    What video card did you have before, and did you uninstall all of the old drivers?

    Any idea what video card you have before? The one you bought now may not be compatible.

    Uninstall all your GPU drivers then reinstall the latest driver.
    You could try asking on the Nvidia forums too.

    Try looking in Control Panel > Add Or Remove Programs
    I don't have your card but I have an Nvidia card. Try looking for "NVIDIA Drivers".
