    Most likely, yes

    Do the following:
    create a system restore point

    download & install Driver Sweeper
    http://www.guru3d.com/content_page/guru3d_driver_sweeper.html

    Download the latest video driver from Acer's support / download site for your computer

    create another restore point

    control panel > programs & features
    Uninstall ONLY the nVidia graphics driver
    other drivers may be offered. Do NOT uninstall any other drivers

    Decline reboot

    create another restore point

    Shut down

    Upon reboot, begin tapping the F8 key once a second until the boot menu appears
    using the up / down arrow keys, highlight / select "safe mode"
    press "enter"

    log in

    run driver sweeper

    install the video / graphics drivers

    boot to normal mode.

    test

    Windows Debugger suggests that the problem is the nVida video / graphics driver.

    I recently had a similar problem with 1 of my computers. I performed the steps described in #17. I downloaded the latest driver.

    The problem persisted, so I downloaded the next younger driver; for example oldest would be Dec 2012; next younger would be Aug [ or any month earlier ] than Dec 2012.

    Congratulations.

    For me, W7 does not automatically install the drivers.

    But for you, I am glad that your system is working well.
