Nvidia Geforce fx5200 won't work on aero??

Well, after I installed windows 7 on my system (because i got a serious virus which is a very long story), I installed the latest version of my driver then the aero thing doesn't work it says on the troubleshooter that my card has to be a WDDM or Windows Display Driver Model thing, what should I do??? By the way, my video card is 128MB, it works perfectly on windows vista also the aero on vista works!! any suggestions???

Hi.

Install this using the device manager after it is extracted to C:\NVIDIA by running it.

After it extracts, close the installer.

Go to device manager. Right click on standard vga. Update driver software. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

Navigate to C:\NVIDIA and find the .inf. Double click on it and hit ok. Hit next. It will install. Reboot after and then choose an Aero theme by right clicking the desktop, Personalize.

If you did it then you're good. If you have the name of your card in device manager it's good.
Choose an Aero theme and if you can't, click the link at bottom of Personalization screen to troubleshoot it and it will fix.

Already tried it, I thought it would fix my problems but it made it worst, it keeps restarting, so I would like to do it manually so i can see the latest version, but what I'm wondering is that I installed it on vista then the aero graphics works perfectly!!! After I installed vista it automatically found my video card but after my windows 7 installation I have to found the latest version of the card????

Is your graphics card the only one shown in display adapters section of the device manager?

Are there any mirrored drivers listed there too?

The WDDM only means it needs the driver installed and may be complaining because you didn't install it well. Maybe show us a screenshot of the device manager.
