Did you use the 61.** omega drivers? if so that's quite an old driver and the ones that came on the CD won't be the newest released. Go to the Nvidia site and DL the latest driver (91.31). Uninstall the previous driver via the add and remove programs in the control panel. Once you've done that run driver cleaner pro and select Nvidia from the cleaning selection box and click start to clean. Restart your machine and once it's rebooted install the 91.31 drivers and try that.
EDIT: sorry I just read your question properly, even if you tried the new drivers did you use a driver cleaner before you installed the new one, if not try removing the driver as above. I given you a link to older drivers below aswell.
