One of the main problems is when the Aero is gone and the program does not work. Aero Snap is the program that changes the settings instantly when the mouse is dragged to the corner of the screen. If the problem continues, no taskbar setting can be saved and the work can go wasted. The thumbnails not showing the preview is the second main problem. A much more complex problem is when the taskbar does not work despite the digitizer in the tablet mode. X61t is another error that may occur largely when the hardware is new and just installed. This is also applicable for the other new hardware programs too.
The Aero Snap can be resolved using the following steps. First go to start and type 'aero' in the Start search box. After that click 'Find' and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects. Then go to the wizard window and click 'Advanced option', then click 'Next'. Normally, the problem can get automatically fixed. If the problem does exist then click view detailed information and a report can be shown. The thumbnails not showing the preview is a problem that can be solved by automatically enabling Aero. If the Aero ratings are below 3 then it means that the video drivers need to be updated or the video card needs to be updated. This can be done by going to the 'Control Panel' and clicking on the 'System & Security' and set the systems again.
