Geforce 5200 - Images are ghosted

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a Geforce 5200 (NVidia FX5200 AGP8X, 128MB DDR by Gigabyte). The device ID shows as 0x0322, which matches the NVInject known device IDs. I installed it with NVinject 0.2.1.


On high resolutions such as 1440x900 (i have a widescreen monitor) the image is okay, but portions of the screen and the edges of menus and such have what I guess can be described as static. Lower resolutions do not have the static.


All resolutions suffer ghosting of windows, buttons, and cursors (several shadows of the object appearing from the right side).


Adjusting the resolution or the refresh rate does not resolve the problem. The OSx86 wiki, under the 5200 in the AGP sections, states that it works "after several tweaks" and also "Works after device ID tweak and custom NVCap in NVinject" but fails to provide more information, and I've not found a good post detailing the tweaks.


Any suggestions?


On the screen shot the ghosting can best be seen in the text boxes on the left hand side.

Do you see similar ghosting effect in Windows? If yes then this may not have anything to do with the card, it could be your VGA cable itself (i.e. hardware problem). Of course if you're having this issue over a DVI cable then it's not interference; and I don't know what the problem may be.


I had a similar ghosting a while back that was due to a poor quality VGA cable; poor shielding. Interference due to poor shielding is most evident at high resolution and high refresh rates. I simply got a better cable and this was gone.
