Please see this forum post. It's possible your system is not compatible with aero. There's a link here to check this. If you download and run it you'll find out whether your graphics hardware can run aero.
On the other hand, you may need to update the drivers for your system to vista drivers. Go to windows update and scan your system. Apply all the updates offered there. If you need further help updating drivers for vista, see this tutorial.
Good luck.
If your system is up to specs, write back and we'll explore it with you...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Windows vista will only activate the Aero theme if it detects the video card or on board video is capable of running it. Now did you upgrade from windows XP or is this a Brand new install? If it is a brand new install make sure the motherboard and video drivers are up to date. You can go into the performance information and tools in the control panel(classic view) and this will run a series of tests on the computer to give you a windows rating. And to the left under tasks you can adjust the visual settings. If windows rates your computer low in the graphics department then it will de-activate the Aero capability due to the hardware. And if you did a upgrade and are looking for missing files look for the windows.old folder and you may find some of your files from the previous install. If you did a fresh installation(format) then all of the previous files and folders will be gone.

Hey, i've had the same problem. Did you try patching the aero theme? Cos i did the same and it corrupted! One thing you can try now is that you can copy this theme from any of your friends' PC which is running Vista Ultimate and copy it in yours'. You shd paste the file under "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes" (shd have Admin rights to do this). Then apply the theme as usual.
But if the above doesn't work and you are desperate in need of the Aero theme, then no other way other that re-installing the OS.

Hope this help. If so, rate me.. thanks - billa

Your video card may not be supported for the use of Aero, do a windows vista compatibility check.

Bad resolution and aero glass theme not working


Sounds like you have Intel Ingregrated Video with less than 1 GB system ram.

The answer is the system does not have the hardware to Run Vist Aero Mode, and apparently has minimal ability to run Vista at all.

You may be able to get a better video driver than the default at Support.dell.com.

More than likely, you are looking at putting Windows XP back on the system
