Unplugging the fan on a GeForce FX 5200

Q: Unplugging the fan on a GeForce FX 5200

Is this a good idea? My fan is making all kinds of noise, I have already bought a replacement card from newegg.com, so the issue is only valid for a few days.

If I unplug the fan, will my card/system be ok?

Preferred Solution: Unplugging the fan on a GeForce FX 5200

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unplugging the fan on a GeForce FX 5200

Not a good idea.

If it has a fan it probably means it produces a lot of heat. The heatsink alone might be okay if you don't do anything GPU intensive, but you'll probably encounter overheating problems during gaming.

I dont care about games to much but I need the card for some 3d modeling and animation with maya soo.... any help would be great. Thanks

Hey guys, how accurate is this:


They rate the 5200 card higher , then the 5500 card. Now obvious in terms of memory, the geforce 5500 wins, 256MB. But i was just curious on what you guys thought.

A:Geforce 5500 256MB vs Geforce 5200 128

The only other good one was the 5600. (hard to find)

Which of those two card's would be better for very light gaming (Some 04 and 05 Sports Games) and other than that just regular XP use? My old FX 5200 was a 128mb card with a 200mhz clock speed and the new 6100 has 425mhz clock speed. Any Help?

A:Integrated Geforce 6100 or old Geforce FX 5200

If you have lots of system RAM, then the 6100 is probably the best choice. You'd probably need at least a gig of RAM though.

If you only have 256, or 512, the 5200 might be the better choice. Best idea is to test your games with both setups, and see which plays better.

I just built a new pc. I am using an MSI mother board with 8xAGP.

I have an AMD Athlon XP 2500

heres my issue.

I installed the AGP x 8 Graphics card with the drivers and restarted the PC. After that the display comes on but everything is slow (window dragging and stuff, choppy graphics) I looked at the properties of the Geforce FX 5200 and found that it had a code 10 error which sayts the device could not start. I iunstalled the drivers from the NVIDIA website asnd still the same error.


A:GeForce FX 5200 help

First look in the BIOS and see what the AGP transfer rate is set at. If it's AUTO make it 8X.
2. I assume that you already installed the chipset drivers ( as in newest ones , not the one that came with the motherboard)
3. I assume that you don't have any other video device inside ( as in a secondary video card, or onboard video ). If you do , take it out , or disabled it.

What is your motherboard? Does it have integrated graphics? If so, did you wipe out the drivers before installing the new card?

Hi, I have been getting an old PC up and running its using XP.

The problem is when I connect it to my sons Samsung 19" TV/Monitor it doesn't work.

(Works fine with this 22" novatech monitor but this is for my main PC )

It worked to start with but the font was to big something weird like 696 X 496 and in the display settings I couldn't amend this.

I tried installing a new driver. Now that is installed it won't show anything but a message saying "Mode not supported" and help on where I should go from here. ( just for info it does work if I connect my novatech monitor )

Many Thanks

A:Geforce FX 5200

Check the user manual for supported resolutions.

TV/monitors are often limited to standard TV resolutions (ie: 480/720/1080 @ 60hz). Monitors with built-in TV tuners are different, and often function the same as a standard monitor. In any case, check the user manual for specifics.

i added an e-GeForce FX 5200

but when i installed the driver from DriversGuide.com an error comez up sayin that the hardware is not connected or the driver doesnt support the hardware

error message:

"The NVIDIA Setup could locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

A:help wit e-geForce FX 5200

Why on earth would use a driver from DriverGuide for an Nvidia card?!?! Only use DriverGuide for obsolete or no longer supported hardware. Half the stuff on DriverGuide is useless garbage that aren't even drivers.

Go to Nvidia's website and use the correct and proper driver. Here's the link: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

You must make sure the card is installed already as a Geforce card or with the Standard VGA driver. If you cancelled the pop-up that came up when Windows detects the card the driver will not install.

Hey all,

I bought a new Dell computer nearly a year and a half ago. It's quite the machine: 3.02GHZ, 1GB Ram, 80 GB HD, WinXP, lots of software doodads, etc. It also came with a GeForce 5200 FX graphics card. Now after a year and a half, naturaly i hace come accross many viruses on this computer, and being as lazy as i am, i frequently refresh the computer.... The computer came with installation disks that made everything really easy, so it wasn't a problem... Then it got interesting...

One day i was sittin arround playing Lineage 2 when all of a sudden the game froze... so i Ctrl+Alt+Del ed out of it and kept trying to play it again, but it kept freezing... so did Dawn of War... so did Diablo 2... so did WoW... so i figured something must be seriously wrong with my comp, so of course, i refreshed it... then it got crappy...

I refreshed the computer like i had done over and over and over, everything looked great, got the operating system up and running, got the networking stuff together, but something wasn't right. There was an odd graphical twitch in the monitor. Figuring it was simply because of the new drivers, i restarted the computer (which i was suppose to do anyway). When the computer booted up, the monitor leaped into all sorts of fancy colors, clicked off and on, and went... well... i thought it was gunna explode, how bout that...

