ummm.... bad move, Ge Force 2 has no WDDM Drivers, You need a better graphics card for it to work. Installing a WDDM-compliant card would solve the problem, XDDM Drivers don't work in 7. Or you can disable Hardware Acceleration in the display properties.

After I disabled the acceleration, can I now calculate my WEI score?
