Well, it's set to 256MB by default, but since it seems that you have not been in the BIOS before, then I would recommend to not worry about it to be safe. I wouldn't want you to accidentally change something by mistake and cause some other issue. 256MB meets the requirements for Aero.

How long as Aero not been working for you?

ej18 go to computer on the start menu and right click it and select properties. Left click properties.
Your systmes "rateing" is displayed on that page. It will be a number rangeing from 1.0 to 7.9.

last step:
aero effect and transparency

If your rateing is below 3.0 areo will shut itself down and become unusable.

EJ,

Well, since it worked before you formated, do you have the latest graphics driver installed? If you do, then you might see if uninstalling and reinstalling it may help.

I'm extremely sorry to intercept and as Im not adding any solution to the problem and I dont even doubt your intelligency but this is not true.

My system rating is 2.9 and AERO works for me as it works for any other normal aero user.

I humbly request you to check your facts again.

EJ,

I'm starting to believe that your graphics or graphics driver may just not support Aero either.

I'm not sure what generic or otherwise graphics driver version Windows 7 installed for you, but this is all that I could find for your SiS Mirage 3+ at the manufacturer's website quoted below. There's not even any support for Vista.

Well it actually depends on the computer. On mine when my system rating was 1.0 ( i didn't have some required drivers) my aero got shut of. But on my freinds comp who has a rating of 2 something his aero works perfectly.
