Windows 7: Aero effects, wddm problems

Aero effects, wddm problems

Hi, I'm new to windows 7 and the forums. I'm trying to find a way to run the aero effects, without spending more than $400.00, as I can buy a new system for that kind of money.

Hardware: ibm intellistation m pro 6225-22u

3.6GHz intel p4 cpu

3.0Gb RAM

Windows 7 home premium 32bit sp1

Nvidia quadro fx1300 graphics card.

I can't run aero effects as the driver doesnt support wddm.

Can anyone suggest either a driver that will allow me to use the aero effects or a video card that can run a wddm supported driver?

Or am I just engaging in a fools errand? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The whole problem was an old graphics card. I upgraded to an Nvidia gt620 and everything is working perfectly now.
