After a blue screen, Windows no longer recognises my graphics card.

My PC blue-screened while watching a youtube video. On reboot my graphics card was not recognised: no monitors other than the primary one are usable, the screen resolution is stuck at 1280x1024, and the adaptor type is listed as "vgasave".
I've already tried restoring to last night's restore point, reinstalling the graphics drivers, uninstalling (first through Control Panel, and then with Display Driver Uninstaller) them and then reinstalling them again, and still I cannot get Windows to sort itself out. The adaptor is still "vgasave".
I've also pulled out the graphics card, checked there is no dust in the slot, and reinserted it. Both power cables are connected.
I'm on Windows 7 64-bit. I have an AMD motherboard and an Nvidia GTX560 graphics card.
