I think I must disable Aero theme before playing

Well, unfortunately Heavy games aren't working fast at all its latency is very high even when Aero is off

also I discovered that my ac adapter is not functioning right after I got it fixed at a local technical service company in Egypt (which is not dell's company)
I'll buy new one and see what happens
also on dell website my laptop model is not supported to windows 7
they have Dell inspiron 1525, inspiron 1526, but not inspiron 1520
