Not having Aero has nothing to do with the graphics card, it depends on the version of Windows 7 that is installed on your computer. Two versions of Windows 7 - Starter and Home Basic - do not come with the Aero theme.
Granted, the reason that these versions do not come with Aero is because Aero does need a decent laptop with decent graphics, so are usually found on netbooks and lower-cost/older machines. But you could install Windows Starter on a top-of-the-line PC and you still would not be able to get Aero.
As far as I know there is no way to edit the theme within the Windows installation as it is. You can get third-party tools that say they can do it but I have never really trusted that type of thing, perfect hiding place for malware.

Really? Man, never heard about a PC able to run higher than Home Basic that cannot run Aero! The specs for all PCs I've seen that come with Home Premium far exceed what's needed.
What are the specs of your PC?
Laptops and desktops use different types of disc drives so this wouldn't have worked.
