Help with nVidia Drivers

Hello, first I want to say I do not speak English
I have a big problem on my computer, it only starts in safe mode and vga
Because he is missing the video drivers. Plus this is the problem, I use a very old card nVidia Geforce 4 MX 4000
They say that Windows 7 does not support this board, there are more than two months ago I had this driver. More uninstalled unintentionally
And now I'm chasing these drivers, please someone wanted to publish the link of the drivers, that's all!
I'm from Brazil and I am using a translator a few more English classes that I did. If anyone knows tell me.

Drivers - GeForce

Auto-detect your GPU



Run Windows Update again


It might find the correct driver again.

They say that Windows 7 does not support this board
And they would be correct. There is not now and never will be a Windows 7 (or Vista) driver for that card as it is just too old, and all support for it was dropped before Vista was released. The best you are going to get for it is the last XP driver,

ForceWare Windows XP/2000 32-bit

and likely have to use Compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install. You also won't get Aero or any of the other new graphics effects as the card doesn't have the necessary hardware on it to support it.
