Windows 7: new driver installed ... Monitor not responding?

new driver installed ... Monitor not responding?

ok I have no idea on this one and the good news is i can't fix it LOL.

i have an hp m9340f purchased a couple new nvidea graphics cards when I started getting the noisy fan issue .

Installed windows 7 everything worked great but was having problems with windows media center after I went to a 56k connection so i decided to format start over,
Everytime it installs the drivers for my nvidea graphics card my monitor goes black and has no signal. i tried both dif cards. same problem. I am guessing it is the recommended settings but since I only have one monitor I can't change the settings cause.. can't see to do it .. and I have no other monitor to hook to to try.
I can start up in safe mode so any idea's how to fix this issue or change it all to 800 x 600 so i can see when it starts up with new drivers .....

Hi and welcome

Have you tried to go into device manger to see if the driver is installed correctly? type device manager in search go to the display tab. Is you card listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it?

are there any other "unknown" devices with yellow on them?
