Dont worry if system profiler says 128MB VRAM , go to system preferences , and start the screen saver, if you see the screen saver means QE/CI enable. use CUDA-Z tp check your graphic card : http://www.mediafire.com/?wzjzvj46m3i01bp

Some methods to check your graphic card works or not :

1st Method

This is the easiest method of all time. All you have to do is run Chess application. Fire it up and play chess. Now if you are able to move the piece . Congraluations , hardware acceleration (QE/CI) is working.

If you aren?t pleased or if you do want to check if it really works. I?ve included other alternative methods. Do continue to read

2nd Method

Check if screensaver works. Its fairly simple to do. All you have to do is go to System preferences and then select Desktop and Screen saves. Select Screen savers tab and do test out a screensaver. If you see a blank screen , it means that your Graphics acceleration is not working !

3rd Method

Test out Dashboard (Press F12) (or F3 if you?re using Apple Aluminium Slim Keyboard). Drag and drop a widget . If you see a ripple-like effect (or cool effects) when you add a widget. Congratulations everything is working

There are other ways to test as well for instance running DVD Player. Downloading and playing mac games such as Neverball.

4th Method (thanks to iHack)

Try Front Row. If Front Row works , QE/CI is in place , otherwise it wouldn?t work at all !

Old driver, old Cuda. Try at your own risk. Also, I don't think this will enable FrontRow on Lion
