Default Nvidia driver/directX problem

I've got a computer running Windows 2000 and an MX440-SE. I just installed the latest drivers from the Nvidia website and DirectX 9.0c (so that I could play a new game). When I boot up to Windows, the picture is very badly distorted, sometimes the images disappears completly and comes back after a second, still very badly distorted. If I remove the Nvidia drivers and boot normally using the default Windows graphics drivers, it works fine. Or if I boot in VGA mode, it works fine (the same thing probably).
Unfortunately, I installed them at the same time and rebooted, I didn't install one and the reboot and then install the other, so I have no idea if it is the drivers or DirectX causing the problems. I've heard the MX440 is only compatible with DirectX 8.1, is this true? Could this be causing the problems? If it is true, how can you revert to DirectX version 8.1?

Any help will be greatly appreciated, the computer isn't mine so I need to get it fixed ASAP.
