Default New gfx Card Problems

hi, i was wondering if anyone could help with my gfx card, i bought it a few days ago and it works perfect on evry game except for one, which is the one i wanna ply the most. at some points the games fine, but wen i turn the camera at certain angles i get artifacts and most of the screen goes black. it only happens when the camera is through an object, like the camera angle starts inside an object, such as a stone pillar. my gfx card is an xfx geforce 5200 256mb and my pc is an emachines220 with 638 ram, ( yes i know these computers are crap lol). if anyone could help it would be great, also i cant send the card abck anymore so i really need to fix it lol. thanks.
