Are there any artifacts or odd colours that come up during playing a game or while your on the desktop?

Are you using any unlocked pipes or pixel shaders? I have the same brand card as you and I can unlock 16 pipes.. but sometimes that gives artifacts so I changed it to 12. Try running the card at 100% stock and then install the drivers.

If it is a driver related problem then you may need to uninstall the current drivers you have and use PROGRAM CALLED ''Driver cleaner'' to get rid of all the old incompatible driver files..After you have used driver cleaner to clean the nvidia driver files which has to be done in safe mode i might add then you may re-install the latest drivers from nvdia and they may now work properly. I belive your problem is that ol previous drivers have incompatibility problems with your new ones. Driver cleaner can be found here : http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3214.html

I had the same problem with my card and this is what I did: when I booted into Windows, I hit ctrl+alt+del. It said something about having drivers that didn't work. This allowed me to at least see my desktop and everything. Then I went to the Nvidia website and downloaded the latest official drivers and rebooted. Everything works great now. Dunno if it'll work for you, but it worked for me.
