Windows 7: How to lower Hardware Acceleration?

How to lower Hardware Acceleration?

Hi folks!

Was just wondering how would I reduce hardware acceleration since there are no buttons and/or sliders in the DirectX Diagnostic tool.

Need it for an old game; NFS SE

The only way to get it work is if its on a FAT32 drive and the sound acceleration is turned to its lowest!

Its OK if there's not any way to do this, since I can just go over to XP to play!

And besides, I think there was no Hardware Acceleration control in Vista as well, right?

Thanks for your time!
