The new Nvidia display drivers version 196.21,have eliminated the black box at least for the 8 series,I can only test it on this series.
Thanks to haep the German Mod for passing on this information
I am delighted for all NVidia users that this patch has got rid of the black boxes!

I am back
Good to see you Chris drop me an email if you have some spare time,let me know how things are going with you
Works for me, thanks the info.
Funny isnt it how when I emailed nvidia years ago when this first happened with the 8-series, they said it wasn't their problem, it was Bluebytes - and now they're the ones who have fixed it. (Either way I now use an ATI card :P)
Weird, because I still get blackness on textures when I'm zoomed at certain distances. I run on 2 8800 GT's.
I just got my settlers 4 installed and had the same problem (9600GT notebook) but found this solution - download this modified 196.21 .inf file: Driver the first file is the 196.21 driver, and the second one is the modified .inf.
So fix for laptop users:
Download the two files,
run the 19621_win7x64.exe
move the nv_disp.inf into the extracted folder (196.21_win7x64)
Run the setup
If windows ask if you wanna continue, just press yes.
And there you go, now you have a fully functional 196.21 driver working on you laptop!
Hope this help you guys,
Just to say when I had my gaming laptop I found the laptopvideo2go drivers would cause me the dreaded bsod (blue screen of death) on boot up (this didn't happen on another laptop I had so it is dependant on hardware).
So if Stephmj's driver causes this, try the ngohq:
driver - I always found this one stable.
