Windows 7: Windows 7 driver for GeForce FX5200

Windows 7 driver for GeForce FX5200


I've just been trying out 7 and am liking it but I've been unable to find a driver that works successfully. I've searched all the threads and tried nvidia's website but no luck. I'm 99.9% sure I have the GeForce FX5200 (it was called Personal Cinema I think when I got it years ago)

Currently Device Manager is showing 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' and I've tried using 190.62 but that doesn't recognise the hardware either.

Does anyone know where I can find a working driver for this card and 7? Also should I reseat the card in case thats why it has not been recognised?

Many thanks for your help with this matter
