The GF4 MX440 is an extremely old card. It only supports pixel shader 1.3. If you need to know what pixel shader is, knock yourself out:

All you really need to know is that you need a card that supports pixel shader 2.0 (or better) & the MX440 doesn't support it. nVidia PS 2.0 support started with the FX series so you at least need to get an FX5200. I suggest you get something a little better. Below is a GPU data base. If you look in the features column, you'll see which PS version is supported.

Older cards supported Pixel Shaders (PS) & Vertex Shaders (VS). These were eventually dropped & replaced with a unified Shader Model (SM), so you'll see that more modern cards will have the SM version listed.
