I have an R51 on which I have recently installed Windows 7. Features in Windows 7 such as being able to hover over an Icon of an open application and seeing the "thumbnails" of the open sessions within the app. don't display.

When I run "Performance Information & Tools" from Control Panel, I get:
The Windows Eperienc Index for your system could not be computed.
Cannot complete the requested assessment. This system does not have the necessary multi-media support to run the requested assessment.



When I try to open a game I get the following warning:
Harware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow your games performance. Make sure you have the latest video card driver installed, and that hardware acceleration is turned on.
