As for Rivatuner not covering your card...Since this is an older card it doesn't suprise me. I had win98 for a long time and still prefered it on my dinosaur than installing XP.....till nothing supported 98 This is the way things go.... Note I am not comparing your card to win98...I would never do such a thing
Sorry if i am not understanding you as i suppose to, im not so good in english, my born language is Lithuanian So i have some difficultys.

As y can udertand you are syaing that biostar was update to run windows7. Well wihout update i runs windows7. And i actually dont need any windows7 preferences, i want to overclock my video card on windowsxp to get in css not 32fps but 37fps!!! Tahts all i need :/

And as u sad, rivatuner doeasnt not support my fx5, but why nvidia system tools does not support it too?

For the same reason there are no Windows 7 drivers for that card, Nvidia has dropped support for it. It is too old for them to keep adding support for it in new drivers and applications.

For most things in your system, the board is compatible and able to run win7. but certain functionality was added in Win7 that can not be accessed by the motherboard unless the motherboard is told what the functionality is. For this to happen, the board needs to be updated with information on how to use certain functions of win7. So even though win7 runs, some things that win7 can do are not doable on your motherboard.

As for supporting old hardware, I agree with Stormy on why this happens.

It would be great if all hardware was updated and compatibility issues resolved so all could be used, but it would be way to expensive, time consuming, and bloated (huge programs) to do this.

As cards age, companies look at how many are still out there and cut support for the least popular cards.
So, nVidia has cut support for this card.... I am sorry it is so, but they might have had enough complaints that if you contact them, you could get an answer to your problem.

uuugh.....really? Ok well. Sorry to hear. I thought you were using Windows 7 as that is what your system specs said. I would still say, your best bet is to contact nVidia. Ask them if there are any other compatible cards and get the drivers for that card. Also it is still a good Idea if this doesn't resolve your problem to update your BIOS.
