the problem with the Geforce 4 microprocessor is it doesn't have the aero capability in it's instruction set. There really is nothing that Nvidia can do, you would have to rebuild the gpu it's self... which would lead to an entirely new and different gpu (would make no sense). the oldest nvidia gpu that supports aero is the fx 5200 model. You should be able to find a low-end geforce 6 chip for around $100.

It's the limitation of the hardware it's self, nothing a driver set can fix.

I think its a big shame that MS & Nvidia are turning there back on the public with this... alot of Graphics card with decent memory (128MB in my case) are being unusable on Vista just because of Aero.

I think a Driver still needs to be made to allow atleast basic game play, and operation on Vista. This does fall within the minimum specs needed for Vista.

MS is shooting themselves in the foot when people try to upgrade to Vista (paying money, not getting it free like me) and their graphic card does not work. Its shows up as 0MB in dxdiag. That is so untrue, and makes me mad when MS and Nvidia could easily make it work as it did, maybe without the new features. I have a powerful pc that is being slowed down because Vista refuses to allow my graphic card to run the graphics because people don't feel like making a driver...
