Can you go to device manager (type device manager in search) and go to the display tab. See if the the driver is installed and working properly. If it isn't there look for any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them.

if everything is ok, try re-running wei. if wei ends up with the same score dont worry abt it. Its just a number and mine changes like the weather

hmm thanks anw.

Im sorry I thought wei only, lets try this again

lower wei with no aero IS somethng to be concerned about. Is there anything in event viewer that started about the same time as the aero fail? Any errors in evtvwr? Any hardware changes?

hi aus91blah,

i have an asus eah4890, and my graphics wei is 7.6

luckily for me, i have aero with no problems.

i suggest you download something like driver cleaner, which will totally remove all old drivers files hanging around your system, then download the latest 9.9 drivers from ati.

(oh, by the way, i didn't install the asus drivers/utilities as i found the voltage tweak didn't do much for my card except raise temperatures.)

I have the same card and have had similar problems.

My score is also 6.0 and running 3DMark 06 I get the following error:

IDirect3DDevice9::Present failed: Device lost (D3DERR_DEVICELOST)

I've tried numerous driver installs from latest ATi's, ASUS drivers and Guru3D drivers (back dated) and nothing seems to work. Esp with the latest ATi drivers I get an error when installing, stating installer cannot find a .INF file and quits mid install.

Strangely all my games run fine. And device manager correctly reports EAH4890 listed, driver working and no issues.

I don't have the Aero problem, Aero has been working fine from day 1 of this install of Windows 7
But the EAH4890 has me scratching my head ....

Aero problems
This is the problem: When aero is active titles are blurry or cut. Gadgets also have problems. Often aero deactivates with a error. The problem disappears with the basic theme. That may be? My video card is a radeon 3450 hd. The windows 7 is the 7600 build... Can you help me?:huh:

Anyone having Aero Problems??
Hey everyone, Is anyone experiencing Areo problems with the color?? Like I set my theme to the nice blue glass look and then when I open recycle bin or something it will make it go back to black glass for some reason. Anyone heard about this? Any replies would be great!
