Windows 7 Theme

Hi I'm wondering if anyone could suggest me a Windows 7 theme (plain black if possible) that will work on a computer that doesn't have a graphics card that supports the aero effect.

Cheers.

I'm not sure what kind of results you're going to get with the graphic card that doesn't support Aero, what happens when you try to used a regular aero theme doesn't turn into Windows classic?

If you want to try something this is my favorite dark theme charleston2378's deviantART gallery it's almost black.

Well atm I was thinking if I could at least get a theme that looks better than the default "your computer does not support aero look"

XP blue theme was even better than what I have now!

So what happens when you try to use the default Windows 7 Aero theme?

It shows windows classic i.e. like aero without the glass effect

I can't change the theme colour as I know my graphics card won't support it.

P.S. Although I think the theme is good above could anyone recommend me a theme that just has a black taskbar and the top of the window colour is black as opposed to everything being black.

Have you tried to use the Windows Classic Theme and then use Option 2 Steps 7 and 8 of this tutorial Window Color and Appearance - Change to change the color and appearance?

Hello mangoh

Just a little question or two. First what is the make and model of your video card? Second have you run a "Windows Experience Index?"
