Try the installation again using the "clean install" checkbox. If you still don't get anything then you might want to roll back to an earlier driver. The latest drivers don't always work as well even if they are WHQL.

I thought that with the Optimus drivers we had to use drivers custom tweaked by the vendor for their computer(s). With computers like the G-series that run solely nVidia (no Optimus :)), you can run the nVidia reference drivers without difficulty? Is this true, or is what I have been told nonsense?

Well, if you don't want to roll back then I think you'll have to look for optimus fixes for each application that is broken. I don't think there is a universal fix for all at once.
