Windows 7: Aero problem - no Aero

Look - it boots - I'm using it now. All that is missing is the aero (transparencies), and the other wobbly bit being the AMD Firepro GPU, which, running on this HDD, has a problem with the latest drivers. It is temporarily disabled now, otherwise, on restart, I get a message sayng that this GPU has a problem.

Surely all this migrating, and clean install stuff is not strictly necessary.
I do not want to lose about 30GB of work, plus being stubborn...

Actually, from my experience and point of view, yes it is.

It is indeed tedious to get a workstation setup like you had it before. In my experience, it takes me about 3 days to do that and I have a somewhat complicated setup compared to my peers. But it beats 5 days of mucking around drivers and workarounds trying to get it to work and in the end might fail to do so.

File backups is surely not an issue if you can partition your drives or if you've got external hard drives or any other media for that matter.

In any event, I'm honestly out of ideas on this one. Maybe someone else will read this thread and chime in other ideas.

The first part of your post implies it is. You're carrying an HDD over from another rig and booting a different rig with it and are having problems, unsurprisingly. I've offered my advice which I believe is sound enough, if you don't want to take it I'll leave you to it.

Hi,
There are many problems that can disable the aero effects.
The first thing you should do is to TROUBLESHOOT
to troubleshoot aero go to :-
Windows explorer and type "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting"(without quotes) in address bar
You are now in Control Panel Now click on Appearance and Personalization (make sure u r connected to internet)
Now Click on Aero. If there will be any problem the troubleshooter will fix

OR

Right click on Desktop and now Personalize
Now click on Aero theme (windows 7).
If this do not helps then see the next method

OR

Open windows explorer and in the address bar type
"Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools"(without quotes)
Now the windows experience index will open from there click on Run the assessment.(Do this if the second method does not help). After this try to change the theme to aero theme.

Many Thanks,
HelpGiver

The GPU is disabled and has problems if it isn't, Aero is not going to work. The system needs a clean install of Windows 7 on that hard drive to get it working properly.
