i have recently bought a new Acer 5745G core i5, Nvidia GEFORCE 330M CUDA 1GB.
the problem is that i cannot upgrade the drivers to its latest version 285.xxx, the drivers from the Acers website are 188.xxx, these are not even available on the acer website.
When i try too install the latest drivers i just get the option to install the HD audio drivers, it doesn't detect my Graphics card at all.
i have googled about it and found out that it is some OEM issue between Acer and Nvidia ...
is there any way by which i can solve this problem???

I am having the same problem. I updated my driver for my graphics card on my 5745pg with Geforce 330m and it froze within minutes and the driver and hardware could not be detected after that. Now I can't install drivers for it because the computer doesn't see it. I tried booting in discrete mode, but it just comes up black because I dont have the back up "Standard VGA Driver" either. It was showing error and now it is gone from device manager. Any other ideas?

Hi :) 

Certain laptops just will NOT take the drivers from Nvidias site....you MUST use the graphics drivers from the Manufacturers site ONLY...

All the best Brett :)
