    It's me again. :)

    Would anyone happen to have drivers for, or know where I can get drivers from for an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 for Windows XP? Thanx.

    Will do, but I think my co-worker tried that. Any other suggestions just in case?

    Have tried nvidia.com, even tried the drivers off of the disk. Still have problems.

    What are the problems you're having? Those are the official drivers that nVidia releases, and they should not have any problems with them...chances are, it's something else that's the problem.

    I have the same exact video card you have. I just got it about one month ago, and installed all the drivers fine. It works great. Perhaps you still have the drivers from your other video card on there or you have integrated graphics, which you must turn off. Try removing the drivers from the other graphics card if you had one, otherwise find out how to disable the integrated graphics. This is usually located at the makers website.

    Sorry about that. :)

    The card is listed in device manager under "Other Devices", then "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". And it has an exclaimation mark over the question mark. The graphics controller for the board is disabled, this I know by the red X in front of the name. My co-worker began the work on the computer, and when I took a first look at it, that is what I found.

    Info helps...

    You disabled the on-board video within Windows XP itself... you need to disable it on the BIOS level (or rarely, a jumper).

    1 - what kind of PC is it (CPU / Mobo and brand-model)
    2 - What kind of 5200 is it? (PCI or AGP)

    Im gathering its a PCI system as AGP onboard video systems will disable (usually) onboard video when an AGP card is installed. You should enbable the onboard video with Device manager.

    Locate your manual about the BIOS and disable it.

    i might have an issue like that on my computer, and ive been looking for a solution for a while. i have the same video card too, but after i got my new power supply so my computer would turn on, the video card wouldnt play games any more and sometimes would just randomely not work. it turns losing the signal or something for my monitor, so the monitor thinks the computer is turned off or in standby, and then it does the same. it always does this when i start a game too. the computer is still "on", but any music or sound playing starts to repeat like a broken record. Im using an AGP card too. My card used to work fine, too
