Updated graphics card to amd radeon r9 380 OC 4GB and now getting black screen

I had a GTX 670 in a computer i bought on craigslist and it crapped out so I needed a new card. I bougha AMD radeon r9 380 OC 4GB and when I try and turn on the computer all i get is a black screen. All the fans are running and the 2 fans on the card are running. I deleted all my old drivers and stuff. And when I take the card out and just run it without the card plugged in the computer works fine. The latest BIOS drivers are from 2012 on my board.

Asus maximus 4 gen 4 Gen Z
AMD Radeon 380 OC 4gb
16 gb ram
intel i5-2500k
cosair 450m power supply
2 tb hard drive

    Don't know then. You could try re-seating the card (remove and firmly put it back).
  4. Did you reset the BIOS after installing the card? Also set the primary GPU to Auto in the BIOS.
