For the third time, can you get better screen resolution with the NVidia driver you currently have loaded? Right click your desktop.

If you want to try the Intel driver for your onboard graphics chip to compare to the Nvidia you succesfully installed yesterday, then download the Intel file which I've linked twice, unzip the files to the desktop, click on Display Adapter in Device Manager, use Driver tab to Update Driver>Browse my Computer for driver, then click Browse button to locate drivers folder for unzipped Intel driver, attempt to install until you find the right folder and file.

If it still will not install, you posted a screenshot yesterday here: VGA Video Card adapter driver needed... which shows the Intel 82865G driver to select from the list given when you click "Let Me Choose" on the Browse my Computer option.

Did you try installing that driver from the list? Try it now.

After you install the correct driver for the 865G graphics chip on your mobo, then compare it to the Nvidia driver installed yesterday (which is now stored in the same "Let me Choose" list), you can decide if you want to buy a new card. Check your screen resolution choices with each.

Turn on and frequently Check Windows Updates for any incoming newer drivers.

Aero requires a minimum DirectX 9 compatible display adapter with 128MB of video RAM. The bad news is you will not get this from a 5-yr old video card. The good news is you can buy plenty of devices which meet the minimum spec for less than $50.
