New Laptop Windows 7 Aero Help!!!

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Well, I just bought a new Dell Latitude d630, and i installed windows 7 on it, and for some reason when I set an Aero Theme on it, it doesn't do 'glass'. :( Any ideas? Google didn't help :| Also, when i type sometimes, for example, it will for example go back randomly to the middle of the paragraph and it will start typing out of nowhere. It basically will start typing where my mouse cursor is :( Thanks guys!!!

    The latter usually occurs to me on a laptop when I accidentally press the trackpad whilst typing. I recommend turning off (if possible) being able to click by tapping the trackpad and only the buttons. The former sounds like that you have a power plan set that disables aero when running on battery power, this is usually default.

    To add literally today How-to-Geek posted a topic on avoiding the very problem of moving the mouse while typing. There are several freeware programs to solve this while not having to turn your trackpad on and off each time. Have a look

    We're talking about Windows 7 here. I'm wondering why YOU suddenly bring up Vista for no reason.

    My laptop has Vista Basic, and you can't set a "glass" theme on that like you can with Vista Pro or Ultimate. Maybe yours is the same with Windows 7?

    @ Brainz I assume his laptop came with Vista as it's newer and it doesn't already have 7, although it could've had xp..
