No video driver works, on acer aspire get stop error 119

I am having massive issues with a acer aspire.  I thought it was just a problem with the video driver, however I tried many things which I won't list here, finally I reformatted and reinstalled windows.  It worked at first until I went to acer and downloaded the video driver for the machine then it instantly went to blue screen with stop error 119.  I tried to uninstall but no good.  I reformatted again and it worked with the generic driver.  Does this indicate that the on board video card is bad?  I have had something similar before with a desktop and no driver would work because the card was bad and the advanced functions the driver enabled crashed the system, could this be the case here?  Also this system was purchased less than 6 months ago.

what kind of acer aspire? model?  Is this a x64 or 32 bit OS??  Made sure the driver was a 64 or 32 bit driver that matched the OS?  Have you tried an actual vga or dvi video card yet?

Just trying to rule the obvious out first....

I am thinking this is either a defective onboard video or a driver issue...

it is a x64 windows 7 and it is the right driver for the model and the 64 bit os and it is a laptop I have no way I know of to put another video card in it.

Yes that is what I thought too.   I will tell my friend his options.    I was hoping I was wrong I am fixing it for a friend who moved to medico he is up visiting.  I hope the computer survives
being shipped back down there.
