NVIDIA PCI Card Issue at system boot

OK I am about to snap with this problem. I bought a new Nvidia GeForce 5500 PCI card and installed it, disabled the on board intel video chip, and installed the drivers that came with it. This was months ago, and it WAS working fine, then for some reason today it just stopped displaying anything at all. Even the boot up sequence won't show up, I can tell Windows XP is loading up I just can't see anything. I have tried all three PCI slots, no effect. Reset BIOS by pulling the battery for a few minutes, then using the old vid chip on the board I was able to go into BIOS and set everything back up. I can get it to work fine if I use my on board chip. I bought a new flat panel 19" monitor but it worked fine on that as well. I know its not the monitor, I know its not the card because I put it in another CPU and it worked right off the bat. I am not sure if its just a BIOS setting or something worse like a virus on my system, I have noticed for the last few weeks a strange command.com box that pops up when windows starts up and goes away. I thought it was just Spybot Search and Destroy but I don't think that was it because I removed it due to some registry entry it keep deleting but couldn't actually delete. It just keeps coming back in the run once area of the registry. To top it off even though there is no trace of spybot S&D it still boots the teatimer program even though there is no directory in the Program Files folder. I have a feeling all this has something to do with my video cards sudden loss of functionality. Any ideas would be great. I can't buy a new card or cpu because I have no money.

System Spec:
1 GHz Intel Celeron
512 Megs of RAM
3 PCI slots
3 Hard Drives
250 Watt Power Supply
NVIDIA Geforce 5500 Graphics Card...

and lots of problems with it.

Re-seat the graphics card, check the temperature, if overclocked try to put it at stock or RMA the card might be faulty

Check if you have the compatible RAM installed in your computer.. another option is to reformat your operating system

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games


well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.

I lost the cd for my graphic card and cannot for life of me find on internet, here is card type : pny geforce fx 5500 ddr 128 mg agp.. anyone have a free driver ?


I don't, but Nvidia does at http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
you have a geforce 5 fx.select your os and language. this will give you the unified driver that works on all Nvidia chipsets. be advised the card you bought was private labled to PNY so the automated driver search will probably just tell you you don't have any Nvidia cards installed.
