Sorry, it is not within my control. There is absolutely nothing I'm empowered to do to help with your situation. NVidia has dropped support. This is why.

Here is a link to your motherboard. You can see that, in fact, it does use nForce 3.

There seems to be a possible workaround, but it is not a very practical. I refer you to this to do with it as you may.

I was able to get HD 2600 working in Win7 with Nforce3

After many attempts, I was finally able to get my ATI Radeon HD 2600 AGP working in Windows 7 32-bit using the method described by Jack006 here: x1950 agp, nforce3, x2 athlon 4000 -problem

I have an MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum (nforce 3) with an AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (dual core). I also ran "bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" to disable driver signing. I used the latest Catalyst 10.6 driver hotfix. I was not working until I ran the Nvidia 5.11 GART driver.

Now I have a CCC icon in the Windows 7 system tray and I have dual monitor working.
