Default Moniter shutting off

I've installed a new video card in my PC, along with it's software. It all looks fine, but when i try and play games, such as CS:S and WoW the moniter shuts off. I've been told by some people(inexperianced) that it is my intergrated video interferring with my new video card. Just need help if I can get it please.

If that is the case. Go into bios and disable the integrated video.

Easiest way:

1. Right Click my computer>Manage>device manager
2. Click on display devices
3. Disable the onboard one
