Default Please help. Video card apparently did nothing!!

I purchased a PCI video card and installed it into an existing slot in my computers motherboard. I then turned the computer on and ran the software. The software installed sucessfully, and I then restarted the computer. I then opened microsoft flight simulator, and there is no change!!! Not even the slightest. The gameplay is still a little "choppy", and the graphics haven't improved in the least. I noticed that the video card has a port for a monitor, but when I plugged my monitor into it, the screen stays black. If you restart the computor, with the monitor connected to the video card, the monitor WILL display the windows logo, etc...but after windows runs the screen goes back to black.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
