Default Monitor going black on brand new build???

I just built my first gaming rig, so first issue I came across is once I installed new drivers for my gtx 550ti directly from nvidia website, first of all it gets to "installing nvidia update" and stops. It seems to install all other aspects (graphics drivers, hd audio) but fails at the updator part. Once I install drivers and reboot, my monitor will go black which can be fixed by powering off the monitor an powering back on. This happens a few times and then seems to stop. Any ideas as to what could cause this???

did you install any graphics drivers before?

have you tried downloading just the graphics drivers without the suite?
