Have a look at this thread click here it appears the drivers are BETA drivers and as such could be the problem. I think you're stuck till they bring out full properly tested ones.

Just checked the Nvidia website they are definatly BETA drivers and their comment
"These NVIDA Windows Vista drivers are under development. This version is not fully optimized for full 3D performance and may not include all available features available on different operating systems."
I notice they missed the I out of Nvidia.

If you Google a search term along the lines of "nvidia vista drivers" you will discover much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the patchy driver support for Vista.

I have the very latest nvidia drivers
running on my setup and fortunately
I also have 3DMark06 (updated) running
on Vista Ultimate. The score on my new
setup hit 10323 my XP score for my 8800GTX
was 10341 not a great deal of difference
with work on the drivers there will be improvements. They may be betas but I have
no complaints the only problem I have had
has been CL drivers (nightmare stuff) for
my X-Fi Fatal1ty. The support is not good
and what is available did not install
properly, I did eventually get the better
of it in the end. I am gaming with Vista
online no problems I even have a fully
functioning Vista (32 Bit) beta driver for
my Razor mouse.

Its not all doom and gloom Vista has quirks
but I like it.
