Here's the problem.
I got a computer built and the video card resolution that it was installed on was 1080p and my monitor doesn't have that. So now when I hooked it up to mine i get nothing but a black screen. Monitor doesn't boot up and stays in standby mode. I'm running this through an HDMI cable as well. I've taken the video card out off and can run the computer fine off VGA / on-board video card. I've messed around in the BIOS / Boot screen to start on low resolution then I would install the video card and I got it to work twice (kinda) the screen would have lines goin all crazy in it and then it would just go to a blue / black screen. I would reboot and the monitor wouldn't turn on again.
The video card I'm trying to get working is the:
