Windows 7: USB Keyboard issue - drop outs, audio glitches...

USB Keyboard issue - drop outs, audio glitches...

I'm usually pretty good at this but this time I need backup! Not sure where else to ask, but here goes...

Running Windows 7 64bit, I've recently updated my Nvidia Drivers (GTX 550) to the latest build and I started to get this strange issue while playing FPS games (Tribes Ascend mainly) where the screen freezes up for 1-2 seconds and then it comes back with the keyboard unresponsive for 10 seconds or so AND it'll be stuck on whichever key I was pressing at the time it's even doing it right now as i try to type this. Keyboard drops in and out of service, somehow. I'm also gettinmg small audio glitches through my speakers via my Native Instrument Audio 4DJ external sound card.

Seems like the problem is revolving around USB devices but I've reinstalled all the drivers... any ideas? How would display drivers affect completely unrelated things?
