I have a 4 months old PC with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
- Windows Experience Index is 5.4.
- Intel i5 processor
- 6GB memory
- nVidia GT220 video card.
During games, Windows reported shortage of system resources, so switched the desktop back to "Windows 7 Basic" desktop theme. After game-over, I could switch back to the normal theme and enjoy all Aero eye-candies. However, lately the glass-like window transparency feature got disabled, and I found no ways to enable it again.
There is a Troubleshouting option in Control Panel saying: "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects". If I launch that, it does not find anything.
Event viewer is full with the following warnings:
The Desktop Window Manager is experiencing heavy resource contention. Scenario : The Desktop Window Manager responsiveness has degraded.
Taskbar, window borders, etc, none of the other transparent features work, and I cannot turn them on. Any thoughts?
