Update the bios to the latest bios version. Also play around with your sata mode from ahci to ide and vice versa and there should be one that will stabalise the machine. Make sure the windows updates are up to date. As for the graphics, i would recommend that you download the lates graphics card drivers from the vendors website and not acers website. The USB 3.0 driver is also available on the acer website: http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx

I also have a similar problem i bought an aspire m5 481t two days back with windows 7 and i installed windows 8 in it at home. but it does not wake up from sleep mode when i try to do so i have to wait for long time eventhough it does not start and i have to restart it by pressing the power button for long.

what i had to do was go to the update driver page of acer timeline m5-481t page and download the
|MgmtEngine||Intel||ME (Management Engine)Driver||18.104.22.1682||47.9 MB||2012/10/18|
and restart my computer and i could close my screen and everything was back to normal updated from windows 7 to windows 8 pro
