  1. "you should then go into your BIOS and disable the onboard video (or choose PCI/AGP as the first video device), then once your FX5200 becomes the active video card you should be able to install the latest drivers for it"
    - Here's an answer to a question i posted earlier

    I presume you're using a laptop (video is integrated on laptops unlike desktops) To access BIOS, there is a message when you boot that says something like "Press F1 for setup". The actual key varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. For Dell it's F2, others it's DEL, some it's F1, ... Just watch for the message and press that key immediately! Once in BIOS, read the top menu selection for video settings.
