Troubleshoot Sacred Geforce Fx 5200

The Sacred GeForce FX 5200 is a video card produced by the Nvidia Corporation, a leading video card developer. It comes in several models, such as the GeForce FX 5200, GeForce FX 5200 Ultra and the GeForce PCX 5300. The GeForce 5200 models use a PCI Express connection, which allows for maximum video card speed and performance. However, with many video cards, including the GeForce 5200, technical problems may occur. Simple troubleshooting is effective for fixing most video cards, with the exception of cards with physical damage or incompatibilities.


1. Turn off your computer and check the physical status of the card. Unscrew the computer case to expose the inner-workings. Locate the GeForce 5200; it connects to a PCI Express slot that protrudes from the motherboard. A simplified way to locate the video card is by tracing the monitor cable to the computer. Where the cable connects is where the video card will be inside. Next, verify with your computer manual that it is in a proper PCI Express slot.

2. Close up the computer case and reconnect the cables. Check that the monitor is on and that there is no damage on the computer monitor cables. Connect the monitor cable to an alternate input on the back of the video card if there is no signal when turning the computer on.

3. Turn the computer on, and allow the operating system to load. Once the operating system loads, you will want to download the latest GeForce FX 5200 video card drivers. Go to the Nvidia website (see resources), and download the latest drivers. Insert the graphics card model, operating system information and language into the download page. Next, click "Search," and then "Download." Once the drivers download, double-click the setup application, and follow the installation steps to completion.

4. Restart your computer, and allow the operating system to load. If the hardware checks out and the drivers are currently up to date, the video GeForce FX 5200 will run correctly. If it is still not working, you may need to replace the actual card.
