ati radeon xpress 200 series wont let me use aero

Hello I am using a ati radeon xpress 200 series graphics card

I installed Windows 7 in Jan this year, never had a problem - until today - the theme as re-set itself to the old windows version and it will not allow me to select any other theme (which it has been running fine still Jan - up until today??)

The probelm states - the current video card cannot display aero effects (even though it has been for a few months?)

PLease can you help - I have tried looking through websites but to find no help there

Hope someone can help me (new to this forum today )

Did you update your video drivers, or did Windows update install them automatically today?

If so, you may need to refresh your WEI index score

First and foremost, make sure you have updated drivers.

Second, sometimes if there has been an update to Windows it can forget your WEI settings and revert. If you run it again, it should pick up the card properly and recognize the card.

Right click your My Computer, click on properties, there should be an area about halfway down for Windows Experience Index (WEI), make sure you open it up and run it.
