I need a driver for GeFORCE4 MX440-8X (128Mb) on Windows 7

Hi

I am having problems with my screen I think I just need the right graphics card driver. My graphics card is GeFORCE4 MX440-8X (128Mb), it is running on a computer with a Pentium 4 2.53GHz and win 7 professional. There is a problem with both the aero and the basic. I attached a picture of the desktop to show. And the resolution is stuck at 800x600.

I know that it is a very old graphics card and the processor is not great but it still should work. Any help would be much appreciated as I have spend a lot of time on this computer and have got no results.

BTW the picture is not mine but the problem is the exact same.

Thanking you

Ronan

Go to this page ... Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers .

Option 2 works good. You might have to install the latest version of Java to use the option 2, the installation procedure in inbuilt in the driver search procedure.

Hi Ronan490, Welcome to the forums, Unfortunately the GFX card you have is now a "legacy card " ,It will not run Aero on win 7. Aero needs directx9 and above to work correctly on win7, Nvidia last produced drivers for this card in 2003 and as sauch will never produce a new driver, With GFX cards now quite inexpensive it makes sense to upgrade to a newer model

Hi

Thanks for the replies

Archie: I tried Option 2 and it just keeps scanning for the graphics card and doesnt do anything (and i installed the latest version of java). And Option 1 does not have my graphics card.

Pebbly: Thanks for the welcome. I am aware it is a legacy card and that there will be no update for Win 7 but I also know of Nvidia GeFORCE4 MX440 "64Mb" graphics cards working with windows 7 on drivers that maybe are not exact spec but still work (or possible beta versions). And I understand that aero wont work, but neither will basic theme or classic theme work?

Anything else you would recommend?

Kind Regards

Ronan

Hey Pebbly

I tried the 71.90, 72.30 and the 91.31 forceware before I asked on this site and none of them work. I can't understand it.

AGP video card drivers won't install without a working AGP/GART driver, which is part of the chipset/motherboard. What is the make and model of your motherboard.

Hi Stormy13

The motherboard is QPI P4I865PEA-6AF, but QPI isnt even a company and its a complete disaster trying to get any drivers. Again.........

Many Thanks

Unfortunately you're trying to run an unsupported card on an unsupported motherboard/chipset. QPI may have built the computer, but Intel made the motherboard/chipset which is the old Intel 865. One reason you can't find the chipset driver from QPI (if they even exist anymore) is that Intel never made one for it for Windows 7 and will not as they dropped support for that chipset a long time ago; to the point Intel doesn't even offer any drivers of any kind for it anymore, not even XP.

In most cases the generic Windows 7 AGP driver is enough, but not always. When it isn't you can usually get it to work by using the last XP version, but in this case even that isn't available anymore.

You can as pebbly suggested look at a new card, but if you can't get this one to install then it is likely that a new one won't either. Also it isn't the most cost effective solution as a new card will likely cost more than your current computer is worth (which sorry to say is anything over $30-40). This is one of those where it would be better to stay with XP until such a time as you get a new computer that is fully Windows 7 (and soon to be Windows 8) capable.
