0mhz video card???

Hi. Currently im having thsese drivers installed in my machine: NVIDIA DRIVERS 175.19 WHQL
My video card is: nvidia geforce fx5200
My motherboard is: biostar p4m80-m4 (bios has been updated 1week ago)

Problem is that i cant overclock it, also i cant look at my fx5 temepratures. teperatures shows 0degrees, and overclock scales shows 0mhz, and i cant modifacte it!!! I tried to overclock with: nvidia system tools, riva tunner. Everywhere my current mhz is 0 and i cant modyfitace it...
Whats is the problem?

Here is photo:

P.S. yes i tried to enable driver overclocking also i tried to restart pc for detecting those mhz... It doesnt work... Here it shows N/A in nvidia system tools it shows 0mhz.

I have not used RivaTuner, so I dont know how to help with this, but here are some things that could help:

Make sure the card is fully seated correctly first. I have seen this a few times on this forum.

Second, please download GPU-Z GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility and post back with what it says for your clock speed.

Ok for more info, your board and GPU are compatible.
Biostar USA

Is this link to the correct card?
Verto GeForce FX 5200 Ultra 128 MB AGP Graphics Card specs and Graphics Card specifications - CNET Reviews

Since your board has both PCI and AGP(8x) and you are running the graphics through AGP(8x), you might want to check your BIOS to make sure that the system is using the AGP slot first for graphics:

Determine your BIOS version:
Biostar USA

In the BIOS change your Graphics settings: Step 16 : set to AGP
BIOS Tuning : BIOS from A to Z


EDIT: Be very careful when doing anything in the BIOS, and post here first if you are uncertain or dont know what to do....

Probably find that it is showing like that due to poor AGP support at the motherboard/chipset level. Also unless yours is an oddball the FX5200 never came with temperature monitoring or fan control.

You are using a card that doesn't really have any Windows 7 support, you are using the XP driver to get it to run.

What a hell? I downloaded that GPU thing, and it shows everything, my Mhz and everything ells... here is some photos:


So where is the problem???

"Is this link to the correct card?

No my video card is "nvidia geforce fx5200 agp" not ultra

"Since your board has both PCI and AGP(8x) and you are running the graphics through AGP(8x), you might want to check your BIOS to make sure that the system is using the AGP slot first for graphics:"
I think i've already done it

stormy13: i have 3boot system: linux ubuntu10, windowsxp, windows7. Everywhere my fx5 runs great, and in windows7 i get all aero effects too

Wouldn't surprise if Unwinder (the guy who wrote RivaTuner) removed support for either the card or the driver version you have installed. If you think about it him trying to keep support fort old drivers and cards like yours is somewhat counter-productive to keeping it up to date with current cards and drivers.

You really want to find out what if any support that card and driver still have the best place to ask is here,

Well, glad we could help a little.

Noskas16, you have proven the usefullness of filling in your system specs and it is appreciated.

The screenshot also says it doesn't know your bios version. You might want to go to the Biostar website and see if there is an update for your BIOS. You can find your BIOS version by going to the link in my previous post: Biostar USA

Flashing the BIOS is usually difficult and requires great care to not mess up your system so post if you find an update and need help installing it.


Also
Not recommended, but if nothing else works you might want to try some generic drivers for the same level of card. sometimes compatible drivers for a different yet similar card will work (i have done this with a 256 nvidia card before) Call nVidia to see if they have a way already to fix this isse.

You are using win7 32x so at least you dont have to find 64x drivers.....

The Biostar board probably has been updated to be compatible with Win7, the Card should be usable, but you would have to check with nVidia to see if there are any compatible drivers for it.

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
