  1. I saw on the techspot news, that there were new drivers, so i went and downloaded them. after reboot, there were no Aero graphics, i ran 3Dmark and it said that it could not find any graphics thing.
    (Windows vista home premium, 32-bit)
    Nvidia geforce 7300GT Point Of View.
    by the way,the same thing hapenned with older drivers, but by a strange thing windows updated those nvidia drivers and everything apeared to work..
    i don't know what to do...

    Sometimes a complete uninstalling and making sure all drivers are removed and then a reinstall does the job. So...

    1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro (free version) to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro. If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

    * Let us know the results.

    vista not showing my card after all the thing u suggested to do... any more advice? :(

    It seems that vista don't like downloaded drivers from nvidia, it likes from it's own updates.

    Have you tried uninstalling all drivers, and then reinstall drivers from the software provided with your card/system?
    I had this problem once, and that solved it for me.
