Have you tried setting it to 16bit, then oking it....then set it back to 32bit (ok) and see if there is a higher resolution?

In the run field, type msinfo32, under software environment, see if you see the acer driver, then go to the location of the driver, and remove it. Another possible solution:
  • Right click on desktop
  • select Personalize
  • Click change display settings
  • Highlight the monitor that is named incorrectly
  • Click advance settings
  • Click the monitor button
  • Click Properties
  • Click driver
  • Click driver details
there you will see the driver being used, you can either go to the location of the driver and remove it, or click the uninstall button to remove the driver, or simply click the udate driver, and have it install the driver from the disk. Hope this helps.

I helped a friend out that had a similar issue. It was the latest drivers that were causing the problem. He switched back to the older version and it fixed it. The only way that we could get it to work properly with the latest drivers was to turn off SLI in the Nvidia control panel.

I think the best thing to do is remove the nvidia drivers completely from your system and then start again.
Once you have uninstalled the drivers use a program like Guru3D - Driver Sweeper just to make sure that all trace of the drivers are gone. Restart the computer then re-install the nvidia drivers.
