Your Intel D915GLVG has a integrated PCIExpress built into the board. Your system memory is shared with the built in video card. This board's memory can handel up to 4GB of system memory which up to 512MB can be shared from your system memory. If you wanted to disable the integrated 915GL Express Chipset with Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 900. You would be left with two PCI slots. Running a PCI video card is slower than a AGP card & two notches down from a PCIExpress card.
So in order for you to acheave what you want your going to have to increase your system memory. If you still have your manual the specifactions for your memory is on Pg. 9.
The link below is a list of supported memory from Intel.
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d915glvg/sb/CS-027048.htm
If you no longer have your manual you download it from this link:
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d915glvg/sb/c996091_en.pdf
Though you can check aound. I can suggest this mamory which will give you 2GB dual matched memory that is within your boards specifications. Listed at this link. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1075233&CatId=1352
You will still have two memory slots free to upgrade to a total of 4Gb at a later date. So please do not disable your current video card. Please use your manual when installing memory. Two Dimms go into certain slots on the D915GLVG board.
Enjoy!
please vote....

You can try for Nvidia 128/256 on PCI slot of the same. The cost will depend on the memory chosen for the card. The better the memory, the better will be the aero theme.

The newest driver available for your graphics card is designed for Windows Vista, but it should work with Windows 7. That does not necessarily mean that it will. I have included a link to download the driver below.

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,

Intel 845 display driver for windows vista


The intel 845GV graphics driver is not available for Windows Vista. Try installing one of the drivers from the following link for XP professional. This is the latest version of the driver. If this does not work properly, you may have to purchase a pci video card to use in your system.

What graphics card does your laptop have? It needs a dx9 one for the aero effects to work.
