Windows 7: Current video card may support Aero w/ a driver compliant w/ WDDM

Current video card may support Aero w/ a driver compliant w/ WDDM

I recently purchased a used HP 2000 Notebook and performed a fresh install of windows 7 to wipe it. I did not test Aero prior to doing a fresh install but considering it came from the factory with Windows 7 on it I figured it should be able to support Aero. Is this not the case?


This is the message that appears when I try to troubleshoot my problem with Aero.

"The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."

I tried searching for solutions via google but nothing I have tried has worked for me. So far I have tried the following:

-Troubleshooting
-Windows updates
-Updating my driver
-Restarting Device manager

Aero isn't working and when Troubleshooting didn't work it told me "Video card driver doesn't support Aero effects". I tried using the Aero Activator and that didn't work either. I have a EVGA GeForce GTX 650 graphics card. Please help. Thank you.
