The window experience index scoce is based on the hardware inside of your computer. To increase it you would have to get a new computer or upgrade some components inside it.

Hi there,

In order to experience Windows Aero effects you generally need to have a minimum windows experience base score of at least 3.0. To determine your score go to your start menu - control panel - system and maintenance - performance information and tools.

In this screen you will see your score for a number of different components of your computer. One of these is graphics, which is the score for running windows aero. This score generally needs to be at least a 3.0 to get all the functionality of Aero running smoothly on your computer. The only thing you can try to do is update your graphics drivers to see if this can increase your rating. This can sometimes be done through windows update. The LG driver unfortunately will not be able to help you in this regard as it is only a driver for the display, not the graphics capabilities of your computer.

The only option would be to look into getting a new video card. With a new one you should be able to experience Aero effects again.

How can I tell if a game will run on this computer?


Check its <span>Windows</span> Experience Index score <p>The <span>Windows</span> Experience Index is a measure of how capable your computer is. To calculate it, <span>Windows</span> analyzes the hardware and software on your PC and then assigns it a score. The higher the number, the more likely your PC can handle games and other demanding programs.<br /> <p>When you buy a game, make sure the minimum score recommended by the publisher (typically printed on the box) is <span>less than, or equal to,</span> the <span>Windows</span> Experience Index for your computer. That's one way to ensure it will run smoothly.<br /> <p><br /> Check its hardware requirements <p>Even if your computer's <span>Windows</span> Experience Index score is good enough for a particular title, it's possible that an individual piece of hardware-a video card, for example-on your PC isn't.<br /> <p>That's why it's also critical to study the <span>minimum system requirements</span> listed on the game packaging and confirm your computer meets or exceeds them. Few programs put a heavier demand on your computer than games. If your computer's specs fall short, a game might run sluggishly-or not at all. <br /> <p>The components game publishers are typically most concerned with are:<br /> <ul> <li> <p><span>Central processing unit (CPU):</span> Make sure both the CPU speed and model meet the game requirements.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Random access memory (RAM):</span> Many games now require at least one gigabyte of RAM.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Video card:</span> Your video card must have a certain amount of memory and have a compatible <span>chipset</span> (publishers usually list the make and model of compatible cards). Cards must also typically support DirectX 9 or later.<br /> </li> <li> <p><span>Hard disk</span>: Most games require a certain amount of free space.<br /></li></ul>

How to tell which computer is the best for the money!


this works on windows based computers, laptops, and desktops. The people at most computer store's don't know or don't tell you this tip, because they are sales people trying to make a sell.(1). Vista, and Windows 7 have a feature built in that tells you how well of an experiance you should have while operating, based on many different factors.(2). Vista's Windows experiance index is 1.0 to 5.9, Windows 7's Windows experiance index's range is 1.0 to a perfect 7.9, as you see the higher the index the better performance, Ergo experiance you will have with the computer.(3) Left Click on the start globe (microsoft flag), then take curser up to the right and Right Click on Computer, curser down to properties, then Left Click, a screen will pop up and show a Windows Experiance Index.Sometimes you will find 2 computer's that vary by a couple points, and the more expensive one has a lower Score. Just make sure they both are Vista, or both Windows 7. Good luck shoping for that nice performing PC

I have a Compaq Presario sr111onx desktop with Windows 7 Pro OS 32 bit and it is slow will it be better to use Windows xp?


It depends on the Experience Rating Index that Win 7 gives you. To see the rating, right click on My Computer and select Properties. If it asks to refresh the rating index, do so. After that, check which one has the lowest rating. If it's the processor that gets the lowest rating (if it is below 2) then yes, you should install Windows XP. If it is the graphic card, or the RAM memory that has the lowest rating, you can upgrade them to make it run better and keep Windows 7.

You can see more about the rating scores on this Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Experience-Index-Understand-and-improve-your-computers-performance-in-Windows-Vista

Please i want to enable aero in windows 7 my direct x is 11 and 64mb graphics


Hi waquashashmi,

A way to know if your Windows 7 system supports Aero or not is to look at Windows Experience Index score. The score (both base score and subscore for graphics component) should be equal or higher than 3.0 for Aero to work. To view your Windows Experience Index, go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System, then click on "Windows Experience Index".

To display Aero effects such as transparency in Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that Windows Experience Index has been calculated and computed.
  2. Click on Start menu.
  3. Type the following text into the Start Search box: Aero
  4. Click on a search result listing under Control Panel group that named as the following: Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects
    arun_zac_16.jpg
    Trick: If you don't see "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects" in the search results, click on Control Panel to see all Aero related items in Control Panel.
  5. An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button. arun_zac_17.jpg
  6. The troubleshooting wizard will try to detect any problem by running a series of checks against various components required to make Aero works and running, such as video memory, Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) service, color depth, theme, power settings and etc. At the end of the analysis, the wizard will attempt to fix the issues related to Aero service and restart the Aero feature. arun_zac_18.jpg

Thank you for using Fixya,

As I understand it, the scoring depends on the hard drive space, the CPU speed, the memory size, and the number of programs running.
You can run the utililty MSCONFIG (from the box just above the start button and uncheck most of the stuff in the startup tab.

When you run the score it breaks it down into different areas - processing, graphics etc.

Which is the lowest? ie which is dragging your score down?

This is the area you will need to improve - if it is graphics causing the low score you will be out of luck as it is inbuilt but you could improve storage and memory.