I just installed a XFX GeForce 5200 AGP video card in a Dell Dim XPS t700r with Win2000. Seems to work great except when you maximize a window the screen appears to "bounce". By "bounce" I mean it changes size slightly for a second. I made sure I have the latest drivers. Have tried many different resolutions without a change. This is a 2X machine but it is supposed to be backward compatible.

A:XFX GeForce 5200 Problem

According to your video cards web sight minimum requirements you need at least a 250 Watt Power supply and Dells are notoriously under powered more then likely this is an very old computer (2X AGP) and you probably have a 150w to no more then 230w power supply. http://www.xfxforce.com/product_view.php?sku=PVT34KNT

I have installed Vista Ultimate On one of mine computers without service pack 1
When i Install nvidia drivers 96,85 ver Or older After I Get a Blue Screen But I Cant see What It Saying there It closes quickly and Reboots ... After that i Login in Vista But after Some 1 minute aproximatelly it reboots again showing that BlueScreen And i Think It says Somthing about "0x00000001" error But I am Not SURE!!!
So Is there A solution like Installing Service Pack 1 Might solve that ?

A:GeForce 5200 Problem

I think others will suggest to install SP1 first as Vista was a little on the iffy side w/o it. My x64 Premium came already with SP1 included this is why I was willing to install it.

I know there is a way for you to disable auto-restart but I am not sure how to do that in Vista so I'll let the gurus chime in on this one since, w/o the error code, they won't be able to help much.

Also, make sure you are using the "Run as Administrator" when installing the new drivers and also make sure you have uninstalled whatever drivers you have now.

Hey all, well I sorta have question which I need answered and all help would be appreciated... So.. basically, I was wondering, if I get a 128MB Geforce 5200 (mobo only uses PCI T_T and thats the only card available where I can buy it at =/) would it be able to play WoW at the LOWEST settings at 1024x768 fullscreen res at least smoothly? I read about persons getting between 25-35 fps.. which would be wayyyy better than my integrated chipset...

I have a 2.4 GHz P4 and 1.25GB RAM, and with the integrated it would run WoW at the same settings mentioned at around 10-15 fps outside and 25fps inside instances and such...

So basically will the 5200 perform better than my Intel 82845? I at least want like 10-15fps in raids and such... Once again any help appreciated...

A:Question about the Geforce 5200

Most 5200's used a 64bit memory interface that pretty much crippled gaming performance but you might be able to find one thats 128bit. Have you looked on Ebay? You could probably get a cheap AGP nVidia 6600GT or 6800, maybe even a 7800GS.

Yesterday I installed a Geforce 5200 on my computer. After properly installing drivers and reseting, it worked well for 5 minutes or less, but then something went wrong and the screen started flickering, (an obvious signal of wrong graphic card behavior) the CPU stopped working so I had to restart. The next time I turned on the computer I opened Asus Probe (system monitoring utility) and it said that the 3.3 voltage was running at 2.6~2.78 (i opened asus probe before installing the geforce and every value was OK). I tried with other monitoring software and I got the same results, even within the BIOS.
After that, the computer kept working with the same errors until I removed the card and used the onboard video, after doing so it started working normally as always.
It most sounds like a PSU problem, but it's pretty weird because i'm using a 400W power supply with no PCI or AGP devices installed, just 2 CD/DVDRW drives, 1 floppy drive, 1 HDD and nothing else.
So the problem is obviously when I plug the card. BTW, the card worked fine on other P4 computer. I don't really know what to do. Should I buy a new more powerful PSU?

System Specs: Mobo: Asus A7S8X-MX // CPU: AMD Sempron 2400+ (1.67 Ghz) // 256 MB RAM DDR // AGP 8X (ony for 1.5v cards)

Hi there, i recently installed a new graphics card (GeForce FX 5200). Once installed i noticed a difference in my PC performance, i used to play Championship Manager 03/04 and had no problems with performance until this new graphics card was installed. I decided to upgrade my memory from 256 to 640mb ram. I have noticed a difference in Windows load up time but nothing else really. CPU usage is at 100% usually. When windows first loads everything runs smoothly for 20mins or so untill it starts to slow down.
If anyone could help i'd be very grateful.

System Details:
Dell Dimension DIM2350
Pentium 4 CPU 2.00GHz
640 MB RAM
GeForce FX 5200 128MB
Windows XP

I have a Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz 2.81GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM

And i have Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Is this a good card for me?

What do you think?

A:NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

It all depends on how you use your computer. If you are only using your computer for writing documents and browsing the internet, then the 5200 is a great card!

If you are wanting to play any of the newer 3D games, the 5200 is the bottom of the barrel. The lowest of the low. The scum on the bottom of shoes....

I only have a PCI interface so before you bash it, understand what my options are

A:GeForce 5200 256 mb PCI Interface

Good choice, I had this card and the radion 9200 ,when I had my compaq 7585. I did prefer the 9200 but there was little difference between the two. The 9200 did do a little better on the benchmarks as well.
