Windows 7 Aero Not Working on Intel Q965


New Member
I have a Dell Optiflex 745 with an Intel Q965/Q963 Express Video Chipset on it. I did a fresh install on Windows 7 Build 7068 and Aero is not working. I enable Aero and the screen goes black until I do a restart and then all the old settings are restored. I downloaded the Vista x64 drivers for the video card, but Windows 7 keeps telling me the best drivers are already installed. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get Aero working. Thank you. :confused:
You've done what you can. That chipset might not have the performance that Windows 7 feels is capable. I took a look and it does not look like a strong integrated graphics chipset. Other question, how much RAM do you have installed?
