You have to use the Acer recovery programme for that. Acer e-recovery and when open you have choices. you want to choose to install a driver. So when you start Acer E-recovery, choose "Restore" and you should now see a window like below...

choose "reinstall drivers and applications!" Or similar

Now re-install the Graphics adapter/video card driver

I'm sure you will choose the right 1.

Then you may have to re-boot.

Restart , sign in and that should fix it.

Windows update has a habit of trying to update drivers for graphics on computers and laptops e.c.t. Try changing the windows update setting so that windows tells you when there is updates available but you you choose what to update. The graphics is usually in the optional update tab............untick it.

Hope this helps
