    I was in the midst of playing around on my computer when it decided it needed
    to switch to the Vista Basic. I restarted the computer and it was still in
    basic. So I went into display properties and I set it back to the Aero
    interface. But whether I hot OK or Apply, it stays in Basic. It will not go
    back to the Aero interface. I miss my pretty colors and 3D mode! How can I
    force it back to Aero?

    I have Vista Home Premium. I upgraded over XP Media Center 2005

    Here's my setup:
    Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2.40 GHz
    256 MB video card
    320 GB hard drive
    2 GB RAM

    Computer was purchased from Dell in December of 2006.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just checking, did you do the performance tab in control panel then adjust
    visual effects?
