Hi, post a picture of your desktop, maybe with a small folder opened on it,
try and get the fish like mine, or use whatever background you have to see if it is transparent.

If you go to c:\windows\resources\themes and double-click aero.theme does anything extra happen?

Looks like Aero Shake is working now (Im sure it wasnt before...)

Mabye the hacks are not working because i have no drivers for my graphics chipset at all..?

Can't activate aero-picture1.png

The forcing aero thing did not work still coming up with this message "The current video card may support Aero if the video card driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the video card vendor for the latest WDDM-compliant driver for the video card."

the result I got for the WEI is 2.5 that is good right? still having problems with aero!!
