Does it mean that I won't be able to run BFME2? Or it's just not recommended to run with Geforce4? I'm really angry of that. :/

It depends on which GeForce card you have. They aren't supporting the MX series, but they are supporting the GeForce 4 TI, GeForce 4 Go, and GeForce 4200.

Yes, I see it runs with other Geforce 4 series. That's why I'm asking, if it runs with Geforce 4 MX 440?

A useful link here:
http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_bfme2_home.html
Under the image of bfme2 there is a link for testing you system specs. I recommend you run it before you buy the game, some of my friends have been caught out with there graphics cards not having pixel shaders.

My video card is Radeon 9550 or something like that, and it works fine on the demo.

I'm thinking of buying a laptop. I have Bfme 2 and was wondering if it runs on Vista. Also I was wondering if I could uninstall bfme 2 from one computer and download it on to another?
