Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Aero Not Working

Hi all, I have the 64bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium and Aero shut down and I can't get it to re-start. I have tried troubleshooting but that hasn't worked. I have tried activating an Aero theme but nothing happens.
Ty in advance!

Hello RedChampion, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check each item below to see if that may be able to help.
  • The computer display color depth must be set to 32 bits per pixel.
  • Desktop composition needs to be enabled (checked) in Visual Effects.
  • The Desktop Window Manager Session Manager and Themes Services need to be set as Started and Automatic.
  • Refresh or update your WEI score. You will need an WEI score minimum of 2.0 in both Graphics & Gaming graphics in order for Aero to be activated.
  • Windows 7 will need to be activated.
Hope this helps,
