nvidia does not have windows 7 x64 drivers for FX Series cards
the last version released was in 2006 for vista

I put this into Lenovo TS140 PC and I am trying to use 3 monitors with it (two on  the video card and one that came with MB).
But if I make FX PCI Card default, then it shows the same image on two monitors and 3rd one(on the MB) does not show. If I make the MB VGA a default, then only one monitor shows the image and PNY graphics card shows up with yellow mark on Device Manger.

So...but this does not mean that you have an incorrect driver, no indication at all.
To use triple monitor, you need the driver to handle it. Singular: one driver, not two. So the onboard card has to use the same as the NVidia card. Since the onboard card is not NVidia made (correct?), you will have to buy a different card that
A matches your onboard card's driver or
B has three output interfaces so it will work solo.

I used to have a Lenovo desktop PC had one VGA port on board and I added Geforce FX 5200 PCI Video Card (with two VGA ports). It used to work. I don't know how but I made it work years ago.

But I can't make it work on Lenovo ThinkServer TS140.

TS140 has Intel graphics card.

Wait, Win7 can indeed use two different graphics drivers (win7 introduced this capability). Well then it should work.
I wonder why the yellow mark in device manager would appear, what's the message in device manager?

Device ManagerThe screenshot above comes up in device manager when I start the computer with on-board video card as primary card.

There's no driver installed for it. The "basic display adapter" is a generic Microsoft driver. Please try to change the driver manually, you should find the NVidia 5200 in the list of drivers.

I downloaded the driver from the link below:

 http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/836

and tried to install, but I got a setup error. "Setup detected that OS in use is not Windows Vista. ....".

I don't remember the exact sequence; but I've used FX5200's on '7 on several occasions when setting up systems for others.    The "trick" is to just ignore the error messages ... e.g. what are the choices when you get the "Setup detected that OS in use is not Vista" message?     Basically you want to say  "Okay, I know that -- just do it" ... and one of the choices will effectively do that.     You may have to run the installer in compatibility mode for Vista ... as I noted, I simply don't recall exactly what I had to do (it's been a couple years since I did that).

Yes, the video link of mine suggests a vista driver as well and it is working in the video. http://www.geforce.co.uk/drivers/results/837 is the link for the 64 bit one.

try slimdrivers, run the scan, and see if it finds a driver for your card  :       https://www.slimwareutilities.com/slimdrivers.php

I have decided to get a QUAD Video card instead of messing with this one.

Thanks for your help.
