    Hi there, mind if I ask a few questions?:

    Do you know that the card works? (perhaps you can test it in another system)
    What is your OS?
    What version of the Nvidia drivers are you using?
    You say that you can see the loading page, is that the BIOS as it loads or the Windows loading screen?

    it worked fine on an XP rig. but this is a Vista OS.
    Nvidia 197.45 and the Omega drivers are 1.169.25.
    Windows loading with the bar in lower centre screen then after this just blank black when Drivers are installed after restart.
    boots into vista fine with no drivers giving me 32-bit resolution 1600x1200
    lowest 800x600.

    tbh I don't think the mega drivers support your OS/card
    get the latest nvidia ones and make sure thy are 64 bit if your OS is 64 bit.
