  2. Best answer
    re install the newest drivers anyway
    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
    download the applicable driver for your os
    uninstall said driver from-- control panel/programs/uninstall a program
    find the new driver in your downloads
    unzip and run setup
    if it still does it your card may be sick....just dump some chicken soup over it (or not)
  3. Try uninstalling normally then go into safe mode and use drive sweeper. After do a fresh install with the latest drivers.
