There are always certain issues related to the graphics card that appear in any computer, especially those with integrated graphics cards. The Acer Veriton is not an exception.

What is a Graphics card?
A graphics card (also called a video card) installed in a computer system is a special part of the hardware assembly. It is responsible for the rendering of images on the display screen of the Acer Veriton. If you want to try out the latest computer games on your Acer Veriton and if it fails to operate, it indicates that, the graphics drivers are not compatible with the requirements of the game or the hardware and they need to be upgraded or, if the screen is blank, then it indicates that the driver is to be upgraded.
Installing a graphics driver, the Acer Veriton uses a time tested and trusted procedure. Most operating systems operate your graphics card using a default display driver with limited functionality that works for most display adapters.
However, in order to exploit your system’s full hardware potential and use advanced features like 3D graphics, a customized display driver designed for the specific display adapter must be procured and then installed. Also, since the original equipment manufacturers come out with new graphics drivers to patch bugs and improve performance, it is important that you procure the latest graphics drivers and install them.
Generally, the display adapter manufacturer does not provide any drivers for the display adapter. They are more commonly available with the manufacturer of the GPU. These drivers are almost always available on the GPU manufacturer's web site from where you can download the appropriate one. Also, if you have just bought a graphics card then it is usually not advisable to use the drivers that came bundled on the driver CD. These drivers will be outdated by the time you get your hands on the video card. You should download the latest drivers from the GPU manufacturer's web site and then install the correct drivers.
The actual installation process is generally a cakewalk and fairly simple. However, on the rare occasion when things go wrong, we would advise you to create a restore point to restore system configuration if something goes wrong.
