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
I found it but I can't delete it.

How can i delete it?

Can't you right click the key, then delete?

The key might be active...

You might have to go on Safe Mode, Restart the computer and press F8 keyboard key, enter in safe mode.

But is your graphic card still works as normal now?

This mean you have badly updated the Graphic Card previously and now it is difficult to make the original drivers trigger properly

The graphic card still works normal on the standard VGA adapter.
Is there a way trigger the right driver?

I was asking that because you said previously on post #31:

Quote:
"Problem of the resolution is solved! And the colors are back to normal!"
I wanted to make sure deleting the key have not mess it again...

The bad news:
As far my experience drove me to that issue...i had to reinstall my Os all over again, years ago on a XP Os.
