    Hi

    Which edition of Windows 7 are you using?

    If you are using the Starter edition, there are some features that are not available in that version. See the following article for more information.

    Let’s talk about Windows 7 Starter - Windows 7 Team

    If you are using Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate, try the following.

    Try the Aero troubleshooter.

    Open Control Panel/Troubleshooting.
    Under Appearance and Personalization, select the Display Aero desktop effects.

    In the Troubleshooter dialog, click the Advanced link and place a check mark in the Apply Repairs Automatically option.

    Click Next to run the troubleshooter.


    Thank You for using Windows 7

  • You will Probably need a PCI Video card, this is a link to PCI cards with drectx 9 and 10 I am sure there are others out there you can use Bing to find them. You should check with the PC manufacturer to make sure this is what you need.

    Hi

    Like Garry said, you will need to shop around for a video card that will meet your needs.

    Most modern, compatible, video cards will advertise if they support the different versions of Direct X and the Aero interface.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for using Windows 7
