Windows 7: Ati Mobility M3

01 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate - 32 bit
Ati Mobility M3

Hello, I am new on this forum, although not so new when it comes to computers. But my problem is (for all the way more advanced people than me out there)...
I have an 8MB ATi Mobility M3 (Video Card) built into my Dell Latitude C600. I can run Windows 7 pretty good (Ultimate, 32 Bit), but it doesn't show Aero. Is there any way for Aero to work on my horribly outdated specs?

Also, I have tried the registry thing...doesn't work, at least not in this situation. I cannot afford a new graphics card, so please don't tell me to buy another one, even though the one I have was made generations ago.

Sorry bro, but there isn't any possible way of forcing aero on to your computer. I am not saying to buy a new graphics card, though you could try and find some drivers for your gfx card.

Aero doesn't work if your gfx card is incapable. But it should work, because even an intel 945 can run aero.
