Geforce 2 MX-400 (64 bit) with vista
Before you installed the Geforce graphics card was your monitor connected to a video output on the motherboard?
If this is he case you may have to disable the onboard video card from the BIOS.
You can check by swapping the monitor's video connector between each of the video outputs.
If Vista detects a video card and you had not installed the video driver, it would install standard VGA driver, you can then install the Geforce driver.

The geforce2 mx400 is an agp video card. If you want to stick to the same agp slot you don't have many options these days and the prices are very similar to PCIE slots except the PCIE is a newer technology that would provide a lot better performance.
If you can afford it you should upgrade your motherboard to one that support PCIE and then get a good PCIE video card. The best price/performance these days are the 8600GT cards so look into that. The money you save buying a new video card may even contribute significantly to a new motherboard plus you get other benefits with a newer mobo ie. faster ram, SATA technology more usb ports and support for more CPUs.
Just becareful on what CPU you are using at the moment and make sure the new motherboard supports your cpu.
alternatively look for a used agp slot graphics card ie. the ati 9800pro or nvidia 6xxx series is a good choice of a slight upgrade from where you are.

My windows media player wont play movies
Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.
