Hey guys I just installed the Nvidia GeForce FX5200 on my new desktop. I don't want the graphics being used from the motherboard so I used my old graphics card from my old XP desktop. I looked on nvidias site for a driver for windows 7 and nothing came up for 7. Just vista 64 bit is the newest one. It is a PCI card and I already knocked the slot out for PCI. Its still in the comp but is not recognized or even working. Is their something else I have to do? Like disable the onboard card before I try the new one? Or, is it simply not windows 7 compatible?

If its not then what kind of PCI card would you all recommend for windows 7? I hardly ever do gaming. I just didn't want to use the one on the motherboard. My comp is a HP P6310f.

Thanks in advance........

Why do you not want to use the on-board video card on the motherboard if you don't don't do gaming? I Googled the model number and it shows you have a nVidia GeForce 9100 as an on-board graphics. This video card is faster then the old fx5200. Is something not running well with the on-board video or you looking for more monitor connections?

I have an old FX5200 card that just sits and gathers dust here.

Would it not be slightly smarter...to just buy the appropriate connecting device and use the features of the more current, more powerful, better video chip?
