well the hardware was capable of running aero in Vista just fine. The taskbar will change at the bottom, but when I click 'save changes'.
When I click on a Windows Theme, it shows me the 1. desktop background, window color, sounds and screen saver. Not the Window Color for a moment goes to what it should be but then it changes to 'Custom' as does the theme. So no matter what theme I select, it's always custom, because the window color doesn't change
