Hi random34,
Did you uninstall previous graphics drivers prior to booting your PC with the GTX card?
This card requires one 8 pin and one 6 pin connector. Check your power connections.
Try booting in safe mode. Tap F8 repeatedly at boot. Uninstall incorrect drivers if applicable. Install Nvidia graphics drivers.
Some newer graphics cards require UEFI BIOS.
