I don't think you formatted your computer's girlfriend, but your girlfriends computer!

And, technically speaking you don't format a computer, you format a partition on a disk. So let's assume you reinstalled the OS doing a format. Which OS? Possible candidates are Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or any Linux flavor.

If you install the original OS (the OS that came with the computer) - another thing you forgot to tell) - you best use the original driver. That could be on something like a 'driver and utility' disk or an integral part of the system recovery. But you also didn't tell what source you used to do the reinstall.

So with the information given, all I can say is: keep searching!

Sorry Kees!!
My OS is not an original, and I know that it's not good but I've not the original CD and I don't want to pay the license!! I search it but every drivers that I tried don't work!! I installed XP Pro Utimate Edition! I've every drivers for the audio, modem, etc.. but not the video!!
On the website ACER, there is a video driver for the series 3050 but it doesn't work!!
For the video board reference, I'll give her this night or tomorrow!

"I don't want to pay the license!!".

XP Pro Ultimate is a hacked version. And that's the reason, even if your problem would be the same with any version of XP.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
