Question about Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 Graphic Card
Dear Tech Support,
I hope someone can help me out because the guys at my local geek squad couldn't figure out the answer :(. My dell monitor will turn on only briefly during the windows startup and then turn off. The computer meanwhile is still running. This occurred after windows did one of those automatic updates. My monitor works just fine with another computer hooked up to it so it's not the monitor. When the guys at geek squad hooked it up to their monitor the same problem recurred. I have a strong feeling it has to do with the driver. I have the NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 and running windows xp. I have tried the following so far without much success. Uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it and the problem still recurs. The only time the monitor will turn on is on safe mode and also when I delete the driver and restart the computer and it uses the generic vga mode. However, after it detects my graphics card and installs the driver again, the problem recurs. I have a Dell Dimension 8300. If I can get this to work, the geek squad guy told me to come back to share the solution lol. Thanks for all your help.
Both of you need to do a complete over write restore and reprogram to recover the video card then install an older video driver program with the ability to lock out all updates. lala linda
