Taskbar Thumbnail issues

So i have searched the forum and the internet for the last few hrs

i just recently installed the beta directly from MS (bld 7000)

everything seems to be working fine, but im not getting a thumbnail preview of open programs running in my taskbar (its just a simple txt based preview with an icon for the program)

sorry if this has been answered but can anyone point me in the right direction for some help?

Go to Personalization either by right clicking a blank space in the desktop or through Control Panel and tell me if you can edit your colors.

If you have all your video drivers installed then you need to refresh your WEI score and then you will have Aero.

So you have to refresh the WEI score for Aero to activate?

Yes you do, if you've either freshly installed Windows or installed a new graphics card. Aero isn't enabled by default, and once the system's WEI is calculated, Windows recognizes your card as either capable or incapable of Aero, and acts accordingly.
