I have a problem with my Acer V5-431P. When I bought the laptop, I immediately formatted the harddrive and installed a clean version of Windows 8. Aside from an incompatibility between the Atheros Wifi and Windows 8, I finally managed to install it and it runs very well.
There is only one problem: the Intel VGA driver on the Acer website does not work. The screen is very distorted, and this is due to the driver because the screen works just fine pre-boot. I'm referring to this driver listed on the Acer-website:
|VGA||Intel||VGA Driver||220.127.116.1149||152.7 MB||2012/11/13|
My problem is perfectly described by this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JOIdAK4kS4.
I found new drivers for the Intel HD graphics on the Intel website (18.104.22.16862), yet these unfortunately do not solve this problem. I hope someone at Acer is working on this problem, because I have seen many other people having this exact problem. Please help!
