A graphic card with 64MB and 512MB of RAM are below the requirements for Windows7
You won't be able to use any Aero themes

Most probably you have not installed your graphics drivers (which won't ever support Windows 7 as your 64MB card is too old)

Hi Mihajlo, welcome to the forums

Your first issue is that Windows has detected your card as Standard VGA Adapter which is why you cannot change past 640x480. Your best option at this moment is to find out the exact make & model of your card and download the relevant drivers for it.
Note   Note
You may find that the latest drivers will be for Vista so try installing them in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7

I have had Windows 7 installed on a rig with only a 64MB card and did indeed manage to get the Aero themes working but it did behave very sluggish.

Another thing to note is the version of DirectX that your card can handle natively e.g. what the hardware was written for. You'll find that if your card does not fully support DX 9 or above then you wont be able to have the Aero look.

Welcome to SevenForums.

I congratulate you on getting Win 7 to run on your computer. If you can get some more ram, then 1 GB and preferably two GB will bring a big performance improvement.
