Uninstall the drivers via the device manager and software*check the little box.*

Use this after uninstalling drivers: http://phyxion.net/item/driver-sweeper.html

Now restart and install drivers from:

im not very good with softwares, when i read reviews on cnet about that driver sweeper, some people seemed to have messed up the whole process, so you think i can do it? is it clear enough for a software dummy like me?

i think i solved it, in display section there were 3 adapters , 1 intel hd 4000 , 2 gtx690, i disabled intel hd 4000 and tried to open nvidia control panel, and it opens now, i will try your method if i still experience in future tho, thanks...

I used to use Driver Sweeper but don't any longer. It appears if you use nVidia's install tool, and choose custom install, you can control what you want to have installed. You also need to check the box that tells it to do a clean install.
