The logo testing thing just means Microsoft has tested the software and they're happy with it. Under normal circumstances, software from a reputable vendor like nVidia will work just fine. If it refuses to install, you will have to turn off driver signing. To do this go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Driving Signing, then choose 'Ignore - Install the software anyway and don't ask for my approval', press okay. Now restart the computer and try the install.

a day late fwiw. i'm running the 78.0.1 version. their latest i think. the site says it is whql signed but device manager says not. hmmm. seems to work ok, no probs. windows update recommends the real old version but i just ignore that. this 5200 is a pretty good old card. i'm running 2 monitors in dualview mode. a 20in samsung lcd at 1600x1200 and a 19in gateway crt at 1280x1024. i don't do the game thing i just like lots of screen real estate.
