nVidia GeForce FX go5200 Driver
Hi, I'm running an older laptop with a GeForce FX go5200 graphics card, but I can't find the driver that works for it on the nVidia site.
Does anyone have a way for me to find this driver? The autodetect on the download page doesn't work either.

Our notebook drivers cover Geforce 8 seris and above so unfortunately we do not have drivers for your GPU. Under Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the only drivers are the ones that are preinstalled by the OS. No updates are available for Vista/7.

I see, are there any legacy drivers that would work? I'm running windows XP by the way.

Try running Windows Update, and see if you have any driver updates under 'optional software'. IIRC, driver updates for hardware appear there

I would think your best bet would be to check your laptop manufacturer's web site for the driver.

For example I have an old HP Pavilion zd7000 laptop with GeForce 5600 Go graphics and I can still find the driver for it from HP's web site from 2004. All I did was google 'HP Pavilion zd7000 video driver' and I found the link to HP's site.

The laptop video drivers back then were always customized by the laptop manufacturer so you never found them from nVidia's web site.
