Default Need a little help!

Before I post my problem i want to apologize if this post is not in the correct location.

I currently have a geforce fx 5200 card and as of yesterday I have been having problems while playing games. For one thing the graphics are becoming very sketchy (very dismantled, white/black shapes appear). Another thing is when I click the windows button on my keyboard to switch to my desktop from my game, the screen turns black and wont show a picture anymore. Perhaps my card is over heated or something. I tried to install new drivers to this card but when it came time to restart, my computer gave me the blue screen saying that recent devices/drivers were uninstalled incorrectly. I had to click the option that said "Start computer with the most recent settings that worked". I am asking for help as to what I should do. While playing games the card produces weird shapes and figures as I move the mouse and isnt displaying the picture fully. Please help me if you can. Perhaps its overheated? If so what should I do?
Thanks again for reading and sorry for posting in the wrong spot.

No problem about the post location. I moved it in here because the FX line was previous the the "6 series".

Do you have any problems with the card in Windows (non-gaming situations)? Also, do you have another system that you could put this card in and see if the problem still exists?

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I dont have a current system that I can test it on. It does mess up on non gaming things. When you download music for example which has a video (music video), the screen turns black and the computer freezes. Dont know what can be wrong

Have you tried booting into safe mode, completely uninstalling your video card drivers, rebooting and then installing the latest NVIDIA Forceware drivers (version 66.93)?

IS there a number I can call for technical support and actually speak to someone?

Usually, yes. You would call the tech support number listed with your video card. Or, if you don't have that but know what brand it is (Gainward, eVGA, BFG, etc) then you can go to that company's website and find the tech support number there.
