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.

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.

I cant see the video on my computer

You need to install DVD software to view DVDs on your computer, and play them with a DVD player instead of a CDrom.
Depending on the age and operating system of your computer, you may or may not have this capability built in. Please see this article.and for playing DVDs with Windows Media Player click here
You can check the status of devices installed in your computer by going to control panel>system> hardware>device manager and open the plus sign next to DVD/CD ROM drives. If one of the drives listed has DVD written next to it then you have the capability to play them, but not the right software installed,
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

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.

XFX GeForce FX5200 256 MB AGP. No video

Un install the video card and remove any software that came with it including the drivers, then reboot. Install JUST THE DRIVERS and none of the extra software. Then hook up the video card and make sure you have your BIOS set to accept the video card I.E. VGA or PCI depending on what kind you have.

Monitor in default

I think the first problem was that you did not load the drivers for the on-board video. And the problems you are having now may also be due to not loading drivers - in this case the chipset drivers for the motherboard. If you go to the vendors web site for the machine or motherboard, they should have all the drivers you need to get your machine running properly. If you give us some info on the brand of machine or mobo, we can then tell you where to get them.

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:
