Arrow Re: FX 5200 DVI Problem

The Short Version
You're hosed.

The Long Version
Each NVIDIA GPU has two logical display ports regardless of the physical connectors or TMDS transmitters available. OEMs decide how to connect these logical ports to physical connectors. Most vendors have 1xVGA and 1xDVI and the TV connector "floats' to the unused GPU port when only one of the computer connectors is used.

Your OEM appears to have made your card with the TV port permanently tied to the DVI port, so you can have DVI + VGA or TV + VGA but never DVI+TV.
