Download the Windows Vista upgrade advisor from Microsoft which will test you components in your computer and tell you if the graphics would be able to run aero. It probably won't because when I ran it it says that you need 128mb dedicated graphics memory. Try it anyway

Hi, i tried that and it says you require a 128mb grahphics card but i saw this click here

but not greatly because your 64mb graphics card will only support up to less than 1,310,720 pixels were as the 128, 256mb will be able to support more than double.
