    Anyone know a good windows fourm?? The question is that i have vista installed on a laptop (the one i'm working on now) The hardware don't support aero, how can i get arround this and turn it on? This laptop is Intel Celeron at 2.6 and 1.23 of ram anda intel 82852 onboard Graphics. I know this isn't a gaming laptop by a long shot but still like to put it on here

    If the aero isn't on, then there's not much you can do to enable it as it's down to the hardware.

    I know you used to be able to force it in the beta versions of Vista, but I've yet to see a way that works for the final releases.

    The Aero GUI requires, at the very least, an Intel GMA 950 graphics chip - your Intel Extreme (82852) chip isn't fast enough to run the interface.
