    hi,

    for a while the old computer seemed to have deleted the graphics card from its memory. In device manager i could not find my graphics card.

    i opened the case to my computer and found the video card stated fx5200 and remembered it was a nvidia fx5200.

    i downloaded the drivers for this device and installed it. i restarted my computer and now after 1 minute or so after i restart my computer it slows down and then seems to slowly crash and i can only move my mouse cursor.

    is there anythin i can do. i only downloaded the driver because the resolution was too big.

    please help! thks

    Download, install, and run Everest Home Edition on this machine. Once it's finished loading and running, look under;

    MOTHERBOARD
    Post what is listed for your Motherboard (make/model) and the Motherboard Chipset description.

    Computer, Summary, Display, or under Display, PCI/AGP Video. This will tell you what display adapter/chip
    you have. Post that information. (Video Adapter and 3D Accelerator.)

    Multimedia, or, under Multimedia, PCI / PnP Audio. This will tell you what sound devices you have available
    on your system.


    Post that information.

    Run a file check on the O/S.

    METHOD 1
    If you have an XP CD:
    Click START, RUN, type in:

    sfc /purgecache

    (This ensures that system files are copied from your Windows installation media, and files which may be infected/damaged with malware, or are corrupted, are not copied from your drive. Some of the files which are restored/replaced may need MS Updates applied. If sfc replaces any such files, you will have to reinstall updates for those files. (If you have Automatic Updates active, this will happen automatically.))

    Then type in:

    sfc /scannow

    Have your XP CD handy.


    METHOD 2
    If you do not have an XP CD:
    Click START, RUN, type in:

    sfc /scannow

    Post back with your results.
