Black screen with new PCI video card

\015 I've got similar problem like http://www.fixya.com/support/t2244032-black_screen_agp_video_card_update.Except I got PCI card (GeForce 8400 GS). Running Windows 7. Downloaded latest drivers from EVGA site and they are apparently working correctly. However, I just get black screen, although I set BIOS to 'Auto' and Video DAC Snoop to 'on'.I have a 650W PSU, I uninstalled drivers for onboard video card. Power is present as I can see illumination in the background.Tried it also on Dimension 3100 running XP pro SP3 - same thing. Called EVGA, they said it's a HW problem and replaced the card. I still have same problem. What in the world am I doing wrong???\015
