'Aero' on Sony Vaio VGC-V3S

    I recently purchased Windows Vista: Home Premium Edition with the intent to
    utilize the new Aero feature. However, I am unable to do so.

    I have a:

    Sony Vaio VGC-V3S
    NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 with 128 MB of video RAM
    1GB RAM

    Another thing is, that even with a supposedly compatable graphics card I
    still get a base score of one on the 'Windows Experience Index'. I think that
    may have something to do with it.

    My question is: Why can't I use Aero even though my PC is supposedly
    compatable and is there any way for me to fix this?

    Thank you.
