I'm pretty sure that card only supports shader model 1.4, and Aero needs shader model 2.0 i.e. you need a DX9 card, and while the 9250 is DX9 compatible to an extent, it really is only DX8.1.
Yep only 1.4

Open Device Manager by right clicking on "Computer", choosing Properties, then when System Properties opens, you should see "Device Manager" in upper left... Click that. Once DM opens, locate your Display Adapter, click it to expand that section, then double click on your Radeon 9250...

Go to the "Driver" tab, and choose Update Driver, then navigate to the location where you have those dll files... that should work!

hi this may or may not work, but when ive clean installed 7 in the past and aero was not automattically enabled this trick always worked for me,

Search 'aero' in the start menu and you should get something like 'check for/fix problems with aero', with mine it simply checks through a few things then says everything is fine, the screen flashes and there is aero!

Hope this trick works for you.

ryank,
Your suggestion did the trick on my Compaq laptop which uses the 8200M chip.
Thanks! I would not have even thought about that.
