    For AERO in either Vista or W7 you MUST have the following minimum hardware support on the video card;

    - DirectX 9 (i.e. hardware support for DX9 not just DX 9 or 10 software installed)

    - Pixel Shader 2.0 (again, must be supported by the hardware)

    - WDDM driver compatible with the specific video card & OS (an XPDM driver will NOT provide the required support for AERO to work)

    - 128MB of dedicated (integrated) video memory is NOT required, however a minimum of 64MB dedicated video memory with at least 1GB of system memory is needed. With only 64MB most AERO features will work but maximum resolutions will be limited & the visual effects will be slower and less smooth. In some cases the driver may be designed for use with only 128MB and higher in order to use AERO & you may see artifacts or other issues when only using less than 128MB with such drivers.

    No amount of patches or registry entries will enable AERO if you do not have the required video hardware to support AERO features. Any software that provides emulation for missing hardware features will likely place a heavy load on your CPU and the trade-off in performance won't be worth the visual eye-candy that AERO provides.

    AERO capable video cards (i.e. older AGP or even PCI Nvidia 6200 256MB ~ $30US) are so cheap now that the simple solution is just to buy a new video card, especially if you want to take advantage of all the new AERO features that W7 adds.

    If you can't afford a new video card, just stay on XP, with 7 your computer will go so slooooooooow if you force Aero than you'll throw your PC by the window !!!
