Windows 7: Strange aero problem

30 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Strange aero problem

Hi all,

I am using Windows Ultimate 32bit. My video card is Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family. The driver is up to date.

I keep getting the weird thing as you can see below when I'm using an aero theme, especially when I browse pictures or open videos. Everything works fine when I turn aero off.

I have no idea why this happens. My friend has the same video card as mine and never experiences such problem.

Thank you.
