If you look at your graphic card (Video Adapter), you will find that it is not "Aero Compatible", thats why you can only see basic windows theme, you need to replace your graphics card, sorry mate.

Start Menu Type "Windows Experience Index" in the search and click the item who shows up as "Check Windows Experience Index" Then, in the left side of the window you should see a pane where there's an option named "Adjust Visual Effects, click that.

Now adjust your visual effects as you want. This might solve your problem
