Question about Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Video Card Graphic
I have a Dell Dimension 5400 (4 yrs old) and the machine has slowly gotten slower over the last few months until it finally shut down Windows XP with the dreaded blue screen. At the same time, the screen got increasingly unstable, blinking off and on more and more. The error message on the blue screen indicated a problem with either the driver file nv4_disp.dll or the device itself. I downloaded/installed the latest driver from the Dell site for the display card, but this did not help at all. Same problem persists.
My fear is that the Display card has gone bad, but how do I diagnose this problem? I do not want to spend $100+ on a new card and find out that this was not the real problem....
Try downloading the driver from the nvidia instead of dell. I had a dell for 3 years and found that the drivers they provided only worked 30% of the time.

After 4 years I recommend trying all these things as your computer is cluttered up
go to c:\ drive right click on it
go to properties/tools/error check/ check now a box should popup and you tick the box fix errors reboot when windows is rebooting it will scan system files and fix any that are faulty window will then restart and load.
go to start/run type in msconfig enter go to startup stop all except for your anti virus reboot
You can then see if its running correctly
but after 4 years I suspect you will need to clean out the registry.
you will have to search net for registry cleaner there are a lot out there see if you can get a free one as some will only find errors and not fix them
