Well when you first turn your computer on where it counts up the memory it usually tells you what kind of video card you have. Barring that it's either an Nvidia or an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator. you can go to http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/ and punch in your notebook model number and such and then it will take you to a page with either driver. Select the Nvidia one first and it should tell you if you don't have that video card then you can do the other one. If not install the Intel driver. Once you get a driver to install and find out what kind of card you have then you need to go to www.intel.com or www.nvidia.com and get the newest driver available. I know at Nvidia you can just download one driver and it will autodetect your videocard and install the right one for you.
