Go to nvidia.com and download the driver directly from them (for your operating system) and install yourself. I don't recommend using Windows Update to manage major device drivers, like for the video card. I am sure this will solve your problem.

Good luck!

Anort3 has said exactly what my thoughts were. However if for some reason that doesn't work (although it should) try updating DirectX.

Download Driver Sweeper from here: http://phyxion.net/Driver-Sweeper/Driver-Sweeper/

Download the newest driver from Nvidia.com. Save it to your desktop or somewhere convenient. Do not run it yet.

Follow the directions here for using Driver Sweeper. http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/

Reboot from safe mode and install the new driver.

Hopefully this will solve your problems. What operating system are you running?

Try Driver Sweeper. I always get my drivers from Nvidia NOT Microsoft update. And you should always use Driver Sweeper as old drivers leave "trash" behind that can cause conflicts.
