    looks like you have a driver conflict/issue... had the same problem on an acer notebook... u need to do this... uninstall chipset driver and display driver... install chipset driver first, then install display driver... note that the order of install in important if you face this issue

    I would imagine you just need to visit Control Panel -> Programs and Features.

    Then you might have to restore to the point just before the chipset installation.

    Re-install the previous chipset driver?
    Or try a different video driver?

    Go to Device Manager to uninstall chipset drivers.
    Sometimes it will also find a conflict or other problem there when you view the device in question and can possibly fix it.
    Start -> Run -> compmgmt.msc

    Open Device Manager, then find the device you want to install.
    Right Click -> Uninstall --or--
    Right Click -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Uninstall (button)
    ctrl+shift+esc to bring up Task Manager, make sure dwm.exe (Desktop Window Manager) is running.

    Did you by chance install some UXTheme patch?
    Or install a theme over your default one without patching?

    Check also services.msc to ensure that Desktop Window Manager is set to "Automatic".

    Sounds like its time for a clean install.
