    Thanks Pete for that snippet of information. I guess I will have to stick with

    2940 is a very old card indeed, but has Vista drivers which should work for
    Windows 7.

    drivers. The cards not all that old, a few years so I thought it would be

    I repartitioned and kept my XP partition just in case, but can also use
