hmm have you tried running it in compatibility mode ie right click short cut, compatibility, run program with .... etc?

Also mess around with the graphic options within bf1942

Hello,

Have you downloaded and installed the DirectX9 Runtimes on your Vista install? this is the best way for DX9 games to play correctly on Vista.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello Mooky,

Yes you have DirectX 10 as that comes prebuilt into Vista. But the issue is that you are running a DX9 game. While DX10 can emulate DX9 it does not do it well. So what you can do is install the DX9 Runtimes which will NOT overwrite your DX10 but work along side of it.

Therefor for whatever game you play be it a DX10 or DX9 game the appropiate DX will load and work perfectly with it. Which should help with the Vector Shader issue you have recieved. I think.

This is just a guess. As it could be something more or less complicated. I am just trying to help troubleshoot. Link ot DX9 Runtimes:

Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

*Validation Required.

Cheers,
Mak

lol I think he is saying that your video card may not be up to the task. Thats the problem with onboard video cards.

Even if you do get it working I doubt it will be very playable.
