    Sounds like the driver is not uninstalling all the way.

    Uninstall your current driver, restart, then Install either the newest Nvidia reference driver from their site, or get a compatible older version from

    To check and make sure all the files have been updated,
    Go to Display Properties

    Make sure ALL the files listed in the textbox at the bottom of that window have the same version. like

    If not, something is not uninstalling correctly.

    Other than this or a reformat, I would see if you could swap this card in another machine and see if it still has the same behavoir, that will tell you if it is hardware related.
