Hello everone!
I have a weird problem.

One of my Acer VX 15 (i have 2 of them, identical ones) has the problem, that it wont open most games or programms any more.
I tried reinstalling windows. No Fix.

The only thing that works is to uninstall the Nvidia Drivers with DDU (Display Driver Uninsntaller) and use the drivers provided by windows update (they are some 3xx.xx from 2016).

What is happening with anything than the Windows "Stock" Drivers: 
Games open, but the screen stays either white or black. I can hear the sound. But i can't see nothing.

Any suggestions?

The weird thing is: 
My other VX 15 works just fine.

Hardware:
VX15
GTX 1050
16GB 
i5 7300HQ
128GB SSD (Stock)
1TB HDD (Stock) has 720 reallocated sectors though. But the problems also appear if I only use the ssd.

Thanks so much in advance! Im out of ideas!

    I installed the newest Laptop drivers using the NVIDIA Site. (1050 laptop)
    I also tried updating directly via Geforce Experience.

    I also have this issue.  I have the same laptop as the original poster.  My windows version is not compatible with the nvidia link you posted.  Do you have an updated link for the current windows version, or where could I find one?

    Thank you in advance.

    updated drivers!
    b) then, disable wireless and then uninstall and delete the intel and nvidia drivers through the device manager:

    c) then restart windows and install the latest drivers.

    The intel driver is not compatible with my laptop.  I have an i7 unlike the original poster.  I tried what you said to do with just the nvidia driver and it still does not work.  The nvidia driver was compatible, but did not resolve the issue.

    Thank you for your help so far and I hope you can find a solution for me!

    Hello @egydiocoelho

    I also have the i7 configuration and :

    1) After restart, the drivers are coming back automaticly .

    2) igxpin.exe wont install because the driver is inapropriate.

    When you say "b) then, disable wireless" what do yo mean ?

    Hope that you are still here

  • When you say "b) then, disable wireless" what do yo mean ?

    You must press the fn+f3 keys to disable the wireless network card, so that windows update does not automatically re-install the drivers.
