Looks like everyone ignored your rig :(

No entry at Windows update

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=pci\ven_10de%26dev_064c%26subsys_01451025

No support in the Acer OEM drivers or the latest legacy drivers 309.08 and 341.95

That means you must manually edit the INF of each driver you try, e.g. in 341.95 change

nvami.inf :

...

NVIDIA_DEV.064C.1912.1043 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT"

to

NVIDIA_DEV.064C = "NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT"

I see the driver supports the 9650M GS but not the GT

Grab attached INF, unzip it then overwrite the one in the 'Display' Folder for driver above (186.84)

Run setup

 

I've modded the INF to make the 9700M GT into the 9650M GT
Hopefully the 9700M GT section has the required settings to stop the black screen issue

Did Windows 7 at fresh install not have a driver ?

I seem to remember Sony's having issues way back in time with same 9650

Grab the number I've highlighted in picture but for your machine
Google this for a driver, hopefully it will find an exact match

Only reference Google has when I search your results is from Russia someone bought a 9650m GT from ebay and put it in a Acer 8620G
Has someone put the 9650m GT in your laptop ?

Hi,

 

I have had the laptop about 5 - 6 years now and the card was in it when I got it used so no idea if it was in there when new.

One more try - this is with a 9600M GT turned into 9650M GT - have a try; I think 9650 is more 9600 than 9700 like - but the difference is probably just on clock speeds.

064x class GPUs
Probably all the same, with different clock speeds and certain bits en/disabled

NVIDIA_DEV.0640 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT"
NVIDIA_DEV.0641 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0642 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS   "
NVIDIA_DEV.0643 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT "
NVIDIA_DEV.0644 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS"
NVIDIA_DEV.0645 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS "
NVIDIA_DEV.0646 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 120"
NVIDIA_DEV.0647 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT"
NVIDIA_DEV.0648 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS"
NVIDIA_DEV.0649 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT / GeForce GT 220M"
NVIDIA_DEV.064A = "NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT"
NVIDIA_DEV.064B = "NVIDIA GeForce 9500M G"
NVIDIA_DEV.064C = "NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT"
NVIDIA_DEV.064D = "NVIDIA G96"
NVIDIA_DEV.064E = "NVIDIA G96 "
NVIDIA_DEV.064F = "NVIDIA GeForce 9600 S"

Have you checked the temperature of the GFX chip if it is overheating? You could have GPU-Z logging into a file and check it after the freeze. One possibility is to underclock the chip and see if it works longer - using Nvidia Inspector or MSI Afterburner for instance.
