|When are you going to buy a REAL video card??|
Are you sure you're waiting long enough for the NV Control Panel to load? What is it that you hope to accomplish by using it?
Not sure if this works for Vista but give it a shot:
- right click on the desktop, then click Properties
- click the Settings tab, then the Advanced button
- click the NVIDIA tab, then click 'Start the NVIDIA Control Panel'
