Question about Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 Graphic Card

1 Answer

Graphics Card Since i see u are the graphics card expert u might be able to help. I think something is wrong with the GPU because a lot of 3-d applications have weird stuff on the screen. I think i need a new graphics card. My mother board has 5 PCI slots and 1 AGP slot, i am not sure which one my graphics card is but i think it is PCI. I do not know what caused the problem in the first place, overheating?, and if was overheating i do not know what would be a good way to solve it. And would getting a new graphics card solve the problem, o ya i got a NVIDIA Geforce fx 5200. I don't know if their might be something physicaly wrong with the card.

Its the AGP slot where its in most likely. IF there iw weird stuff on the screen when running 3d apps that can either be a hardware problem or a driver problem. Try updating the drivers first. Most likely the problem is not hardware yet.

It will cost you around 60 for half decent RAM. As for the GPU, it's a hassle. You would be better off just building a Desktop. You need an express adapter and PSU as well as the GPU!

Gigabyte GV-R687OC-1GD artifacts in screen

If you are getting pixelation or blocking on your screen, I would suggest that you try with a different graphics card or with the graphics card removed. The symptom is common with a graphics card using the wrong drivers as well as a faulty GPU.

Auto shutdown broblem of mircomax X600, please solve the problem

1) What does the graphics card use for cooling? Passive or Fan?

If it is passive, and has no fan mounted to it, it is cooled with just a Heatsink attached to the GPU, (Graphics Processing Unit), and uses case cooling to cool it.

A) Heatsink;

The heatsink style used for a graphics card, does not stand as tall as a Heatsink used for a Processor.


If the Heatsink, and rest of the graphics card are covered in dust, etc, the GPU will overheat, and the graphics card will shut down.

2) Observe the age of the graphics card.
I just had an ATI Radeon X600X graphics card go out on me. It is at least 8 years old.

ATI made the GPU. The Radeon X600.
(It's AMD ATI now)

The Radeon X600 chipset is part of the Radeon R300 chipset series. (And also uses a PCI Express x16 connector),

Actual exact code name of the GPU on your graphics card, is either the RV370, or RV380.
Looking at the chart, and using what graphics card you have, you can determine what chipset it is.

{ I'm also running a 22 inch wide screen monitor, and a 26 inch LCD HDTV for a monitor.
Dual monitors. Maybe that pushed the GPU over the edge }

Hi Dave,

1. Have you ever tried testing your VTX HD5450 GPU to another system or try bringing it to the store where you purchased it.
2. After removing the VTX HD5450 GPU, did your Nvidia 8400GS worked? - If it works there might be a compatibility issue between your MOBO and HD5450 GPU if the card is good.
3. I think there is nothing to configure on your bios regarding Graphics setting because your Nvidia 8400GS worked without any problems.
4. Did you check the VGA/ DVI cable and power cable if it is plugged to the proper ports. There are times that even tough we are that good we miss something.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My graphics card is xfx 8600 gts my card problem is when i start my pc the display logo of my m/b is crash color and red boxes on the screen then my pc restart when system reach windows. So please help me

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

I have a nvidia geforce 9400 Gt graphics card how can i overclock

Read this...

You're not going to get a lot out of that card, it's pretty stripped down being a 9400. Anyways, download Rivatuner then after it detects your video card it will update your registry which will allow it to manipulate your video card.

You then use it to increase your Memory and Core clocks, and also the shader clock in VERY small steps. Increase it by perhaps 20MHz then try playing the most visually demanding game that you own and play it for like 5 to 10 minutes and watch for anything out of the ordinary. When you've pushed your card too high there are obvious signs, like random pixels flashing across the screen, textures showing up wrong (colours where they shouldn't be), or your game can simply lag or crash.

Also download Speedfan and monitor your GPU temperature closely. See what it idles at normally, then use Rivatuner to increase your fan speed to somewheres around 75% and make sure that the temperatures don't pass 70C.

Overclocking voids warranties and you can damage your graphics card if you push it too hard. You have to be careful and watch for signs that it's being pushed too hard. Also, you have to make sure that you set your clock speeds back to normal when you don't need the extra power. It's easier on your card then running it at 120% or something permanently.

Hope it helps...Good luck

Upgrade from a 64MB nVIVIA GeForce4 Ti4200 graphics card.

This card is really good for an AGP card. It had 512 mb of DDR2 memory.If you are using Photoshop You need to look at upgrading to the max amount you can get into you machine.Photoshop is built to use as much memory as you will allow. I think you can go to 3 gigabyte of standard DDR NOT DDR2. Also, XP has Service Pack 3 now so download that from Microsoft's site. Hope this helps.

Graphics Card Problem

im sure that is AGP, because we have the same video card on my other computer. your PCI slot is for sound cards, link modem, etc.. whenever your playing games make sure that you put the video option in to medium or low because that starts the heat of your video card when you use it into the limit. Try to cool the video card if its happening the heat again by using a fan and aim it to the video cards.

Others are overclocking their video cards to push the capability of the video card over the limit. their using a cooling fan or a tube like to maintain the temperature of their video cards. hope that helps

Flashing poligons

regarded tsakom, that is result of overheating the GPU, you can try 3 of the following: 1 - remove your graphics card and cleanse the fan from any dust or debries 2 - add 1 or 2 drops of wd40 (yes oil) to the cards fan rotor. 3 - add a bigger, fan positioned to push cold ar agains the cards GPU. Preferebly on that shift the ar on and against all the board, and never pulling it out. You cool something pushing cold air against it, never removing the hot air, if you do that, you only fuel the heat even more.
