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.
That was crazy.
Thank you very much dude! It works!
i just did this, and it gave me a 4.1 score..which of course is higher than 3.0..but still, no aero effects =/ and i cant select aero themese either, it complains about several things..i need 32bit colors, which i have..etc etc..WHATS THE DEAL? =/ my pc now looks like win 98 since a couple of days ago, after it switched itself from cool to..win 98 =/
