Windows 7: GeForce3

WOW GeForce3 and Remote Desktop and Aero

Anyone know of any drivers available for the GeForce3? This is my old system, just used for file sharing and the like. Everything in it works fine with Win7. However, I can't get Aero to work with the card cause I don't have proper drivers.

Anyone have any advice?


Wow. When viewing Win7 on the computer with the GeForce3, I do not have Aero features. However, I usually remote into this computer using Remote Desktop. When I do, I have Aero features. Additionally, when I look in Devices and Printers, it shows the monitor I have hooked up to the remote computer.

So, it seems Win7 Remote Desktop moves all visual stuff to the remote computer perfectly?

You can't have aero feature with a GF3 because the chip is not Dx9 compliant (needed for Aero). I think the better driver you may have are on Winupdate, as far this is a really old card you may not expect better one from nVidia.

But with RDP it's the remote machine which care. If the remote machine is "aero compliant" so you can have it on the remote desktop. Because this one doesn't work like VNC, or other, which send "full desktop picture" but desktop information for rendering.
