Well, if NVidia/the machine manufacturer would have the newest driver, and if it says you've the newest one, there's nothing better on the market. However, on their website they should also have the previous drivers available, and I would try downloading one, and doing a rollback to that driver.

You should look for a previous version, not another type of driver. Did you previously attempt to install a different driver?

No I have not, but I did manually updated from XP to 7 in January.

By the way, I just bought Batman Begins (the movie before the Dark Knight), and it does the same exact thing. So what the heck is going on?!

I'm just putting the disk into my comp and letting it play, the default player is Windows Media Player. Im going to try playing it with Quicktime or something to see if that's any better.
