    A Jedi I am not, The force I am referring to is a GeForce4 420mx PCI
    I have a three monitor setup, and it was working beautifully under win XP.
    However after install of 7, It disappeared, And when I looked in Device manager, I got a Code 10, and it is using default VGA card drivers from windows, I tried to find any and all drivers, I managed to find Nvidia's XP drivers for it but it still wouldn't work again, I got a code 10,
    Then, I managed to find some non-Nvidia drivers, And it installed, but again no dice, still a code 10,

    Oh, at some point, I got a error 34, But then it quickly went back to a 10,

    Any Advice, I mean, I'm not a genius, But I would have thought if There were drivers available, I could have found them, or Could it be something else? Please Advise?

    As far as I know, that video card isn't supported by Windows 7

    The GeForce4 420mx is only DX7 compatible, and W7 requires DX9 or above.

    You simply do not have the hardware to run W7.

    the FX5200 is a DX9 card, so it meets the minimum specs
