  1. You were right. Strange but one guy had Basic also as me, but he had Aero. I think DELL removed it from their version of Vista. Anyway i installed Vista Ultimate, and now i have Aero fully working. Thank you all for your help.
  2. Any idea how i can force aero in vista home? I have "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 (Up to 256MB shared)" (965 chipset) accelerator on mine Dell Latitude D630 laptop. 2gigs of ram. Mine windows are not transperent, how i can force them to be??? I have made these changes to registry with no help. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DWM] "EnableMachineCheck"=dword:00000000 "Animations"=dword:00000001 "Blur"=dword:00000001 "Composition"=dword:00000001 "CompositionPolicy"=dword:00000002 "UseAlternateButtons"=dword:00000000 "Glass"=dword:00000001 "Metal"=dword:00000000 "ForceSoftwareD3D"=dword:00000000 "DebugMessages"=dword:00000000 "DebugZOrder"=dword:00000000 "DebugMouse"=dword:00000000 "DebugDumpTree"=dword:00000000 Any idea?
  3. "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop" - This effect doesnt work in my windows. Active desktop seems to be disabled. I saw in "regedit" ForceActiveDesktopOn - 1, i deleted it, and added NoActiveDesktop - 1. That didnt help. Strange that this value "ForceActiveDesktop" is by default even when i add new user. Strange, but how this can be done? This windows seems to be modified by "Acer", and i wanna know how they did that, and modify it back Please help me. Best Regards, Shadow_Fi.
  4. I have Acer laptop (7003) and have no shadowing effect in Windows, even if i enable it. (right click on my computer, properties and so on..). Maybe Acer deleted this function from this Windows.. Please help me!
  5. There is no support for nForce 2 based mother boards, and no support for Geforce 2-4 on Vista. But, old WinXP drivers work just fine! I use 1024mb of DD400 and nForce 2 based motherboard, AMD Athlon 2400+, and GeForce 4 Ti 4200, and I am using Vista just fine. I runs fast enough and no bugs with WinXP drivers so far.. When you install drivers, make Setup.exe run as WinXP SP2. You can find that if you click it with the right button on mouse, go in properties, and somewhere there will be that option.. "Hope you understood what im talking about".
  6. Which NVidia PCI-E 3d card is best and under 100 euros? Maybe something like ASUS GeForce 7300 GT 256 Mt PCI-E -- 84 € ?
  7. I need 939 slot motherboard. Which is cheap / good for overclocking / (has AGP ?). I allways used MSI motherboards, and i like them, they are cheap, and allways good overclocking (no hardcore overclocking used ). So any ideas? Best regards, Shadow_Fi.
  8. I have some MSI nForse 2, motherboard, with 1024 DDR 400mhz memory. 2 Hdd's, 80 + 300, both seagates. Have strange problem, when i turn my PC ON i have to wait few seconds (3-5s) then push reset, only then my computer will turn on. If i just push Turn On button, i have black screen, and some times my motherboard beeps strangely. My CPU is little bit overclocked, but it works just fine using reset button. Reseting bios didnt help i think. I just think, maybe someone had same problem? Im using my pc for a maybe year like this =))
  9. No, im running Windows XP. Ok, so what i should do then? There is no way to run any 3d old game? (Like half life 1). Can someone tell me wich is the latest and good perfomance forceware for GeForce 2 Pro?
  10. My wife has an Asus P5a motherboard, (512 SDRAM, 40gb HDD) and it isnt working with GeForce 2 Pro right (bsod, or 0-2fps in half-life 1). It works in windows normally only if i use very old detonators for Nvidia. Some guy said that Asus P5a isnt working right with GeForce 2 Pro, that coz voltage. I think thats stupid.. I dont really belive that. Anyone have any idea? Maybe some links on latest drivers on motherboard, or latest Bios? Maybe some perfomace tips? Anything! All the best, Shadow_Fi.
  11. I need help! I f*cked up my Kingstone USB Stick - 512mb. I cannot format it, cant, zerofill with Killdisk.. Windows anyways does see it.. But when you double click it, it says - Please insert Disc. When you push, format, nothing happens.. Seems to be bad error, or maybe physically it is broken.. dunno.. Maybe someone can help me out??
  12. Great Well how far is your project right now? I can be you beta tester
  13. So, as i understood, no one will even try to make uxtheme.dll for Win2000? Anyways, can you Gurgelmeyer, think about how to make all Win2000 icons look antialiased? Then, it would be pretty fun if with your pack would install shell32.dll with WinXP icons, or something like that. Then would be cool, if some one would make small util, that would came with your pack.. I mean something like TuneXP, coz there is very handy option, " ultra fast booting ". Would be cool to have this function in Windows. Just ideas
