    Have you got the latest driver for your card?

    Go directly to the Nvidia site

    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

    Put in your card details and operating system and hit search. Download the driver and save it to your desktop.

    Go into Device Manager and locate the card. Right click on the card and select Properties, under the Driver tab select Uninstall and then exit.

    Double click on the new driver on your desktop and it will install.

    The latest driver is dated January 2011 so hope this helps.
