Exclamation Windows Aero + Movie Maker + DVD Maker

I have an HP Slimline PC and I just upgraded to vista home premium. I meet the graphics requirements (128 mb) but I cannot run aero, movie maker or dvd maker. I have an intel 910gl chipset and I have one pci slot, i have the newest drivers. Unfourtunatley I need a half height, low profile PCI crad, so this is hard for upgrading to a new graphics card. I have 1 gb of ram, vista home premium, celeron 1.50 ghz processer and a dvd drive. I need to use movie maker for a project for school but I get an error about hardware acceleration and video card requirements. My hardware acceleration is at full and i have searched online and called everyone but I do not know what to do. I also have no option to turn on aero, which was a major feature to the salesman who sold it to me.

You shouldn't have upgraded to Vista. Your computer barely meets the requirements, and the onboard GPU isn't supported by Windows Aero. I'd suggest to revert back to XP.
