First thing you are using a BETA version. Then ofcourse it will have problems. Thats for testing purposes only. If you encountered this message then its proabably a bug with that. Just tell the MS abt this.
The other thing is that many of us still dont have Vista installed!

i got nvidia 6800 ultra 256 and i try to upgrade to ForceWare Release 80 Version 84.21 Release Date March 17, 2006 (WHQL Certified)

IT DIDN'T WORK.
The vista beta release got its own Nvidia 6800 Ultra drivers from Microsoft Corp. which is installed at present.

just go to device manager, uninstall the graphic driver and restart - when ur pc restarts it will take the default microsoft corp. driver for ur graphic.. enjoy

peace

1) The Geforce 4 MX 4000 cannot support the Aero glass UI, u have to use Aero standerd

2) Current NVIDIA drivers support only Geforce FX or above graphics card for Windows Vista properly

the problem i guess, is cos your gfx card cannot handle the compositing of MCE in Vista....u cannot do anything except for giving feedback to MS

Currently using Forceware 88.61 .. working fine . i think its the GPU u have .. make sure u have Aero disabled ...

Also i don't think the current drivers support anything below the FX series ... so u better stick to the generic drivers installed by the OS itself ...

of VISTA ... it needs tooo have higher GRAPHICS CARD ...

Not actually , even a FX5200 should do in this case ... more like a card with dx9 support ... the MX4000 is a dx7 card ...
