    So even when it's uninstall you still get black screen?

    What is the specs of your computer? ( tell PSU voltage and watts too )

    I think your PSU probably burnt out when you installed it, try the video card on another computer ( if you have a extra one lying around ) and see what happens then.

    I can't help you until I get the specs of your computer and what kind of videocard it was

    You probably overtaxed your el cheapo PSU and fried it. Get a strong, QUALITY PSU of 450W or more. Please post in the correct forum next time. (Audio/video)
