How to Enable Aero in Windows 7 in unsupported Graphics

Hello,
I have Dell Dimension 2400,I installed Windows 7 x86 successfully.Of course all drivers also.
I want to enable Aero in my window.Is there any hack or Utility software to enable Aero for my unsupported Graphics Card or I have to change my PCI VGA Card?

Thanks,

Check out how this guy got his Dell 2400 to work with Aero, scroll down to post #5. He installed a Gforce 5500FX which he purchased for 25 bucks off ebay. He ran a 2.9 wei for the graphics score which would run aero.

My suggestion is if your going to purchase a grapihics card for Areo buy one with a little more umph, Why buy one that has to work at running Areo? Fabe

The registry hacks only work for graphics cards that can support Aero, but something other than the graphics card and/or drivers is stopping it.

You can either use third-party programs or just buy a new graphics card, as said.
