Your Windows Vista computer's windows Aero features are not being displayed. What is the problem?
You need to make sure you have the correct hardware installed, first and foremost. To improve performance, Windows Vista disables Aero unless it detects appropriate hardware to support it. Make sure your computer has a WDDM-compatible 128 MB graphics card that supports DirectX 9.0 and Pixel Shader 2.0. The minimum requirements are:
- 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
- 1 GB of random accesss memory (RAM)
- 128 MB graphics card
