Windows 7: Black screen after Nvidia onboard chipset update

The drivers are still messing around. I'm gonna have a further tinker with them later.

Layback, I should've been a little more specific.. I've been trying to boot Windows 7 Installation ISO (from USB and DVD) and Acer eRecovery backup disks. I've messed with the boot priorities in BIOS too.

Hi Dan ... Reading back to your first post this is more than a GPU problem ... You have tried the settings in the Bios to no avail ... You can download an ISO from the link below ... For a clean Install all instructions are included .. I am at a loss as to why your Recovery Discs did not work though

Does messing with boot priorities me you have set your DVD as first boot when trying to boot from a DVD?
Also do you have any other drives hooked up.
For some reason the bios is seeing the drive with Windows 7 as your first boot. I'm not familiar with your bios but in mine I have two places to change the order of booting.

Layback, that's exactly what I meant, and as far as I can see... there is only one place to change the boot priorities in my BIOS. I don't have any other drives hooked up. I take any USB storage out, and I only have 1 local drive.

Maxie, the ISO I downloaded was from DigitalRiverContent which I believe is an official MS download. Also, to address my other driver problem:

I uninstalled the problematic driver that I installed earlier, installed the older one from Acer and it still won't start up without my graphics card inside. Slowly becoming at a loss with this and wish I had a clue on what to do next. I'm not too bothered about not being able to boot anything (.ISO's etc) from CD/DVD/USB anymore. I just want to be able to use my computer with the intergrated graphics again.

Thanks to everybody for all your help.

Hi Dan ... I wonder was it a corrupt download ... The fact that it wont boot with the on-board Graphics ... Leaves me wondering if the on-board Graphics is dead .

I'm not sure whether the download was corrupt because the setup.exe launches fine from the desktop, and everything looks to be ok.

Could installing that driver earlier actually render the onboard graphics, dead? This is quite annoying if so.

When I install the Acer Nvidia driver, it only asks me if I would like to install the Nvidia SMU Driver and Nvidia Ethernet Driver. What is the SMU driver? I figured that the install wizard would also install something along the lines of "Nvidia GPU Driver" too? I'm still thinking my problem could lie here somewhere.

Hi Dan According to nVidia's documentation, the SMU driver is associated with the Coprocessor and should be installed. MediaShield is the storage suite and should be installed if you want to do RAID management from within Windows, from what I can tell....Can you please post me the Link from the Acer website ... So as I can have a look at there Drivers ... Will be in a better position then to tell you exactly what is needed

And also should have stated Installing the Driver from the Acer website would do no harm

Hi mate.

Here's the link to the Nvidia chipset drivers that Acer have under my PC model: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...CER&SC=EMEA_27

I'm also taking Gary's suggestion from the last page and trying out the 314.xx drivers. Again, will let you know how I get on.

Edit: Ah, I can't install the 314.xx drivers from the .exe as it needs to be able to detect Nvidia hardware. No idea how to go about installing this driver with my current card in.
