My monitor setup is: primary dell 3007wpf via DVI-I & secondary dell 2240L.

 

Windows vista's aero keeps disabling as soon as my second monitor is rotated to portrait, in lanscape its fine. And I need aero enabled for multitasking.

 

This started happening after I got a new GPU (gtx 970) & updated NVIDIA drivers from my previous gt220 gpu.
I have tried DDU to uninstall drivers & reinstall but does nothing. I'm uising the drivers off the nvidia website, some versions don't install & some do. I installed the driver for gtx980.
When windows first starts up from restart, aero is On but only for a few seconds until its disabled.

I have tried all connections, HDMI, VGA & even the DVI model of my second screen, no go.

 

There is no support from nvidia or microsoft other than just upgrade to windows 7. All I want is to prevent aero from disabling. So looking for any help on how to do that, any tweaks or mods of drivers etc please.

My specs are: intel i7 870, 4GB ram corsair, GA- P-55 mobo, windows vista 32bit ultimate w/sp2, msi gtx 970 w/ nvidia control panel 8.1.

Trust me I tried everything & all hook ups. It is caused by NVIDIA not supporting their drivers for vista. They work ok, gaming is fine, but still got bugs.

The problem is nothing that runs on vista is as powerful as a single low wattage GTX970, maybe a HD7970 but they are second hand now. I brought the 970 because based on the drivers available for vista I thought it would be fine.
