Does your monitor have an Input button where you have to click it to PC?

What do you mean "it can't find it"? Are you seeing the POST screen? What connections are you using, HDMI, VGA? Are you getting an error "VGA not found"?

Are you able to hook up both monitors at the same time and get to Windows where you can pull up the Nvidia Settings on the monitor that works?

Might have to go into BIOS and set your PCI-E slot to intialize first instead of your onboard graphics. BIOS may have reverted this option back to your onboard graphics adapter when it noticed a hardware change (you swapping video cards).

You could actually test this by plugging your monitor into your onboard graphics when your new card is installed to see if you get video then.

Try Plugging your Video into the Onboard display port. If you get a display then could be a bad display port on your video card maybe. But most likely not the case. Don't go into the bios and turn off onboard, otherwise if your gpu goes out. Unless you get a new Video card, your screwed

Update: My card is now automatically, but i had to set the onboard graphics as primary display to do this, now when i go into my BIOS i have a choice of either setting my primary as PCI-E, PCI or Onboard. Any ideas?

You say you have an old video card...
Before installing a new video card, you should uninstall all the drivers for the old one. Then you install the new card. Windows will use generic drivers for it, then you load the "real" ones.

Iv just put my old card back in and my PC found it straight away and installed the drivers, but when i put the new card in, i used the onboard graphics and once the PC started up it automatically installed that too.

Set your primary as PCI-E and then plug your monitor into your new video card. That's what I was saying in my first post. Try it and tell me if it works.
