Windows 7: VIA S3 unichrome driver ???

VIA S3 unichrome driver ???

I have a VIA S3 Unichrome chipset ,with 64mb memory.
Windows aero does not work for me and also I do not have a compatible driver for win7 so that I can check whether aero can be forced to work on 64mb card !!!
While searching I found a guy who wrote like this in a website :

I installed Windows 7 on my old CeleronD 2.26 Ghz which has a Biostar mainborad (P4VMA-M) with an integrated VIA/S3G Unichrome IGP., I say what the hell and downloaded the XP drivers from biostar website; then I uncompressed them to a folder and pointed windows 7 to look in there. For my surprise, Windows XP driver worked fine on Win7 32 bit edition. ''

Can somebody tell how to point win7 to look to that folder as he mentioned above ?

Thank you.

Welcome to SevenForums.

First off I don't think we can find a compatible driver for your card but will look.

Until then, read this about Aero requirments and you'll see your not going to be aboe to use it with your current card.

If you would please take the time to fill in your system specs here

If you need a program to help you find them out you can use this one.
