Ok. This is my first post here and I'm in dire need of help. I have an Acer Aspire 8930g laptop that for that past year or so was just sitting on a shelf due to what I thought was a bad video card. Well I finally laid down the $100 on ebay for a used one. It was listed as tested and working. Well I put it in my laptop and booted it up and it was with great delight that I saw my bios screen. I was super excited. I did a fresh install of win7 64bit edition and everything was working great. I got all my drivers from acer.com for the 64bit edition of windows 7. However, to my dismay, when i loaded the drivers for the NVIDIA geforce 9600m GT that i bought then restarted, I was greated with a weird colored patchwork all over the screen. I was able to log in though. Even worse, when i take a window and drag it, I get this weird static all over that window. I tried looking for an updated driver and installed that from nvidia.com and was happy when i restarted to see that the patchwork was gone. However, when i drag a window, watch a movie, or play a game, I still see this static. Everything will work if i disable or uninstall the drivers. I'm just unable to get the resolution or acceleration I need without the drivers. I have tried multiple drivers, OSs, BIOSes, and even underclocking the GPU, to no avail. Does anyone have any advice? Specs below.
