Default GPU problem

Hello everyone I am new here so I might be doing something really stupid so if i am feel free to correct me. I currently have a EVGA GT220 graphics card and I was using MSI Afterburner to overclock it slightly and tonight while I was playing COD4 my computer blue screened on me(windows 7) After I rebooted from the blue screen my computer was slow so I thought maybe my graphics driver got screwed up so I went to Nvidia,s website and downloaded them again and installed them. Now things seem to be a little fast but when i go into the MSI afterburner I can now no longer change my shader clock and all of the settings are really low. Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes, but I use EVGA Precision.

It is caused by the version of Afterburner you are running not being compatible with the newest Nvidia drivers. Check MSI's site for a newer version that will work with the newest Nvidia drivers, or hit up EVGA for theirs.... it works for any Nvidia card, not just EVGA's stuff.
