    I have a nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 - 128MB Video Card and I just recently updated my drivers from the nVidia website. The drivers they provide now, support "All" GeForce Cards. However, upon doing this I began experiencing problems; my monitor blacks out for a couple of seconds and then come back on whenever something graphic intensive occurs, stretching a window, or max and min windows. Also, I can no longer play games, there is an extreme amount of lagg. When I uninstall the driver the problem goes away, but then I am left with Generic VGA Drivers and it makes simple tasks hard (i.e. I cannot scroll easily in webpages). I tried to roll back to my last drivers, but it will not go back. I have tried going to the MS Update Website and installing the drivers they provide, because they are an older version. When I download them, it fails to install. I have disabled Norton Anti-Virus, during each install. I am stuck and not sure what to do. Please Help!

    this version have worked well for me:


    (assuming you are using windows xp)

    is that the version you downloaded?

    before you install these go to add / remove programs and uninstall the previous invidia drivers-
    after the new ones are installed try playing with the settings
    go to Display Properties - Settings - Advanced -
    click on Monitor - try changing the refresh rate.
    click on the Nvidia tab- there you can experiment with more settings
