Windows 7 Aero Compatibility

Hey, im new here on the forums.
I joined in hope of someone answering my one question

I have recently downloaded the Windows 7 RC, mainly for the areo visuals etc.
BUT i cannot seem to enable them.
I have tried all the hacks out there on the internet and cannot seem to get it to work.
I have also updated my driver etc.

My PC Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+ 2.0 GHz
512mb RAM
Nvidia GeForce Mx 440 with agp8x
Windows 7

My question is, with my current hardware, is there anyway to get aero to work?
I have previously had vista and i got aero to work somehow, but i cant remember. lol
Thanks in advance

Also my WEI score is 1, but the score for graphics is 1.9
is there anyway to increase it?

It seems your graphics card has very low scores, so I'll bet that's the problem

You can go to Start Search files and type in fix problems, select Fix problem with transparency an visual effects.

This will bring up the Aero dialog box and allow you to perform tests to see if it's supported on your machine.
