Don't give up just yet, we're running out of options here even I am starting to doubt what the heck is going with your machine. :\

Between those 2 items I am thinking one of them is a real problem here.
In your nvidia control panel try to reduce the resolution down abit and check your refresh rates.
If that isn't it at all, I would personally start looking into a issue with packard bell themselves.
Confirm that with me later on today once you figured out its not the card and I'll see what I can do to get you a RMA request by packard bell.
