Were you using the onboard graphics before installing your new card?? or another one.. because you might have conflicting drivers. Its a good idea to uninstall the older drivers before installing new ones.. you can enable onboard graphics from bios this hit "esc" "del" or sometimes "F10"

+1 for Sinflux suggestion. Try uninstalling any display drivers you might have had before using Driver Cleaner. Make sure you only uninstall display drivers, not chipset or otherwise.
