Windows 7: Acer Aspire 5920g and gfx probs

Acer Aspire 5920g and gfx probs

Hi guys

I'm hoping you can help me with a annoying problem....

About 4 years ago i bought this Acer Aspire 5920g with Vista as the OS..
Back then i didn't like it, so i switched to XP.. Then Win7 came and i got that on board.

Now, i'm a sucker for reinstalling the OS, when i feel my comp is getting slower and always with a good result, when installing the drivers... Until now...

Now, when i try to install my gfx driver (It's an nVidia Geforce 8600GT) it goes bananas and ends up in a 256 color 640x480 resolution.....

I've tried and tried and asked friends, but no one can help me, so i'm trying you guys now......

WTF to do? :S

Thanks in advance

What driver version are you running/trying to install? The latest are the 275.33's.

Try this: uninstall the nvidia drivers. When prompted to reboot, don't; instad, go to C: nvidia and delete the folder named display drivers. Reboot into Safe Mode and run Driver Sweeper. Put a check mark in the nvidia display driver box and then run it. Then reboot and install the current set, 275.33, then see if you can properly adjust your settings.

Download and install this ^. Don't try and run it within Windows, it won't work.... it only works in Safe Mode.
