How do I get the Aero desktop experience? The following editions of Windows 7 include Aero:
  • Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
Aero is not included in Windows 7 Home Basic or Windows 7 Starter. You can find out which edition of Windows 7 you have on your computer by opening System in Control Panel.

The edition of Windows 7 you're running is displayed under Windows edition near the top of the window.
You also need to use a Windows theme to display Aero graphics. If you are using an Ease of Access theme, some elements such as transparency and thumbnail previews will not appear. To view which theme you are using, open Personalization in Control Panel.

The theme currently in use is highlighted.

A stop error occurs when Windows XP Professional stops responding. Stop error messages can be caused by hardware or software malfunctions. The error messages appear on a blue or black background. The following steps, which also appear on the stop error screen, help you find out the cause of a stop error and how to fix the problem. To troubleshoot General Stop Errors: 1. Restart your PC. Unplug each new hardware device, one at a time, to see if this resolves the error. Try to run any hardware diagnostic software supplied by your computer manufacturer. 2. If this is a new installation of hardware or software, contact the manufacturer for any Windows XP Professional updates or drivers you might need. Click Get support, or find information in Windows XP newsgroups (under "Ask for assistance") and then click Get help from Microsoft in the left-hand column. 3. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to verify that all your hardware and drivers are compatible with Windows XP Professional. 4. If you can start Windows XP Professional, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help identify the device or driver causing the problem. 5. If you cant start Windows XP Professional, try to start your computer in safe mode, and then remove or disable any newly added programs or drivers. 6. Search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for "Windows XP Professional" and the number associated with the stop error you received. Specific Stop Errors Some stop errors display descriptive messages such as "DATA_BUS_ERROR" that can help you determine the exact solution for the error. This section discusses how to troubleshoot specific stop errors, based on the type of error you receive.

Hi, have you installed any new hardware, software, updates or drivers before this happened? If so, go to safe mode ( press F8 while win bootup ) and remove the application. If this has totay nothing to do with installed software, it may be your RAM module failing... try to replace with a different one to get rid of the problem.

Microsoft... | Answered on Oct 10, 2014

No. XP already does this (simulating RAM on disk) with the swap file. You can override the system settings for swap file size but usually auto is okay. In any case, disks are horribly slow compared to RAM so you're far better off putting more physical RAM in. You'll see a very noticeable increase in speed if your system is currently swapping out a lot.

Check connections, make sure power connections are correct, make sure drivers are installed correctly. It might be a bad drive or it may not be communicating correctly.

Programs occasionally freeze-up and become unresponsive because an error takes place that can't be handled. Unfortunately, the only solution is usually just to close the window, which means losing your game session.

Click the X button on the top right-hand side of the window to close the window. If it does not close on its own, you'll need to restart your computer. Click the Start button, then click on Restart. Once your computer is back up and running, try playing your game again.

This error occurs due to the following reasons: Faulty RAM, registry errors, incompatible drivers, hardware failures, faulty BIOS configuration, Viruses.
Follow the steps below to avoid the BSOD error message occurs again.
Check whether the RAM installed in your computer complies with the motherboard specs. Replace the RAM if needed. You can also check the systems with a friend's RAM to know whether the error message is due to RAM.
Use a free registry cleaner/fixer software available to clean/repair your windows registry. (Ccleaner is good at this)
Do not install incompatible device drivers. Install only Microsoft Signed drivers. Update your existing driver software from the corresponding device manufacturer's website.
If you have installed/changed new hardware, check whether it is supported by your system. Also check whether it is installed properly. If needed test the systems without the faulty hardware. Check whether you've installed correct/signed driver software for that particular hardware.
If you have reconfigured your system BIOS, set it to default/optimal/recommended settings and test the system. Disable features like BIOS caching.
Use an original and up to date antivirus system like Norton, McAfee or Kaspersky and run a full systems scan.
Keep your windows updated with current patches and fixes to protect the systems from unwanted troubles.
All the best.
