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!

Toshiba x205-sli1 how many video cards does it take?


In my mind it isn't correct.

SLI = Scalable Link Interface,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Link_Interface

SLI means to have two, or more, graphics chipsets teaming up on the graphics task.

Two or more graphics chipsets used in an SLI -> CONFIGURATION.

Scroll down, read under -> Caveats

"In an SLI configuration, cards can be of mixed manufacturers, card model names, BIOS revisions or clock speeds.

However, they MUST be of the same GPU series (e.g. 8600, 8800) and GPU model name (e.g. GT, GTS, GTX).

There are rare exceptions for "mixed SLI" configurations on some cards that only have a matching core codename (e.g. G70, G73, G80, etc.), but this is otherwise not possible, and only happens when two matched cards differ only very slightly, -> an example being a -> differing amount of video memory <-, stream processors, or clockspeed.

In THIS case, the -> slower/lesser card <- becomes dominant, and the other card matches."

Meaning if one graphics card has 256MB of graphics memory, and the other graphics card has 512MB of graphics memory; it will operate at the SLOWER graphics card, graphics memory, rate.

In otherwords at the rate of the 256MB graphics memory, graphics card.


The LS-3443P has 512MB of graphics memory,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-X205-512M-Video-Graphics-Card-Heatsink-LS-3443P-/370670017623?nma=true&si=1z6WXqlGkouFmRzOMNgmqRW8SK0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

The LS-3449P has 256MB of graphics memory,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-X205-256MB-Video-Card-W-Heatsink-LS-3449P-/130789325867?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1e73a6bc2b

Point;
Why would a laptop manufacturer go to the trouble of using two MXM style of graphics cards; in an SLI configuration; and use one with 256MB of graphics memory, and one with 512MB of graphics memory; only to have the graphics run at 256MB?

Doesn't seem logical.

Logic TO ME dictates using two ALIKE graphics cards, (MXM)

For me I concur with your thinking, and believe the 256MB unit is wrong.

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-X205/take-apart-laptop-1.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MXM

http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/unavailable-product.jsp?poid=403632

GeForce 8600M GT uses the Code Name G84, GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_8M_.288xxxM.29_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_8_Series#GeForce_8600M_Series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU


Could I be wrong? YES.
It may be that the two ARE configured to run together, and have a total of 768MB graphics memory.

Again, though, To Me it doesn't follow the Scalable Link Interface, basic technology.

It MAY be that -> BOTH graphics cards need to have the top of the GPU, (Graphics Processing Unit, or simply - graphics chipset), cleaned; and new fresh Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.

If a Thermal Pad is used, it is carefully peeled off, plus top of GPU, and copper Cooling Tube plate cleaned; and a new piece of Thermal Pad is used, PLUS apply a sparingly amount of new, fresh Thermal Paste.

Also using Anti-Static Precautions, (For everything, of course. Standard procedure), I would use a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins of the MXM graphics cards; on BOTH sides. Use compressed air for computers, in the MXM graphics card's slots; on the motherboard.

IF one MXM graphics card is bad, you should be able to remove it, and just use the good one.

Perhaps this was a problem in the past; and whoever had it could only afford the 256MB LS-3449P.

In searching I found one place that wanted $549.00 for the LS-3443P!

Just my thoughts, Michael.

Where is my graphics card


Laptops usually don't have a separate graphics card (unless they are very new or very high end). They have a graphics chip that is part of the motherboard.
..In other words: you can't replace them or fix them if something is broken.

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; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_sink

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

B) GPU; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

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),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_Graphics_Processing_Units#PCIe_.28X3xx.2C_X5xx.2C_X6xx.2C_X10xx


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 }

Computer dell latitude D610 built in 2006 replacing the viedo card how too's and also what can I do to mabe upgrade this veido card? and dose anything else need to be updated at the same time as the...


Sorry Jimmy, the Dell Latitude D610 Notebook PC uses Integrated Graphics.
There is no graphics card to upgrade.

Your Dell either came with a form of the Intel GMA graphics chipset , or the ATI Radeon Mobility X300 graphics chipset.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd610/en/ug_en/specs.htm

Either/Or

The way Dell states it, (And also this is for a LOT of laptop manufacturers), is that you have either the option when purchasing, of having an Intel GMA chipset for graphics, or discrete graphics of the ATI Radeon Mobility X300, for graphics.

Discrete being the word that fools people. Makes them think it has a dedicated, removable graphics card, when in reality it is a graphics chipset soldered directly to the motherboard, and is not upgradeable.

Primer:
GPU
Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Essentially the 'graphics engine'.

A GPU can be installed directly on the motherboard, (Integrated Graphics), OR installed on a removable graphics adapter card. (Graphics Card is shortened for graphics adapter card)

Integrated Graphics borrows from the system resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
This is why programs, for example games, that use a lot of graphics 'power', do not perform well on a computer with Integrated Graphics.

{Read - programs that use a lot of graphics power. Such as some of the newer games. Integrated graphics, depending on what graphics chipset it is, CAN run some games. Ones that are not very graphics intensive}

A dedicated graphics card has it's own processor, and graphics ram memory. Does not need to borrow from the system resources.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The graphics chipset in your Dell Latitude, is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain the BGA surface mount;
Let's use the older Intel Pentium 4 processor that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
The bottom of the processor has contact pins. (478 of 'em)
The processor socket has matching socket holes for the contact pins. (478 of 'em)

With the BGA surface mount there are no contact pins. In place of them are Solder Balls.
There is no socket, or socket holes on the motherboard.
There are Copper Pads.

The graphics chipset is set into place with the Solder Balls lining up on the motherboard's Copper Pads.
Then heat is applied at a specified temperature, and length of time.

The solder balls melt which solders the graphics chipset to the motherboard. (To the Copper Pads)

Removal and replacement is properly performed with a BGA Rework Machine.
Costly, and not something you'll find a local shop performing.
{The machine is costly, and the operator needs to be S-K-I-L-L-E-D. Cost of having a chipset replaced is Ouch!}

There are two ways you can upgrade your graphics.

1) If you have the motherboard model with a form of Intel GMA chipset attached, you can purchase the motherboard that has the ATI Radeon Mobility X300, and install it.

2) Purchase a laptop with better graphics.

{Not trying to be snide}

Hi when I try to install vtx radeon hd 5450 graphics card no display is shown on monitor and all fans run fast computer appears to be booting but can't tell. compaq sr1519uk with MSI MS-7184 mbo,...


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.

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
