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.

Inno3D Geforce 256MB 128bit Video card


sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

COMPUTER GOES SHUTDOWN WHEN PLAYING HIGH-END GAMES


If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all.
Yes upgrade your directx to 10
and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater.
The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and
when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the
Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.

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!

Fx 5200 geforce graphic card


You did not mention if the board your running has an integrated video card on it. If it does & you have added the FX 5200 AGP you need to make a change in your bios. Set the bios to see AGP. Re-check the insertion of the AGP card. Remove the video card. Use a strong flash light & look into the AGP slot. Use canned air & blow out the AGP slot. Re-seat the video card evenly into the AGP slot. Try again.
