1) Uninstall the nVidia drivers. Reboot let the Windows Drivers take over.
2) Remove the Video Card Hardware from Device Manager and before Windows can re-discover it. Turn off your machine.
3) Pull the video card out of the machine.
4) If you have a different video card put it in or a built in video card Power Up the machine. Let the machine discover the video and then shutdown (Power OFF) the machine and put your nVidia card back in.
5) If you don't have a spare video card or a built in one. Pull the cord power from the power supply and wait 60 seconds put the video card back. Pug in the power cord and power the machine up.
6) Re-install the nVidia drivers.
7) Disable the nVidia Service this causes all kinds of problems.

I had to do this and it fixed all kinds of video issues.
Strangest thing I have ever heard. Anyways, I did uninstall the video card and then rebooted. The windows drivers loaded and then rebooted again. Still nothing.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64

The card might be a dud or the motherboard slot may have issues. Can you check with a different card? Have you used driver sweeper when uninstalling the drivers?

Windows 7 Ulti. x64

What does the device manager have say about your display adapter? does it have a yellow ? mark? What version does it say the driver is in properties?
