Windows 7 Aero. Is it on the Driver?

Please correct me if this post is not on the right thread or category.

I just installed Windows 7 in my PC, the problem I encountered is with Windows 7 Aero. I downloaded and installed drivers in my MSI K9N6PGM2-V Motherboard compatible for Win 7.

Everytime I logged in and the Windows had started, the Windows Aero is not working. I still need to open a game (i.e. Plant vs. Zombies) and then after closing the app, the taskbar became transparent (means the Aero suddenly worked).

This is not a very big issue, but I still want to fix it. Is it on the driver that I installed?

I also think about it, that NVIDIA is not starting in Windows startup, but I'm still not so sure about it. Still need more research.

Any help or workarounds?

Thanks.

Are you using the onboard 6100 GPU?

Which driver version number? Bearing in mind that's a really weak GPU anyway.

Go to the Nvidia website and download then install the latest driver, 260.99.

just installed the latest driver a while ago, but still nothing changed.

I read a lot of forums, they said GeForce 6150SE s*cks.

btw, I ran Windows Experience but it didn't finish there are some errors says:
"cannot measure video playback performance."

Had to check it out.

I did say that it was a weak GPU, looks like you might have to invest in a discrete graphic card.
