What was your previous card? In any case, use your old card and uninstall whatever drivers you had for it. Install nVidia's latest drivers for the GTX285, shut down, replace your old card with the GTX285 and boot the system up.

The latest drivers are 197.45. Not sure if you simply got the numbers mixed up or not. Did you build this new computer from scratch or was it pre-built? Have you tried reinstalling the drivers anyway? Never hurts to try that.

What TV are you using? It might be that your TV doesn't support the extra resolutions. In some cases, it might even be a bad DVI/HDMI cable (quite rare).
