GTX 750 problems

I just got a GeForce GTX 750. Everything runs fine, except Star Wars X-Wing Alliance and Jedi Knight/Mysteries of the Sith (because those two games NEVER gave me trouble with newer graphics cards, sigh).

The problem is, whenever there is a 100% black texture surface, it is rendered as transparent. So, for example, if a ship or wall has black spots on it, I see “holes” on the ship or characters or gaps in walls with a “winning solitaire” effect on them.

I fixed the problem in X-Wing Alliance by using a hacked ddraw.dll that makes the game run on DirectX 11.
I tried using it on JK, but it didn't work. I also tried other hacked ddraw.dll's with same results. So, the only way to run JK now is to use software mode.

I tried messing around in the nvidia panel settings, but I couldn't find anything that solved the problem if it didn't make it worse.

Screenshots for comparison between software and hardware modes:

Notice the table edges that used to be black are now transparent. Also notice the edges on the gun.

Notice the “sotilaire winning” effect on the previously black parts of the roof.

As I said, the card is a GTX 750. I'm using GeForce drivers 337.88. I used those with my older GTS 450 and the game ran fine. Updating to the latest drivers gives the same results. My OS is Windows 7 64 bit.
