Dell D400 with Intel GM855 GFX, forcibly enable Aero?

I have a Dell D400, uses the Intel GM 855 and I'm wondering if can do any hacks to forcibly enable Aero?

Any help would be great, thanks.

Oh, on a side note, I found the little hack for Vista on how you enable it but it doesn't seem to be working for me in Windows 7.

Maybe there is another method?

Im assuming you have the latest intel driver? I have a dell as well and the dell driver doesn't work. Are you 32bit or 64?

The Dell D400 is a 32bit system, it's a single core Pentium M.

Not sure which driver I have but I guess I can try updating it.

Windows Experience Index. It should have run when you installed win 7. You can re-rn it and check the ratings by typing wei in search and clicking on it
