I have inno3d geforce fx5500 256 128bit ddr. i have not cd. when i download specific side inno3d geforce navidia but after downloading show message is not compatible whats problem.


Hi there!
You can go to this link and click on the downloads tab.
You can see two options there: first is to choose the specific driver to download and second is to let NVIDIA download and install the specific driver for your computer.
I suggest you try the first one if you know the specification of your computer.
If you are unsure of the things that you have on the computer, choose option number 2.
Hope this helps.

Hi, i have a newly bought FX 5500 Geforce Inno3d 256mb-AGP 8x/4x, im running it on 4x , because it is the available slot on my motherboard. Previously, im running an in-board 32mb card, and changed it to...


try going to nvidia's website and download the newest drivers for that card. these should be the newest drivers for your card: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html
sometimes games are picky about drivers. if those do not work, try looking in the driver archives and getteting older ones until you have no more issues. you can also google the game that your trying to play, and put "what drivers work for xxxxxx game" the x's being the name of your game. you can also try running it at 8x if your motherboard supports 8x. you will have to go into bios and change it manually. and also see if you can select the agp to 256

Try reinstalling the driver for this card. Please visit the manufacturer's website for the latest version of the driver for your OS. You may have mistakenly installed the wrong driver, for the wrong OS.

If that does not work, see if your AGP slot is viable, or try a different slot if available. Should that fail as well, most likely you have a faulty card.

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 / 256MB... Problem


Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!

About an old NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 256mb AGP card


Hi Jhacy, there are a few reasons why you're system would freeze when opening a game you want to play.
1. Please check the game requirements needed for PC. You're system must meet the minimal requirements. If you bought this game, the information will be listed on the game box.
If you do not have the box than go to the web site home page for the game & find the minimal requirements needed to play that game. It is not always about the video card. It is also about you're PC system. CPU strength, system memory, size & speed. Operating system, is the operating system updated?
Even over-all system peformance. Run windows system defrag to help you're primary drive re-gain some speed.
2. Make sure you're FX 5500 is using the latest software drivers.
http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_downloads_winxp_2k_32bit_91.28.html

3. Install microsoft directx 9.0c Click this link to download & install.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en

4. Each game will most likely have (Game updates/patches).
Go to the games main web page & download & install any updates and or patches.
5. Lastly, when you first open the game. There should be a section for (Settings). Lower the video settings for the game. Exzample: If you have the video settings set to High, change it/them to low or medium low.
After everything I mentioned above has been run checked, updated & installed & the game still freezes it may be time to call the makers of the game. Every game site has technical support. You can email them with you're troubles trying to play the game. Chances are after doing all the above you may not need to contact the game maker.

Good Luck Jhacy!
Please let me know if this has helped.
