    I have a NVIDIA GeForce4 4200Ti and am unable to use Windows Movie Maker,
    Windows DVD Maker, and Aero Glass. I checked device manager and the video
    card is working. I went into color schemes in Control Panel and there are no
    options. If i try to turn on glass it does not work. What can I do to fix
    this?

    I also am unable to use Windows Flip and Flip 3D. Do I have to turn it on?

  2. Windows Flip and Flip3D are all part of the Aero Glass experience - so if
    you don't have Glass, then you can't get the Flip3D or anything else that
    seems to be "enhanced".

  4. You need an NVIDIA GeForce 5 Series or Newer for Aero Glass to work to work
    with a NVIDIA Graphics Card, just FYI. P.S. I personnally recommend a
    NVIDIA GeForce 6800, also just FYI.

  5. Have downloaded the nvidia Vista drivers from the Nvidia site?
    After installing Glass was working fine.

    But I still have some problems with media center at this point.

  7. It's not an error. But in full-screen the display flickers (blue/blackblue
    black etc..). IF I windomize the screen it is just black.
    In full screen I can see the welcome text (in the flickering) and I can get
    through the menus, until the video test (those happy people in the
    livingroom) starts. After that my machine hangs.

    I have to say that I had an dual screen setup but I remove one monitor from
    tha back of my PC. In display settings it is still visible. Maybe it had
    noting to do with that?

    I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers Beta 2. No luck.

    I have to say that those drivers are very limited in my case according to
    setting possibilities. I only see 3d setup and dual screen setup. No display
    setting (depth, resolution etc..) and no icon in the tray (I dont know if it
    has to be there but on my XP machine there is a Nvidia logo there.)

    I also installed (when the above didn't work) the ' drivers' for my
    monitor. Samsumg SYncmaster 214T. The videocard I use is an Nvidia 6800 with
    512 MB mem.

    I don't think you can get Aero Glass with that video card. I don't think
    it's a DX9 card, just a DX9 compatible card.
