hi,
i have installed a nVidia 3d GeForce 5200 on my pc (i dont have a video card before so i can only run 2d games) but i only got the video card itself, without it's cd. I then downloaded the driver from nvidia.com and everything went well.
Then on my next startup, it says on the system tray, "Found New Hardware - Video Controller". I checked if my video card worked, and it did (i checked on playing battle realms - it was fine).
What should i do? Do i have to download another software?
Pls help.

Tnx for further support.

What does it do after "found new hardware".

There may be a program such as Expertool necessary to adjust the video card.

and?
Run the wizard - what does it try to do?
It may be looking for additional software you might not have installed for your video card.
