The Geforce5 generation isn't supported in Vista nor is older generations. Nvidia dropped support for every thing from the TNT to the FX5900.

According to the Nvidia web site, they did release one final driver for your card that was Windows Vista compatible...

It dates back to late 2006, but it should work. I believe nforce4max is referring to Nvidia's decision to not release a Windows 7 driver for your card.

I am referring that they discontinued support for these older cards below the geforce6 generation.

I understand they no longer support those cards... but the final driver released for his card is a WHQL driver. The OP should be able to get his card to work with Windows Vista 32 bit.

I've used those drivers for my old 5500, and they worked fine in 7 Pro x64, up until she died. RIP.
