    So I just upgraded from Vista basic to Ultimate but after all the installation and what not I noticed that I don't have the Aero theme? The only one I got is the "Windows Vista Basic" and some other older ones but no Aero? :(

    Any way to download it?

    First thing, Aero requires a fully compatible DirectX 9 video card..

    Basically, yes. Any card that supports DirectX 9.

    I'm guessing you are running on integrated graphics with video memory that small. What are the specs of your full system, might be too outdated.

    after you upgrade your card, areo should just start up as it would on a computer that has a card of at least 128 meg.
