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.

I have sis 661fx Motherboard with intel 3.06 GHz processor with 1gb Ram.I have installed Win 7 last month.The Aero feature is not working on my system.i tried to update the drivers but wen i troubleshoot...


Did you run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor before you installed Win 7. You may find that windows 7 doesn't allow the use of your graphics hardware. With the issue of Win 7, Microsoft decided that they would only allow the use of hardware that had been tested by themselves. To enforce this all drivers for Win 7 onwards require "Signed Drivers" to operate properly. You may need to buy a Win 7 ready graphics card to continue with a stable computer.

Tip

"Aero features are'nt running in window's 7"


Solution: Check that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements for running Aero:



1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor


1 gigabyte (GB) of random access memory (RAM)


128-megabyte (MB) graphics card


Aero also requires a DirectX 9 class graphics processor that supports a Windows Display Driver Model Driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel.

For best results, you might also want to follow these graphics processor recommendations:



64 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution that is less than 1,310,720 pixels (for example, a 17–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has a 1280 × 1024 resolution)


128 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 21.1–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 1600 × 1200 resolution)


256 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution greater than 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 30–inch wide-screen flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 2560 × 1600 resolution)


To turn on window frame transparency, the color scheme must first be set to Windows Aero.

1.Open Personalization by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.


2.Click Window Color and Appearance.


3.Select the Enable transparency check box.

To change the color scheme to Windows Aero

1.Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Window Color and Appearance. If the Appearance Settings dialog box is not displayed, at the bottom of the page, click Open classic appearance properties.


2.In the Color scheme list, click Windows Aero, and then click OK.

Check that your theme is an aero theme and not a normal theme. Themes are available in normal and aero and can be confusing. Set your theme as an aero theme and you should get the aero window working.

These steps will help us to have AERO running.

Thank's and Regard's:

Can I add a graphics card to my Acer Aspire 3610 so that I can run Windows 7 with Aero?


Unfortunately no... in the interest of keeping laptops and notebooks slim, the graphics card is integrated into the mainboard and not removable or upgradeble. You can still enjoy most of the features of Windows 7, but depending on the graphics card, may not be able to experience all the features of Aero. You will need to upgrade to a laptop with a graphics card that meets the criteria for AERO or simply continue to use your current system. It depends on your preference, however in my opinion, while Aero is nice, its not worth getting a new laptop for. You aren't missing much except eye-candy.

Hope this answers your question.

Can i upgrade the video card intel 915 gm in my asus eee pc 904hd with 10 inch screen to suport the aero theme in windows vista


Hi,

There is already a reply for this :-

Intel will support the Windows Vista Aero desktop theme beginning with the Intel 945G/GM Express chipset and Intel 965 Express chipset families, as well as with future desktop and mobile chipsets.

Hope that would answer your solution.

Upgrade and get it fixed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have installed Windows Vista Ultimate on my PC. Now the Aero theme is not working and the same is missing. Please help.


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
