Alright. Try installing the drivers for your card (if it lets you) first, then install it.

It looks like its not letting me since the card is not in the socket right now. If I switch from the card to the on board while the card is in the socket it will still give me the black screen.

Odd. Is there another computer you could try the card in?

Make sure you have installed the graphics drivers. In the BIOS, look for a setting about VGA and change it to PCIe.
