I installed this card in my computer and suddenly my Task Bar is gone. Took it out and the bar is back. I only get 4 fps with the stock card in my computer so I need the upgrade. The computer is a 2 gig processor with 768 mb of ram so that should be ok. Any ideas?

Currently have a BCX2 (Mistake) should have waited for the 400 that is now out. Have Real Flight 3.5.

Thanks guys.

Make sure to go to nvidias website (http://www.nvidia.com) and download the latest driver for your card....(after installing it)

Actually on second thought, do it now, save it to your desktop, install nvidia based card, install new driver, reboot...

The older I get, the better I was

I think that this is the page that you need, assuming you are using XP operating system

Found That Problem

Thanks for the help. This problem was caused by not deleting the intel drivers before installation. Now that it is working, I would like to get my fps up over 28. I have turned off everything but the heli. Any ideas on this one.

LOLOL the FX5500 IS NOT A Upgraded card...Hope on Craigslist.com and look for a 7800 or 8800 Card, you can usually get them for 100-300 that will get you over 60 FPS
