Card itself is probably faulty.

The card could be insufficiently powered. What are the specs on your power supply?

Hi there,

Are you using 169.25? Or an older version of the nvidia driver?

You could try the latest BETA drivers.

Cheers

Hi again,

If you have not tried the latest stable drivers (non-BETA) for your operating system from the Nvidia website, then I suggest you do so. Here's how:
  • Download the latest drivers from here. (If you have Vista 32-bit)
  • Right-click Computer and select Manage.
  • From the menu on the left, select Device Manager.
  • Click on the [+] next to Display Adapters.
  • You should see NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS or similar.
  • Right-click on NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS and select Uninstall.
  • Ensure that the box is checked for "Delete the driver software for this device".
  • You will need to confirm and then reboot your computer.
  • Install the new drivers that you downloaded.
If you still experience problems after this, then I would suggest your card is faulty also.

Cheers

Troy
