Default Cannot use nVidia drivers for FX5200

Having a Gainward FX5200 card in an XP PC with a A7V266-E motherboard.
Running VIA's latest 4in1 drivers. Problem is I cannot use nVidia
display drivers. Installing them, I get frequent long screen blackouts,
erratic mouse behavior and extreme sluggishness. I have even made a
clean XP install in the hope that it would help. It did not. The only
thing I can do to use the PC is uninstalling the nVidia drivers and
running with Windows' VGA drivers.

Any idea what might be wrong? Anyone seen behavior like this?

VIA recomends reloading their drivers, after loading other drivers (like
graphics card drivers).

Did you try uninstalling the previous drivers first? That's what nvidia says
to do, but it's hidden at their site under tips.

I did uninstall the old drivers, first from Control Panel, then
cleaning up with Driver Cleaner.

Is this a CRT, or an LCD panel connected through DVI? If it's the latter,
try connecting it through the VGA port for testing purposes.

I have always understood that the Via AGP driver must be installed before
any video drivers.


Did you reboot after uninstalling the old drivers, before installing the
new?

Oh yes, I have thoroughly restarted after every install and/or
uninstall. I am beginning to suspect hardware failure. Are there parts
of display card or motherboard which are not used in VGA mode, but come
into play with the more advanced drivers?

Nah, you can do it in any order. If you install the video drivers first, the
card will run in PCI mode until the AGP drivers are installed. Of course,
this is with a new M/B. For older M/Bs, the AGP driver included in WinXP
will work without any user interaction.
