Black Screen after installing new Graphics card

  1. I deleted all of my old ATI graphics card drivers, and even used a 3rd party tool to whipe out the traces in safe mode after. I then installed my new nvidea GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics card. I installed the drivers as well as active X.

    During my first gaming session with the new card, it randomly cut to a black screen and the fan started to spin at a pretty high rate. (Fan on graphics card)

    Anyone have any clue what I can do here?

    System Specs (MB, CPU, Memory, PSU, OS)?
    Are you running two monitors?
    Have you considered the possibility of adjusting the screen refresh rate?
    Do you have anything overclocked?
    Are you generating any minidumps?

    More information would be helpful.
    And I am sure someone here can help you track down the issue...
