  1. Hi, I'm having trouble with my GeForce FX 5200 video card.

    I can't seem to launch games, that is when I start the game the screen freezes.

    I can't play videos either they freeze too.

    I don't know what's going on...

    hey man i own the same card and seemed to be runnign into some problems my self for the second time. For ur problem try updating ur driver for video card. u can find it in nvidia site. i just downloaded mine and hasnt hlped me very much. also run dxdiag and test ur direct3d directdraw and agp acceleration. u might find the problem there. make sure they r all enabled too. if u cant enable them, means u might be missing some of its very important dll files. use the following program to scan to c what u might be missing after the troubleshooting.

    download the file there
