How are you connecting your GPU to your monitor? HDMI or VGA? One quick thing to try would be to unplug your lead from both the monitor and the GPU then reattach each end after thirty seconds or so, it may be a dodgy connection causing them to not communicate properly. It's an outside shot but worth a go.

I'm still thinking its drivers though, do you have anything showing up as problematic in Device Manager under your display adapter or monitor?

VGA. Nothing problematic in the Device Manager. Maybe I should contact Nvidia?

One other thing to try would be to uninstall the card completely through Device Manager and any driver remnants, download the latest previously linked drivers and save them, then reboot and reinstall the card and the saved drivers.

Hey, I wasn't able to uninstall the NVidia PhysX, all the others tho. When I doubleclicked to uninstall it, nothing happened.
What does it stand for and how can I uninstall it?

Can you find PhysX in Remove Programs on Control Panel? Try removing it that way.

This is how I tried to remove it in the first place. Hey I don't know why, but my PC started to hickup after the new drivers - so I restored myself back to earlier time. I'm a bit sceptical about the new drivers because of that. Thanks anyway for the help so far. I'm gonna see what Nvidia forum has to say about my situation.

CHEERS ! )
