Hey,
not sure if you still have this problem, but I'm posting because I had identical symptoms earlier today and worked out how to overcome this problem.
(thought I'd post it here incase you were still looking or if anyone else is searching for a solution).

If your problem was the same as mine, then you wasted alot of time with all the driver swapping and so forth.

The solution was quiet simple.. disable SLI.

I think that nvidias current drivers do not support dual screen with the SLI feature activated. This is pretty silly though, because now while using my secondary monitor, I'm leaving one vga idle, and if I want to re-enable it to play a game, etc.. using both cards, I have to enable SLI, reboot the PC and only use one of the monitors..

Hopefully nvidia sort it out soon.
