I have this Gefore FX 5500, for like 6 months i've been playing 3d games using this graphic card i don't seem to have any problems with it, but when i stopped playing 3D games i've been having problems with my screen, after an hour using my pc, the screen would go blinking for like 3 secs and screen would go blank and pc won't respond i have to restart and it would go back to normal but after sometime it would go black again and sometimes a portion of the screen, like half of it, would go black then pc froze.. i had it checked the technician just said about resetting the VGA and it will go back to normal, but i'm still having the same prob...
Same solution as earlier user. fx 5500 has conflicts with audio driver so try uninstalling it.also disable fastwrites in bios as well as in graphics properties advanced troubleshoot tab, disable write combining.Hope this helps.

Try using the pc while you are in POST press Pause at startup. if it persists then its your card. then do the following
-Clean the contacts with an eraser. also check your drivers.

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 nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.
Have you installed the latest driver? Uninstall the old one and install new one after reboot. Don't install the 64bit one at the top asit's beta,good luck John http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=130&prod_no=719
what os system and did you upgrade
some games won't play properly unless you have mozilla foxfire
you can do a windows update and update directx
if this is an xp game and your using it on vista may not be compatible
let me know
please rate me
Just so yo don't void your warranty send it back for repairs or at least talk to someone at the computer manufacturers website. Many of the websites have a chat so you can talk to them immediately. It can't be anything else that I could think of except your video card. Double check the video card type in Device manager.
