What is the model number of your processor?

Your processor is from 2012.

 

The latest driver (from 2015) can be found here:

i think that using that latest driver is the problem because if im updating to it it creates that screen but using the windows basic display adapter, theres no problem i

I see from the acer support page for your laptop that only 64-bit W8.1 is supported.

Is there a reason you are running 32-bit?

 

If you can get to 64-bit, then try the intel driver on the acer page:

You are using W8.1 32-bit. Did you purchase this laptop new, and was this the OS on it when purchased?

Ok, so it was like this when you purchased it, correct?

 

Is there a Microsoft key on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop? Do not provide the key, or a photo - that would be bad. If there is a sticker, does it say W8.1 64-bit Pro on it?

Ok, but what does the sticker say (do not provide the key)?

Neither. There should be a MICROSOFT product KEY with other information.

 

It sounds to me like the repair should may have done you an injustice, by not installing what was was part of the original install.

If you do not see a Microsoft product key sticker, remove and look under the battery. If you do not find it there, that makes things more difficult.

Nope Nothing Even The Battery Itself Has No Product Key

Well, from your laptop support page, it appears you should be 64-bit.

 

When you say "like this after the repair", did the graphics work before the repair?

 

Have you tried contacting Acer for support?

I do not know that there is much I can do for you.

 

You may be experiencing hardware failure.

 

You may try force installing the 32-bit driver from here:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24970?product=67194

 

Here are the instructions on how to do so:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005629/graphics-drivers.html

 

Or, perhaps one of the Intel support engineers can assist you.

 

Or, with a laptop this old, you may want to consider new(er) hardware.
