    Thanks guys.
    Win Stupid was telling me that my video drivers are incapable of aero, and that I should get newer ones. So I (stupid #2) wasted a whole day finding different versions for my card and installing them, just for nothing.
    Since I’m an IT guy, I was inches from burning the darn notebook.
    I ran the performance scoring and aero turned on like a charm.
    Thanks again.
    That was crazy.
