Any idea how i can force aero in vista home? I have "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 (Up to 256MB shared)" (965 chipset) accelerator on mine Dell Latitude D630 laptop. 2gigs of ram.

Mine windows are not transperent, how i can force them to be???


I have made these changes to registry with no help.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DWM]
"EnableMachineCheck"=dword:00000000
"Animations"=dword:00000001
"Blur"=dword:00000001
"Composition"=dword:00000001
"CompositionPolicy"=dword:00000002
"UseAlternateButtons"=dword:00000000
"Glass"=dword:00000001
"Metal"=dword:00000000
"ForceSoftwareD3D"=dword:00000000
"DebugMessages"=dword:00000000
"DebugZOrder"=dword:00000000
"DebugMouse"=dword:00000000
"DebugDumpTree"=dword:00000000

Any idea?

the EnableMachineCheck setting doesn't work any longer. Beginning with the Feb CTP Build 5308 you must have an compatible Dx9 card with WDDM drivers. Do you have the latest driver installed?

Verify what your rating is in computer properties. You might have to rerun the ratings test to score high enough to enable aero. There are no switches or reg keys to enable this anymore.

You were right. Strange but one guy had Basic also as me, but he had Aero. I think DELL removed it from their version of Vista. Anyway i installed Vista Ultimate, and now i have Aero fully working.

Thank you all for your help.
