Go Start>rightclick Computer>Properties>Advanced Settings>Performance settings>Visual Effects, tick the box Enable Transparent Glass and last box Use Visual Styles... which will enable Win7 aero graphics.

Now rightclick Desktop>Personalize>Choose an Aero Theme then set up a Desktop Background slideshow.

If this doesn't work, type Aero in Start Search box and run the Troubleshooter which will explain why.

Work through these basic troubleshooting steps to uncover and fix any further problems.
