So, could someone running Windows 7 with Aero ENABLED please run regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\DWM and take a screenshot or list the entrys and values it displays? This will doubtfully be the complete fix, but it'll help me on my research, and I'll let you GMA 9XX users know!
Sorry, but you're on a path to nowhere there, believe me. Early versions of vista didn't have hardware accelerated Aero effects, so just about any video card could do it. They changed that in RC iirc, and from then on 915 has been unable to do it because it lacks the specific hardware required to accelerate it.
