Yeah, so I'm trying to install my video card driver update from acer website. I uninstall, then windows installs its own again. It is making me angry... :( Anyone know how to disable that function, remove the windows drivers, or another solution?

Easy fix. Acer does not make video cards. Get the OEM drivers from the manufacturer. If it's a GeForce card, go to Nvidia.com. If its ATI, go to ATI.com.

Bottom line: PC manufacturers use the drivers provided by them from the chipset manufacturers. Problem is, those drivers are 2 to 3 versions old.

This is a 7600 Go. nVidia specifically requests you download from the laptops manufactures website. Anyway, I finally got it to install after a long process and combination of uninstalling drivers, using driver cleaner I wanted it to install drivers for me. No thanks. lol


But yet, my white screen is all blue, and my black is all red... anyone know whats going on? X_X
