display driver crashed several times

i have a problem with my display driver. once in a while the screen resolution wont go higher than 1024x768. at first i can repair it by simply reinstalling the chipset. then it happened again but this time i have to reinstall the nvidia vga driver. now i cant fix it even when i reinstall the vga driver. im using acer aspire 4520. i checked the drivers that i installed n both the chipset n vga are the latest one. help plz

new drivers are working fine for me, im using 64 bit not 32, but i would imagine its basically the same release i would recommend SCANNING your pc for the latest drivers from Nvidia, chipset first, then Graphics card (use Internet Explorer as the chipset scanner doesnt work for other browsers) http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk click Motherboard under the "Automatically find my drivers" then do the same for graphics card, beyond this im out of ideas, sorry

remember to install Chipset, then graphics (chipset display driver will be older than the graphics one)

your laptop uses 7000M/630M so make sure you get these drivers

At a guess, i would say that if you have installed the drivers from Acer rather than Nvidia, a quick look round their site, shows me they are still using Vista drivers, the Nvidia ones are for Windows 7
