What drivers are you trying?

If Acer has customized the device ID for the nVidia graphics device, you might best try Acer's drivers:

Did you try the Optimus drivers? You appear to have a laptop with both Intel and NVidia graphics.

First uninstall intel HD graphics which you have already install.
Then start with installing nvidia graphics driver and then install intel HD graphics.
Try in that order because it worked for me in one of my friends laptop who was getting the same error.
