I was wondering is that the fact you putted to standard VGA Graphic adapter, haven't put aswell the windows basic theme in personalize Tab. What kind of theme are you using right now?

In safemode I put the driver back to standard VGA graphic adapter and everything work like normal but the aero mode and the design stuff of windows 7 doesn't work.

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

I've reinstalled windows and installed the acer driver right away and it worked for like 5 min. Because when i restarted the computer I got the error nvlddmkm.sys.

I used an aero theme. That should work with a working driver.

try that solution:

symptom of this crash

• the screen flickering (small flashes),
• a screen that "freezes" (image)
• a screen is totally black and a return windows

indeed sometimes we fall on pseudo-solutions (incomplete, poorly explained) or solutions too complicated for most of you.
So i will explain my solution in trying to be as clear as possible.
Steps to follow - part one

• go to the nvidia file => c: \ nvidia
• find a file named "nvlddmkm.sy_" => c: \ nvidia \ displaydriver "version number of the driver (eg 186.81)" internationaldisplaynvlddmkm.sy_

note: It may well be on the path differs depending on each computer.
• copy the file to the root of c: => c: \ nvlddmkm.sy_
steps to follow - part two

• return in the file system or operating systems are stored => c: \ windows \ system32 \ drivers
• once in this folder, locate the file "nvlddmkm.sys" defective and rename it to nvlddmkm.sys.old "
steps to follow - part three

• Open CMD Prompt ms-dos => windows key + r> type "cmd"
• once Open CMD Prompt open, type the following commands:

1) "cd" and hit enter (to go straight to the root of the hard disk => c:
2) "expand.exe nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys" then hit enter
"this command allows you to unzip the file" nvlddmkm.sy_ "that you placed at the root of c: And to transform it to create the new" nvlddmkm.sys ""

• pick it => c: \ nvlddmkm.sys
• and put the folder => c: \ windows \ system32 \ drivers

it only remains for you to reboot. .
All that came from a french forums, i had to google translate and modify some wording to fit the command.
