I brought a GeForce4 MX 440 and with it i got a program(WinFast A170 DDRT) which has the drivers on it. There's a problem though. When I try to install the drivers a message comes up saying "NOT Leadtek(the company which makes the program)Product, or install from each product. So I went to the individual drivers directory and tried to install from there but I got this message "not Leadtek product or wrong GPU". I then went to nvidia's web site and downloaded a driver from there. It installed ok but in the device manager i cant find the card. I really want this card to work but I've done all I can so if someone can help me I will be extremely thankful

Well does the display function properly? And can you see the cards name listed under Display Properties - Settings Tab? The drivers from nVidia should work just fine. What company produced your card? It may differ from the video chip.

The Leadtek WinFast A170DDRT is an excellent card.  But what you shouldn't be using is the packaged drivers.. they're shockers.

Here's a couple of things to try.

Firstly bios flash to the video card.. and secondly the latest revision drivers.  Both available here:

G'luck.
