My motheboard is asus m4a88t-m,corsair vx550 psu,wd 1 tb green edition .My problem is that my pc hangs while playing movies,games after i installed nvidia drivers for my graphics card.I have both windows...

First I want you to download Hardware Monitor v1.17 from CPUID. I have a Zotac GTS450 and it gets to about 82 degrees Celcius under heavy load with no problems; and 36 degrees Celcius at idle, with this I need you to see how hot your card gets before it freezes. If it is higher than 82 during gameplay then it may just be the case that it is getting too hot. Do you have sufficient fans in your case? I would also suggest a clean out of the system to get out any dust as dust can cause an increase in heat levels.

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games

well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to and downloading the newest drivers.

Geforce 6200 PCI is not running some games after installation

not sure of the game but pci graphics cards are not for gaming, that pc is a bit old- you need a pci express graphics card to game thses days. Also the 6200 is very weak as a gpu and very old- Nvidia is now in the 10th series of cards. Get a new computer definately with a core 2 duo cpu and at least a nvidia 8500gt grapgics card
