Problem with installation of Chaintech FX5200 P-FX20 256MB PCI

I tried installing the FX5200 video card into my girlfriend's Window XP running comp. Her motherboard has three PCI slots, of which, the middle one was filled with a 537EPG Intel modem card. I removed the card modem and placed it in the top slot, then placed the video card in the middle slot to allow the fan to work as efficiently as possible. When I turned on the computer, it went through START-UP(which looks fine on the monitor) , then the monitor goes completely blank. I have tried booting it up numerous times to no avail. I have tried returning the Modem card to its original slot and completely removing the video card, but still nothing. On occassion I am given different options for how I want to start-up...In safe mode, with the same configurations as beforehand, and in normal mode...I have tried all of these possibilities without any luck. I (and now she) are at wits end. Please help, this has become a case of a x-mas gift gone horribly wrong. Thanks

You got the names wrong, there is no PCI version of the FX5200, therefore it is AGP or PCI Express only.(doubt the later) Now asuming you havent forced the card into the wrong slot, take the modem out. Check in the BIOS at bootup if the machine has an onboard graphics card, disable that or set to boot the AGP or PCIXpress. Then manual IRQ settings. Set those to AUTO. There is a rule to PCI cards (really doubt yours is) to ALWAYS put a graphics card into the 1st PCI port on the board, most boards have labels, manual has it for sure. It will aslo say if and which pci port shares its IRQ (interrupt request) with what device on the mainboard - that conflict causes some strange things to happen later in windows... Then boot to safe mode. If it boots, check device manager for duplicate devices. delete every duplicate and reboot. Most likely it is just windows going nutz, unless there was some PCI / AGP, force insertion magic or you forgot to unplugg the power cord and the mainboard was live and had suffered some damage while changing the cards... More details would help, hope this will be of any use m8. Good luck!

I've got an old GF FX5200 128MB DDR TV PCI card. how to install in (both hardware & software-driver)

Hi' Sir '' the video graphic cards and DDR 128 Ram are usually plug and play, just install to any selected slots and if you have the DVI TV OUT installer , when windows starts insert CD installer then follow command and install driver.

Does anyone know if the Sparkle FX 5200 256MB DDR AGP is 1.5V? I can't boot up windows xp after installing this card. Changed the chipset from PCI to AGP... also performed a bios/cmos clear. any hints...

Hi, I have the fx5200 pci version in my computer, I went from an ati agp card to it.

All I had to do was go into bios, and go to the video settings and set it on autodetect then the motherboard autodetects the video card, configures the memory for it, as well as the irq and dma.

I then hit escape and selected save and exit.
When it reboot, it detected my new card with no problem, set it up into the bios, and allowed the system to boot up.

Now, after you get it booted up, you'll still need to install the driver pack from nvidia. You will be looking for firmware version 175.19
You may have to click on a link on nvidia's website to get to discontinued models. Download it, run it, and then reboot
Then your video card should work at all the settings available.
You will also need to install the driver for your monitor.

ASUS P5S800-VM -AGP slot.I'm trying to install a Sparkle GeForce FX5200 AGP 256 DDR and upon window XP reboot the card shows up but Windows fails to boot therefore limiting the chance to load the drivers....

Try installing the drivers before you add the card!! Also make sure that your settings in the BIOS are correct for the card that you have (or set to 'auto' if not sure).

Hope this helps

Installing an mic geforce fx5200 128mb pci-e card on my emachines t3408, and it seems that the pci slots on my computer are reversed from the pins on the card. please help!

It seems to me that your computer has an AGP slot which is a much older type of interface. AGP is much older and they no longer use them.

From the model you posted, you have 1 AGP video card slot and 2 PCI expansion slots. there are some but very few companies that do make cards for PCI that will be much better than an emachine onboard video.

But your computer will not support PIC-E

make sure to check your bios is up to date check bios to see if all the pci slots are enabled and check

Video card not installing

Did you make sure you uninstalled the original 9600gt driver, other than that you could try safe mode with networking and download/install the driver.

Un install the video card and remove any software that came with it including the drivers, then reboot. Install JUST THE DRIVERS and none of the extra software. Then hook up the video card and make sure you have your BIOS set to accept the video card I.E. VGA or PCI depending on what kind you have.
