Okay, so i accidentally knocked out my video card (dont ask, it was a complicated process) and rebooted, so windows decided to kill all of the drivers. So, basically now when i reboot the "found new hardware" bubble appears, and it only labels it as a "Video Controller (VGA compatible)", not an NVidia GeForce FX 5200. It tries and fails to automatically install drivers, and i cant manually install either. Plz help... I need to play Elder Scrolls IV!

EDIT: im running my moniter through the internal now, btw.

Go HERE. Pick the proper options from the drop down menus and download\install the latest driver for your card.

i tried that... the problem isnt downloading the driver, it's the computer not recognizing the card. Sorry if i wasnt clear. Thanks for the help, though! Any more would be much appreciated. It might just be that the card is really old and finally died.
