  1. So, what is your PSU and your card?

    Of course not... :)
    I'm just coincidentally read this thread and i'm respond it...
  3. Hmm, not exactly, usually rolli59, ct1615 and jyjjy are the first respond on almost any threads in this graphic section... :)
  4. what's wrong with trying to be prompt and helping people out?

    Back to topic, any luck with what was suggested to you?
  5. i installed an old one and installed the drivers i used a pny geforce fx 5200 ddr 256 mb pci i worked fine when i pt it in and installed drivers but after i took it out is when i had all my issues
  6. it cant be over heating i have never had a problem until i downloaded the video card drivers
  7. pls its like 3 weeks old
  8. Dude, an FX5200 is prehistoric - I had one in ~2004 (but it was AGP).
    You're using a PCI one?
    So your motherboard has built-in video, and no empty vidcard slot?
    See, if you add in a vidcard (in this case nVidia) and you have been using onboard Intel graphics for example, your Windows will make a massive transformation to use the new nVidia graphics.
    Then, if you pull out the nVidia vidcard your PC will freak.
    You can't just casually switch between ATI, nVidia and Intel graphics - doesn't work that way!
    Since you can buy a brand-new GT240 vidcard for only $79 bucks, that FX5200 is completely extinct...
    Modern on-board graphics (like HD4250) would probably be more powerful.
