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.
