    Don't take this the wrong way but did you connect the monitor cable to the new card?

    Just in case, you should have unplugged the monitor from the old one and plugged in the new card while the computer was off. Then restart and let windows detect the monitor.

    ensure the monitor drivers are also loaded. Yes - some monitors require drivers too!

    I have an old gateway monitor I use with a home built system and it requires drivers in addition to graphics card drivers.
