Re: nvidia fx 5200
The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website.
If you have already tried this my apologies.

Go to this page: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
Then, select GeForce 5 FX Series under "Product Series" Select GeForce FX 5500 under "Product" Select Your Operating System and Language, then click Search. Agree to the terms, then click Download Now, and your driver will begin to download!
Yes, you will need to install VGA drivers for the card to work properly and at its peak performance.
The drivers for your GeForce 5200 can be found here.
Just select the following from the boxes: Product Type: GeForce Product Series: GeForce 5 FX Series Product: GeForce FX 5200 Operating System: The operating system you are using on the PC that you want to put the card into. Language: English (US)
You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters. The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled. If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.
