Hardware acceleration alt. driver issue

My wife bought an ACER AX3400 64-bit (4GB memory, GeForce 315 video card) with "empty" HDD and no drivers CD from her friend. Installed WIN7 ULTIMATE and installed all the ACER X3400 drivers available on Acer download site. When she tries to play a quite simple card game, she gets the message "Hardware acceleration is either turned off or video card driver is not installed. Either turn on the acceleration or install the driver. Id assume the driver is already installed as we installed everything on Asus driver site. How do we TURN ON the hardware acceleration so that the game wont be inendurably slow?

Hi,
Can you take and upload a picture of the back of your computer to see where your lines are connected too ?
Usually a computer with a card in it will have multiple connections for monitors and I just want to see which one your connected too
Cheers.

Is there a NVidia Experience listing there if so open it,
