FX5200 coolbits error.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi peeps,

I have an Nvidia FX5200 which has been giving me problems since
I installed the latest driver. (173?) I have downloaded and installed
v53.3 as I read somewhere that it is the better driver for this card.

Anyway I loaded coolbits into the registry and tried the overclock
tab on 'HardPage' to probably under rather than over clock my card.

I get the following error.
Quote:
nvhardpage fail with detection speed of memory or core 032.
Try en/disabling coolbits or restart your computer
.

Any idea whats happening? And yes I did both of the recommended
steps in the error message.

Any other tips for getting the most out of this card would be greatly
appreciated, and no, I don't expect it to run the latest games!

I have added a cooling fan inside my case to blow on the heatsink as
this model doesn't have a fan onboard.

Its an ASUS motherboard P5PE-VM
A Pentium 4 (I think)

Here's my pc specs from 'DXDiag'

Most of the coolbits registry hacks are just that. The authors add all kinds of unnecessary registry changes that they think you would like to have.

Undo whatever you have done.

Then:
Start > Run > regedit >
Navigate to HKLM, Software, NVIDIA Corporation, Global, NVTweak
Right click NVTweak, choose New then DWORD Value.
Name the new DWORD Value coolbits, hit <Enter>
Right click the new DWORD Valve coolbits and choose Modify.
In the box that opens set the Value data to 3.
Click OK and exit regedit.
Now the overclock option will appear in the classic Nvidia control panel.

Thanks for the tip Bill, will try that after posting.
