Try this website: NVIDIA & Laptop News | Latest NVIDIA drivers and related news | laptopvideo2go.com
Back when I had a laptop with an Nvidia Chipset and Sony's Drivers pissed me off as I wanted newer drivers and features, I would download them from this site along with their modified INFs, which allow laptop chipsets to install without issue.

Let me know if this works out for you or if there are problems.

This site says that it found the driver. Set it on graphics and Windows7. Then put GT 330M into their search field. It will come back saying that it found the driver. Click the Download.
Since I do not have a need for that driver, I did not test it. Lots of luck.

Make sure to install the Intel video driver first using the one from the link theog posted. Then once that is installed try the Nvidia driver again, and again use the one from Acer (you can try the one from laptopvideo2go after if you wish, but try teh Acer one first).

From what I have been seeing with these laptops with the new Intel i3 and i5 series CPU's with the video integrated into the CPU, is that the Intel driver needs to be installed first, then the Nvidia driver (or ATI if the second video card is ATI). On these laptops the Intel graphics gets used for everyday tasks, and the Nvidia card only gets used when something is run that requires the extra power from it (games, etc).

None of previous .inf methods working so far .. but Darician thx for links just downloading one of them but is it "edited" version of drivers or should i do myself ?
Also thx Stormy13 i was just thinking to do the way you told coz there were 2 VGA drivers but i dont think that GT330 is integrated with CPU and also it's the only VGA inside laptop there is no Intel HD or GMA extra thing mine is Acer5745G Corei7 GT330M

It's edited to support the inf last I checked. I've installed them before on XP, Vista, and 7 and have had no problems with them.

Depends on which i7 you have as there is only 3 of the laptop models that don't have the integrated video,
