Nvidia GTX 560 SE problems :/

Hey everyone, I feel like this is my last hope for scouring the internet for an answer I am looking for.

I recently bought a EVGA Nvidia 560 SE from newegg and threw it into my motherboard only to find that I couldn't install the drivers. After a few hours I figured it out and booted up using my card. Everything was working properly until I tried to throw a game at it. It shut down and restarted my computer. I was not able to start windows 7 using the card again because it would go to the screen after the bios that says "Starting Windows" and freeze. After freezing it would restart my computer again in a cycle.

I'm pretty positive my PSU is sufficient to run it. The required is a 450w and I'm running a 500w

So I shut down my computer, went into my bios and reverted back to my onboard graphics I was using previously. After I did that everything worked fine. It was exactly the way it was before I installed my card. I notice now though that after doing this my GPU fan isn't spinning like it was at first. It stopped. The card is not recognized anywhere and I'm scared that my card just stopped working.

Could anyone shed light on this?

that coolermaster psu is probably the problem
replace it with aquality psu like corsair cx 500 or even cx 430 and you should be fine

I have never had another GPU in it. Kinda depressing considering its my first time haha. I still don't see how it could be the problem though. Would it just not be supplying enough power somehow?

I am currently debating on taking it to a repair shop pretty soon. They would have a wider testing range than me considering the fact that the only thing I really have to work with is the same rig.

Are all the drivers up to date?

Mobo and GPU?

What mobo do you have and CPU?

Drivers are up to date except the graphics card mainly because it wont run in a stable form and I had to remove them. However when I had gotten the card working that one time all of my drivers were current. My MOBO and CPU are in previous replies of mine.
