Question, the found new hardware wizard. Word for word, what type of hardware does it say its finding each and every time the PC starts?
Question. would you mind if i connected and had a look? My knowledge is more efficiently applied in person~
That model of acer shipped with a ATI Radeon™ X1200 originally.. It was probably removed to install the Nvidia.. Most likely, the radeon display drivers weren't removed.. So that may be why it keeps thinking its found new hardware..
Also, the bios needs to be updated , and that needed to happen before the graphics card was installed. Then.. After the graphic card is installed and the correct drive fully installed.
at this point, it would probably be best to remove the card.. reinstall the card ( physically )
Then, reinstall the correct and newest nvidia display driver from here. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
Then, install the bios update from here. http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/474;-;Veriton%20M410
Also, even if you fix the found new hardware issue for the graphics card, if that's the culprit.. You'll still need to download and install the drivers for the other "broken" or " found"new hardware from the acer site.. Or disable those broken devices altogether..

Assuming the card is a pci express 16 card.. which it should be or it wouldnt fit.
Yes, its compatible.. And I believe the found hardware wizard is being triggered from a combination of, the card may not be properly installed, the bios needs updating, and maybe the previous video cards drivers werent disabled or removed. And with you mentioning three devices popping up, wed have to disable or remove the drivers for the other three devices to get that message to stop showing~
Im more of a fan of reinstalling the software and getting the devices working myself. My thoughts on what devices may be failing.
The SD card readers tend to fail and need to be uninstalled from device manager then reinstalled from the acer download site.
I know the old card they probably just removed and didnt uninstall the drivers.. So you have two sets of display drivers now, radeon and nvidia.. Most people forget to remove the old drivers for the machine keeps looking for a card that isnt there.
The card itself should work. But thats assuming theres no hardware issues with the motherboard. ( Which is unlikely, but possible )
