    i have a video card NVIDIA MX440 with 64 Mb, installed in my mother board, and recently i changed my OS, upgrading it with a windows 7 enterprise version, [formerly i had a xp pro OS]

    it happens that i cant have the aerials and transparencies, which is an extraordinary new feature of the 7

    i'm being told that my problem is too small the board memory of 64 Mb

    the video card must support DirectX9.0 or newer, and the driver should be compatible with windows display driver model = WDDM, WDDM 1.0 or higher drive

    would it be possible to improve thru updating the driver, downloading from some specific site?

    someone could help me with ideas on how to improve my system?

    congrats and cheers

    Windows 7 has moved on. Many older technologies will not work, and it is to be expected. If the Win 7 will not allow your current setup to use things like aero, you have no choice but to upgrade.

    Can you upgrade the video card?

    Hi Hugo,
    glad to see you finally made it.. :)
    The card you mention is very old (I had one myself nearly 10yrs ago) and as saltgrass suggests it would be better if you could upgrade to something more recent.
