Aero Visual Style is forced to switch into Vista Basic under load RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've installed Vista on my Toshiba Tecra M4 laptop. It has 64 mb vram, so Aero is available and runs pretty good every time i boot up and start working. But later, if I run a large number of programs and CPU load sometimes reach 100%, DWM disables Aero automatically and turns on Vista Basic color scheme. If I shut down some programs and restart DWM service, Aero comes back… till next heavy load period.


    I'd like to disable this "automatic optimization" even in the prejudice of performance. I've already set "EnableMachineCheck" registry key to "0" as some tweak guides advice, but this seems to be not working in my case.
