Windows Aero Not Enabled

I've done most of the common fix's but none of them have done anything

Enable the service through services.msc

Auto repair troubleshooter

Microsoft fix it

Windows Update

Graphics card drivers

None of them seem to work, help would be much appreciated

Have you tried this?

Theme - Change or Save
  • Right click an empty area of the desktop.
  • Click Personalize in the menu that appears.
  • Select one of the thumbnails displayed in either My Themes or Aero Themes.
