Windows 7: Issues with Display Driver in Windows 7

Windows 7, 32 Bit
Issues with Display Driver in Windows 7


I formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows 7. I installed all the necessary Drivers. When I open any game (for example, Spider Solitaire) I get a popup stating graphics accelerator is not enabled or the device driver is not updated. TO resolve this I updated my Display Driver. After this windows does not shut down completely. Also, when browsing(both Chrome and IE 11), the page crashes. When I uninstall the driver update, windows shuts down fine and I dont see any page crashes in browser, but I am unable to play games and unable to watch videos (they dont play at all, sometimes I see a lag).

I have tried updating the driver automatically under Deice Manager and also through Windows Update. Both has the same results. Below are my hardware/software details.
Laptop Make - Acer Aspire 5755
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Display - Intel(R) HD Graphics family
