    Hey all. According to my device manager, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 5200GT graphics card. There's no yellow circle with an exclamation point/question mark, so I assume it's installed properly. But when I look to see if the adapter shows up from the Advanced tab from Settings via right clicking off the desktop, nothing shows up.....

    Theres 4 or 5 things underneath the adapter, but they all say "unrecognized" or "unregistered" or something like that, I just forget the exact text. Any thoughts/fixes? Thanks.

    Did you install the ChipSet drivers for that board?

    Uhmm...maybe? Heh heh. I'm not the best when it comes to the graphics end. I know that I've updated the mobo with the nForce drivers to get most of my devices running, but I think thats the only thing I've done.

    I would assume that I would need to go back to the NVIDIA site again to download the drivers for a 5200 card then, correct? I feel like I've done that before though, and I got some whacky error message.....

    If thats not the case, then what else could be causing that?

    Look in the Device manager under network adapters and see what is installed. If nothing is there, then there should have been a Yellow ! next to the device.
