Windows 7: aero peek gone missing

aero peek gone missing

I am puzzled as to why my aero peek display (is this the little mini pictures of the open windows?) has diappeared when I hover my mouse over the taskbar. All I have now is the title of the page, rather than a miniature of what's open. I did have to update display drivers a couple of days ago after having some nasty display problems that led to BSOD. Could that have caused it? When I go to Task Bar -Properties I can't check "Use Aero Peek to preview desktop" - it's not a selectable option. Any ideas???

wolfiemanchu, welcome to the Seven Forums.

First it would help if you went here,

and filled in your system specs. We can't offer much in the way of advice without knowing at least what you have for a video card What driver version you just installed would help as well.
