I have-
AMD 2500+ CPU 1.4 GHz.
704 MB RAM and 64 MB Onboard VGA share memory.
MSI VIA K8M800 mainboard and VT8237R Chipset.
Few days ago I have shifted from Win-XP to
Vista-32 Bit Home Basic.All the drivers are automatically loded except the display driver.

The erlier display driver was VIA/S3G Unicrome Pro IGP. I have downloded and installed the letest driver from vendors website. But few programs like 'movie maker' and few screensavers doesn't run saing that, my video card is not compatable with Direct3D and required hardware acceleration is not available.
Please anybody help me what is the actual problem?
Could I solve the matter by installing appropriate driver or I have to increase the VGA memory?
Plz Help me and forgive me for my english.

Have you run the Vista Upgrade Advisor? http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...adeadvisor.mspx

I suspect (since I wasn't able to find any Vista drivers for this video chipset) that it's not Vista compatible.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
