I realize you have re-intalled drivers, but just to make sure you did the proper sequence, please follow the next steps for your display card drivers.
  1. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  6. Expand Display adapters
  7. Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)
    • Right click the adapter
    • Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
    • Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  8. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  9. Install the latest driver for the display cards once Windows starts

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user
  2. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)

  4. Click Control Panel
  5. Click Hardware and Sound
