but not excessive burning heat. Try to run it a bit cooler with the lids off(with a desk fan blowing through the box) and see if the problem remains.

Please replace the card

    computers don't freeze up at random intervals because of a lack of RAM.
    Lack of RAM would only freeze up the computer when too many programs
    are being run at once, or you try to open a resource-heavy application.

    what was wrong.
    Turn out to be caused by NVIDIA Network Access
    Manager, because of a conflict because the motherboard and the graphic
    card, I think? Anyway. Not sure it applies to you, but I'd say it's
    worth trying to go into Programs and Features and see if NVIDIA Network
    Access Manager is listed in there... and if it is, uninstall it.

    can also be this way

    The most common symptoms of a dying or damaged Power Supply Unit is
    random freeze ups at random times with no specific pattern. I recommend
    taking the computer into a qualified technician and expect to have some
    hardware replacements needed. Damaged PSUs can also corrupt other parts
    of the computer because of it sending "bad" signals (for lack of a
    technical term coming to mind).

    Like I've mentioned in the other
    comments, if RAM is not the culprit here. You can try getting the newest
    video card updates and making sure everything is "seated" properly on
    your motherboard, but I think the problem is going to require hardware
    replacements. Again, check it with a technician.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 04, 2008

    try all the solutions listed..

    let me know.. because my friend also has the same problem you had.. but we ended up with some problem with the mother board. which is now solved.

    so try step by step.

    good luck

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 04, 2008

    ha ha ha.. not due to loads..
    [when] the internal electronics of the PSU has begun to fail the
    failures are ALWAYS intermittent and tend to cause some of the most
    difficult to diagnose problems in PC repair. Whenever I have
    intermittent problems, my first guess is that the power supply is
    bad... Sometimes something bad happens and sometimes it does not.
    That's the clue for replacing the power supply.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 04, 2008

    card itself has heat dispenser inside them. surely your card will also have.
    i dont say you need a larger power supply. the power output is bad my friend.
    change the power supply unit. that will work fine for you.

    i was sayin about my friends case right.
    but replacing the power dint work for us. and atlast we ended up with replacing our mother board and ended the problem.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 04, 2008

    i shall first suggest you to get a replacement of that card. since you get problem only when the card is there why not you try changing it first?

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 04, 2008

    then first try setting up some extra fans for card specially. dont worry that investment wont go waste. even if u have a new card in future it wil improve the perfomance.

    and hence first of all install some cooling system. and if u dont get solved then final solution is to get a new card for it.

    thank you.
    good luck

As far as I can tell, you are right, there is no support for Windows 7 and this card. The card is AGP 8X, which is older technology and I don't know if you can find a AGP card that is going to be compatable with Windows 7. You could try something like this, which is windows 7 compatable:

MSI FX5200-T128 :: Hard-Freeze


You could try using the driver for the FX5200 directly from Nvidia. Maybe the MSI drivers are causing the issue. If not try using the video card in another computer and see if it works. Without testing the card or the board it is hard to say. Sometimes a weak powersupply can cause problems like this. Also make sure if there is a power connection to the video card that it is hooked up. Some video cards need additional power plug hooked up.

INSTALLATION OF Nvidia G-Force FX5200


Hello theena,

You can actually go to Nvidia's website and down load the drivers for the video card. Here is the link where you should be able to down load the software you need.

I hope this helps.

Computer freezes up


Ok so i'm going to probably get flamed for my suggestion here, but bear with me.

  1. Take out the new fx5200 video graphics card and reboot the computer. If the freezing stops, then the card itself is most likely faulty or incompatable with your particular PC, or may also simply have a fault in it.
  2. Computers that ran fine before a new piece of hardware/software was installed, can nearly always be blamed on the new device or program. Simple solution is to remove the last thing you added and work backwards from there.
  3. If the freezing still happens, i suggest that you could also have a faulty ram stick, and you can test these with a RAM testing program, but they don't always show errors the first time you run them, so it may take several test runs to show the problem.
  4. An easy solution ( if you think you may have a faulty ram stick or Dimm slot, you can try removing the stick/s from the Dimm slots 1 by 1 until the problem stops, this can mean you have either a bad slot or bad ram stick, either way you should be able to work out what the problem is fairly easily.
  5. The only other problem i know of that causes long freezes or pauses, is not enough ram - or what is called missmatched ram.

My computer freezes


You could try with reinstalling the drivers for the graphic card. Another problem could be that you don't have all the codecs needed (But it doesn't usually freeze windows, only the software). Try downloading a codec pack from the following site: http://free-codecs.com/Codec_Packs.htm
