I purchased a new graphics card to replace my old 32mb Geforce 2 MX which was working just fine for an oldie.
I bought a 128mb Geforce FX 5200
I installed it, and it works ok with certain games like EA Games Alice,
But when I try to play Sims 2, the game loads right to the point of start of play and then I get a blue screen of death with an error message “nv4_disp.dll
Also when I run “dxdiag the card fails test Direct 3D at step 7.
Do you think this card is incompatible with my computer ?
Here’s my computer spec, it’s pretty old stuff, so don’t laugh ok.
Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2
System Manufacturer: VIA Technologies, Inc.
System Model: VT8363
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PGN
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor, MMX, 3DNow, ~850MHz

Any help much appreciated, Thank Rob. :confused:
