Welcome,

If you fill out system specs, I may be able to give more help. It appears that ram is verylow for Aero, off the top I think that is the problem.

Per this article 5 mb of ram is minimum required.

Go to the website of the mfg of your graphics card and go to support. You can download the most current card.

I agree with Richard. Your specs are so low, you will not be happy with Aero at all if you can manage to enable it.

It is disabled on your machine for a good reason.
