I think I had that exact problem up until recently (today).

What I did to resolve it (it's worked for a few hours) was to COMPLETELY uninstall my graphics drivers, and then use Driver Cleaner to wipe whatever traces are left after that, and then install the most recent nVidia drivers (91.33).

Hopefully that helps.
