Do you have intergraded video on your MOBO(motherboard) if so trun it off in your BIOS.
What did you have installed before this, as in intergraded or a video card?

hmm. Removing the drivers might be hard since u don't have any icons and no start button

But I'd say that there is some problem with the drivers, since this happened right after u installed them. So just try to uninstall the current drivers and get some other ones.

Aren't XFX the people that pre-overclock the cards? They've always seemed pretty good to me, and always allow alot of room for a bit of an extra push, so surely the cooling can't be THAT bad?

It could be now that my answer from a previous post could apply.

MIGHT THINK YOU HAVE TWO MONITORS:

It might be thinking you have two monitors connected, and is displaying a second screen, like it would if another one was beside it, which would only show the background and mouse if not set to show anything.

Right click and go to Properties, and then to Settings.

Hopefully if you are lucky since only 1 screen is running, the box should appear on the screen, and not on one thats not there (won't be good).

Here, you'll see 2 monitor screens most likely in a box, with a little drop down.

Try moving the little monitors across, swapping them, so hopefully your monitor will display the right screen, or use the drop down list to select the right monitor.

If you press Apply and it works then great

Then, go into Advanced Properties, and to Monitors, and make sure it knows you only have 1 monitor installed.

I hope this helps.

*EDIT*

Plus, if people have complained about this issue, it won't be the card causing it, since the cards working. It'll more than likely be the drivers not setting right.
