Windows 7: resolution problem after installation of windows 7

Problem of the resolution is solved! And the colors are back to normal!
All i did was remove the video card and clean it a little bit and put it back in. And it worked.

And even with the newest driver of the Nvidia site windows 7 worked super. But after 3 times of restart it didn't startup anymore and I got a white screen.

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'm going to try the driver from the acer website.
I'll get back to you.

I tried to instal the driver from the acer site but i didn't work.
I got a blue screen and an error nvlddmkm.sys.

Does anyone know a fix for this?

wouter did you use either drive sweeper or ccleaner to uninstall the old driver before you reinstalled ? the driver files may be trying to access an older version of nvlddmkm.sys on your PC

Humm...So thing going forward slowly but surely around there!

Pebbly is right, the older driver taking over the fresh one:

In case you cannot get rid of this one with a Ccleaner..you might look at this folder, and delete manually.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys

I tried ccleaner and driversweeper but both of them didn't help.
When I searched my system for the file nvlddmkm.sys I found 6 files in driverstore filerepository and some maps in there. And I've read somewhere if i rename them to .old and installed the driver again it should work normaly everywhere. But now it gives an error during installation and it says i need an interactive computer.

So that didn't work.
I really don't know it anymore.

Humm...I guess you'll have to go in the registry (see the path on attached thumbnail)

Start Menu=>Run + (type) regedit (open command prompt)

Then locate the Key "nvlddmkm" and delete it. Then reinstall your Acer Nvidia driver
