click here

All Geforce FX use the same drivers, they are called Detonator.

If you go to click here they have all the latest drivers you will need. They have a Forcware driver for your card it's 5655, just download that, theres no need to uninstall your old drivers it will just overwrite the old one.

thx guys .

ps downloaded detonator. in system spec card reads as a fx5200 not fx5600 ultra have i been sold the wrong card?

The driver will autodetect the card (provided you don't override the default setup process). I would be suspicious. There is a huge difference between the 2 cards, how much did you pay ?

Download Aida or Sandra and see if they can identify the card.

Have you tried downloading a driver from Its easy to join and they 100,000+ drivers. They sort out a problem i had with a creative labs sound card.

I bought the card of a friends friend who says he paid about £130 for. I paid £70. And it is a FX5200 card.

Hate to tell you but that card second hand is worth about £30, for £70 you could buy a new Radeon 9600 or FX5600 card. The FX5200 is under powered and for games you will struggle with it, the best thing to do is ask for your money back and buy one of the other cards.
