Problem with installing SAPPHIRE R7 260X Driver

I have just bought VGA card "SAPPHIRE R7 260X 2GB GDDR5 OC" to upgrade my PC. During installing the card driver it shows me the warning: "WARNING: Screen may flicker or go blank during installation" then the screen goes black and never come again till I force restart. I tried installing the driver CD and the latest driver from AMD website but both of them did the same. I don't know where is the problem !!
My PC specs are:
Processor: AMD PHENOM X2 550
MotherBoard: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GT-UD3H
RAM: Kingston 2GB/1333/CL9 DDR3
PSU: GIGABYTE GE-N500A-C2 500W
Monitor: samsung LS19C150
