What the heck is a " 4 gig graphics card " ?
Biggest I've seen is 512 MB.
You need to add more information if you want help.
Model of computer. Model of video card. Power supply size. Operating System.
Give as much info as you can.

l'm sorry senior member, but my pc donked out (ntldr prob that l couldn't fix) so l managed to put a ME OS on a 40 gig h/d. the graphics were so bad that my b/band refused to install. l took the original graphics card out and fitted one l got off the net (nvidia gforce2mx) as l couldn't access the net, no drivers.....the monitor went blank, i took that card out and installed a brand new card l picked up somewhere,(graphic master mod 205 4mb (sorry), blank screen again, so i couldn't install the drivers with the CD. when l took that card out, the monitor came on
so the onboard graphic is working in a fashion. l won't buy a new one because l'm a tight bugger, and l can't get the specs of this one until l get back on the net:rolleyes:

It would really help to know the model of computer, and are the cards PCI or AGP?
Also in BIOS there may be an option to boot with PCI or AGP and it would have to be set to the proper type for your card.
You shouldn't get a black screen if the card is seated firmly and the monitor cable is attached to the card, even if you don't have the right drivers installed.

You can download the nVidia drivers here.
