    I have a gforce 5200 graphics card / boot up seemed to b taking a long time / I updated to SP2 but when I tried to update IE it had a problem with my graphics card / Microsoft solution centre stated the manufacturer didn't have a fix / I went to gforce web site and their forum scared me from installing the latest update for the driver./ It seemed it didn't work to well on the older cards/ I used an older update and it helped a bit / should I try the newest one / and will a system restore return my old settings if it doesn't work ?

    I would actually try and install the latest Forceware driver and see how it works. The FX5200 isn't that old of a card, its the Geforce 2 users that usually complain about losing some performance - and there's always going to be someone who has a problem with every driver release - after all, is NVidia really going to release a driver and keep it up if they know that it doesn't work for a majority of users? The only way you're going to know is if you try the latest driver.
