Did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?

 

If you haven't, you should.

Unfortunately the Aspire 3000 has the very mediocre SiS Mirage video which cannot support Aero and is really only suitable for the older OS like XP

I can't say for sure if this will work. Create a Restore Point first and also create a bootable Windows System Repair Disk if you do not have the Windows 7 install disk.

 

Click on the hard drive icon here and provide a junk email address. The driver is from ECS.

 

I don't think you can get any upgrades for that computer as it's a laptop and because of it's age.

Try turning off "Aero" I have it turned off off on all my machines and laptops, it is pretty but also pretty useless just eye candy!
