Having problems with your Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop ?

Graphics Card recently went bad and I replaced it. It worked fine for a week or so, then the monitor just went blank. I can hook the monitor upto the onboard video and it works fine, but if I hook it up to the Graphics Card it is a blank screen. Graphics card is a NVIDIA 7300 LE, any and all help will be appreciated.
