i downloaded a windows 7 package from a different model that supports this OS... installed NvCplSetup and it now says "setup failed to read the required Display Driver to be used with this package. Setup will not continue"
That's almost surely because you didn't install the driver itself correctly yet.

ForceWare Windows XP/2000 32-bit

or perhaps these posted by Torrentg awhile back.

Also these have HD support and have been used successfully with Windows 7 and your card.

Torrent and Chev: Thank you!!!! Finally worked! the doubted XP driver worked when I ran in XP SP3 compatibility mode. Screen is super clear now! Appreciate it... PC is 6 years old and still runs like a champ!

Cheers!!!
