Help with Aero glass in Vista Ultimate

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was one of the people that took part in the program run by M$ in which they monitored your system for a few months and then sent you a free copy of Vista Ultimate or M$ Office 2007.

Well I got my free copy (two not just one) last week in the mail. I installed Vista Ultimate x32 on my laptop listed below. It gave my system a 1.0 in the system ratting and will not allow me to use the vista aero theme.

Is there any way I could trick vista into thinking I have a different video chipset or that it his faster so that it will enable the option to turn on the aero and aero glass theme/effects?

ALSO PLEASE DO NOT MAKE DUMB POSTS ABOUT HOW SLOW MY LAPTOP IS (I ALREADY KNOW ITS A PEACE OF JUNK) OR THAT IT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RUN THE AERO THEME AT A SPEED THAT YOU PERSONALY WOULD DEEM "OK" OR "USABLE". THAT IS UP TO ME TO DICIDE FOR MY SELF.

Sorry, I've never heard of a way to trick it. Besides, it'll just massively slow down your already slow computer anyways.

I'd stick to WinXP if I were you.

As far as I know, I have yet to see a hack to get around that. I have seen score spoofing but they don't change Aero or not.

You don't have to yell.. I don't think vista will enable aero without a better score to prevent lockups. Try turning off UAC (shotgunning).

Are you sure you installed your video drivers right?
