Amount of megabytes the card has isn't the only determining factor in running Aero. Your card also needs to be DX9 compatible, have a WDDM driver, and have Pixel Shader 2.0 hardware or higher. Your card is missing one or more of these features, and I know for a fact it's missing being DX9 compatible. Also I don't think the GeForce 4 series have WDDM drivers either.

It's worse than that, though: it's a Geforce4 MX, which isn't really a Geforce 4 at all.

I believe that its a DX7 card. No Aero.
