Card is fine, but Windows 7 does not like AGP

Summary: Card works fine, but unfortunately Windows 7 is not really compatible, regardless of what MICROSOFT says. Hardware acceloration does not work under Win 7. ---- Excellent card for XP and any applications under Win 7 which are not dependant on hardware based graphics. I am dual booting XP & Win 7 for the foreseeable future as I replace all the programs & hardware are now orphans.
Summary: It worked the instant I turned the computer on. The old card died so I couldn't uninstall the old Nividia drivers before installing the new card. The only thing I had to do was set the screen resolution to bring the machine to where it was before. Plug and Play worked wonderfully this time. I'm not a gamer but I watched a couple movies after installation with no problems and a good picture. My only problem is with VisionTek.
Summary: Ordered this for XPS tower, came with molar plug broken from factory, whoever tested this broke the plug as it was still hanging by the four wires, I connected to one molar, than another, both gave warning message that aux power was NOT connected! I applied for and received an immediate refund to my acct, the package is headed back. This molar plug was so tight I had problems getting it connected so I can see what happened to whoever tested this item at VisonTek.
Summary: The only reason why this product got a single star was because the seller of the item shipped the wrong component. They shipped the PCI Express card version of this graphics card instead of the AGP version of it. Upon contacting them about it, they refunded my money because they didnt have the AGP version of it (which is a good thing) but, asked me to just keep the PCI Express card (bad thing)! Sounded like they didnt want to spend any money to get the card back from me.
Summary: GOT THIS CARD AND INSTALLED IT ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THERE IS NO CURRENT DRIVER FOR THIS CARD ONLY A FIX THAT DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEMS. PROGRAMS KEEP TELLING ME TO UPDATE THE DRIVER BUT THERE IS NO DRIVER FOR THE CARD THAT IS CURRENT !!
Summary: I just wanted to play minecraft and run a small extra monitor, it works perfectly for this. WIth optifine installed on minecraft it runs on low settings. I don't mind that tho. It can really bring an old computer back to life. Only thing is, it has to be reinstalled everytime I turn my computer off. This can be very annoying at times.
