Yes, this not a yes or no question. Wait for others then you decide. It was very nice of you to give me rep, thank you.

Aero will default to off in low-graphics installs.

Make sure you check optional Windows Updates for newer drivers than what is provided by installer.

Any drivers missing in Device Manager can then be found on the manufacturer's SUpport Downloads webpage for your model computer.

Check for a new BIOS version update there, too. You can find your BIOS version by typing System Information in the Start search box or run the Belarc Advisor which can also audit all of your software Product Keys.

You will want to do this after installing Windows 7, though most of the drivers should be installed automatically upon installation....

You are very mistaken, we get a lot in return. The great feeling we get with the, "Thank you it works is priceless".
