I have seen this happening on some occasions, more so when you don't uninstall PhysX before installing the new one.

Aside from uninstalling and reinstalling the game, I would also make sure to try this from now on...

Uninstall Graphics Drivers

Or follow this one as well... do the same with PhysX drivers

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

OK, I'm confused, nothing changed ... did you do any of the other things we advise? did you went ahead and uninstall the AUDIO & VIDEO drivers, clean the registry from remnants and install a new set with elevated admin rights?
