Difficulty downloading NVIDIA driver for Acer PC

I have a Acer aspire M3910 I DL this NVIDIA driver from Acer web site

However when I unzip and extract files then try to install the setup.exe file I get this message

NDIDVIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatiable w/ you'r current hardware setup will now exit.

I'm trying to reinstall my silicon dust TV tuner so I went here
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
tryed option 2 did'nt work message said
NDIDVIA smart scan was unable to evaluate you'r sys hardware. must use option one to manualley find drivers I have no idea on my choices.



Please advice

That's not an NVidia product. Drivers or interface software needs to gotten from the TV tuner manufacturer.
You're going at it the wrong way.

NVIDIA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TV RECEIVER BOX OTHER THAN SHOWING THE IMAGE ON THE SCREEN!!!!!
There are no drivers for that device. It is a network device.

Here's the trouble shooting guide:

Here's the software you're looking for:
Downloads for the HDHomeRun

If you have the Nvidia nForce network manager on your computer, you have to uninstall it. That is the only connection to Nvidia there is. And they want you to remove it as it causes problems.

RTFM!
