I've just upgraded from Win XP Pro SP2 to Win 7 Pro 32-bit and every time when I tries to play pre-installed games for example I get an error message saying 'Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow game performance. Make sure you have the latest video car installed...' or even Media Center...

I also tried nvidia and it says that 'could not found any hardware that can support...'.
Please help!
Thanks!

If you're using a laptop you need to get your display drivers from the manufacturer's website.

Upgrade from XP to 7 is not possible, so I assume, it was clean Windows 7 installation?
Did you check, if your computer is Win 7 compatible?
What is the brand and model of your computer?
Do you have any errors in Device Manager?

You're not saying what Acer model.
You're not saying, if you checked for Win 7 compatibility before going that way.

instead showed Standard VGA Graphic Adepter

It means, Windows installed generic driver.
You need a real driver.
First place to look would be Acer site.
