Thanks for the assist,but when I open the setup file,it shows "Installing Driver:Intel HD Graphics Family" for a while then an error message appears saying "The setup program failed to install one or more device drivers. Setup will exit." ,any suggestions as to what I do from here?

Did you Install the Chipset Driver from the Acer Website ? Also you have just done a fresh Install where you able to run Windows Updates .. The Driver for your GPU should have worked one thing i have noticed though is it was mostly made for 64 Bit OS .. Try Installing the Chipset Driver first .. While you are doing that i will contunie my search for another Driver ...
