    Chances are it is the driver you installed.
    Make sure the card is in it's slot firmly or move it to another.
    If that fails then roll back the driver to the previous one.
    Click Start > Control Panel > System. Choose hardware then Device Manager. Open up Display Adapters double click on the Installed adapter. Choose Drive and roll back.
    Alternatively restore the system back to when it worked ok. The latter may require re-intalling any software installed after that restore point date.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
