ok so for a while now my computer has been freezing at startup and wont let me play a lot of games that arent even online. for some reason i dont get enough fps which is confusing since i dont have a bad graphics card so i looked at my specs on my graphics card and it said version mismatch so im guessing i dowloaded the wrong driver? i have a geforce fx 5200 and i tried to dowload it again off of nvidia but when i ran the saved program it said that "The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"
so im wondering if my motherbaord is out of date and if i need a new driver for it if so how? i dont know how to check my motherboard's spec and dont no where i can get the drivers off of but this is wat i ordered of off new egg if it helps at all
MB i875P|5P1A4D IC7-G MAXII ABIT RT

again your help is much appreciated!

You can get the mobo make/model from looking at the mobo itself. It will be etched/printed on it in large lettering if you open the case and have a careful look. If you'd rather not do that, you can run a free system info/audit application like belarc advisor which will tell you more about your PC's innards than you would want to know: http://www.belarc.co...e_download.html

Look in the belarc info on youre computer.
What does it say undre "System Model" and under "Main Circuit Board "
The 2 of these fields together should give u the full name of the computers mother board and then try to look it up.
