Noise Issues After Nvidia Video Card Installation

Ever since I fitted an Nvidia 970GTX video card I have had a persistent & fairly horrible noise on the input channel of Cubase. I use a Steinberg UR22 as my sound card & so have disabled all Nvidia sound options I can find but the noise is still there. Prior to fitting the card the input channel was as silent as it should be. Has anyone else encountered this type of issue? Better yet, if you have, have you solved it?
