Specs: Windows XP, 512
Has anyone seen any issues with the Nvida GeForce FX 5200 (128 Mb) Graphics Card. When Booting normally, some of the icon on the desktop are black boxes, then everything goes scrambled, different colors and then the screen goes black and doesn't come back. Downloaded the drivers from Dell's webpage for this card and PC, but didn't help... Any Thoughts???
Thanks
Rick

sounds like the cards nearly dead, can you try it on any other pcs?

Definitely sounds like it's on it's way out but it *may* simply be an overheating issue. Does it have a cooling fan? Did you confirm that it's working & not all dust clogged?

No I haven't, friend brought it over late last night and I haven't had time to open the case yet.. Just was trying to see how the card was acting....

Thanks

Also might try the nvidia referance drivers from nvidias site. I generally find them more stable and I'm betting the 5200 drivers on dells site are atleast 3yrs old.

Doesn't seem to be overheating. But now after uninstalling the drivers and loaded the lastest from Nvida, I'm getting a BSOD with a nv4_disp error and says that it's stuck in a infinite loop. Still thinking the card is bad, Any Thoughts???

Thanks

Yeah. Sounds bad. At this point the only way to test it is another card. Does it have onboard video? If so try it. Remove the 5200 then try on board.
