I've made your mistake, you need to remove the NVidia Consumer Stereo 
driver -- the Quadro driver supports stereo natively.  The Consumer Stereo 
driver is for GeForce graphics cards (ie., consumer graphics cards, not 
workstation graphics cards).

The lastest Quadro driver is version 91.36.

You still need to configure the Quadro graphics driver for stereo after 
you install it.
