Windows 7: Aero and Glass effect

10 Sep 2009   #11

Windows 10 x64

It was the graphic card driver..
I also exprienced once.. however i am using Nvidia 9800GT..
It happened after i install a newer version of my graphic card driver.. then my Aero Effect is disabled without any reason.. and i cant find a way to enable it back..

my solution is System Restore.. I restored my system to the time before i install the driver.. and everythings is going fine.. :)

NOTE: If you're not able to system restore, i suggest you delete your Graphic Card Driver completely in Device Manager.. reboot.. (it will install a generic driver).. then install ur Latest Graphic Card again.. hope its working..

I've linked to the main article, which includes a How-to - and yes, it works on W7.
