First take a deep breath and calm down. It'll be hard to help you if you are upset.

Once you feel a bit relaxed answer these few questions;
  • Are you using Windows 7 RC or Windows 7 RTM?
  • Where did you get the copy of Windows 7 from? (be honest)
  • Are you using a 32-bit version of Windows or a 64-bit version of Windows?

To knock out the option that you simply downloaded the wrong one, can you try the one here?

The latest drivers for the FX 5500 that I found are 96.85. Not sure if they would allow you to enable aero, but they are made for your card. You can get them here

The version I linked him to is 190.62.

It was linking me to the wrong drivers.. these don't support 5500.. at all.. any of the 5000 models actually.
