AMD graphics with Window color. :(

I want to know i have HP Pavilion g6-1a30us and Graphics card by AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 and AMD Dual Core Processor.

I installed windows 7 Ultimate and at first when i haven't installed graphics driver in windows 7 personalization >Window Color i was not getting option to change my Toolbar color option (window color which applies on all window border and Window toolbar) like a window was opening but there was no option for selecting color but it was like an option shown in win XP in desktop properties option. After when i installed my graphics card still i didn't got that color change option.

same as this when i newly installed window in Dell inspiron N5110 15R i wasn't getting that option but when i installed my Intel HD graphics driver after rebooting i got that option.

You run the Windows Experience Index?

Windows Experience Index - Update or Refresh Score

Sometimes Aero won't work depending on the GPU/driver without the WEI being run first, on supported hardware that is.
