Videocard turns off after installing driver

My computers spec you can see in the profile.
The problem comes after I install video card drivers and reboot. I see on the screen that windows starts, and than video card turns off. Even coolers do not rotate.
What might be the problem? I tried it with different driver versions, the same result.
