Aero theme missing?

Hey guys, after messing around my entire OS ( i red your tips and tutorials one by one ) i just realized on obvious thing: I'm not using the aero theme, so i dont get the transparency. I'm using the basic them, i wonder why? how can i enable it in build 7000 ? i'm pretty sure my laptop can handle it. i don't see aero in the theme list!

Edit: guess i'm wrong... google told me my chip is not aero capable. ok, they blowed all the fun for me

I just found your thread, and your edit comments.... and... i think google is lying to you there... aero should work for you just fine, as long as its the same card you have in your specs, the 8400gs... i'm running a 6800gt and a mobility x1600 on the laptop and having aero work just fine....


hope you got this working.... only a 4 month old thread here

Did you go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools and click on rate my computer?
