    Can't find it via search right now:

    How is the display panel connected to the MB, what kind of connector?

    There is a new VGA driver available @ acer:
    _global-download.acer.com

    How should i proceed with update?
    Current status (since a few months ;-)):
    1) installed last official Acer driver.
    2) installed 11.2 with switching discreet

    Should i uninstall something?

    That driver is still very old. If you want it, just install over your existing installation and it should work fine. If not, then do a complete uninstall using driver sweeper and install the latest driver.

    Yes I want to try it out... maybe w7sp1 will be available now without the unofficial driver.

    I think i will uninstall the old official Acer driver then if possible the normal ati.
    After that I'll install the "new" one.

    Do you know which ati-driver-version it contains?

    Yes, it supports Windows 7 SP1. Only versions 8.15.10.2104 through 8.15.10.2141 are affected.

    is this driver customized by Acer ? maybe it solves the problem that sometime i cant switch to ATI without a restart...

    at the moment i use the newest 11.6 but i prever a stable over a fast system ;)
