how are you running Vista?
boot camp or with VMware / pharrells?
With boot camp it might just be the case that you need to install the drivers, which can be found here (those are for the 32bit edition of vista) 64bit can be found here

If your using VMware of similar, then it won't come up, it doesn't have primary function over the graphics card.
