If you are still having problems after following Spaceagecow's advice:

This seems like an obvious driver issue. You may have an incorrect graphics card driver installed, no graphics card driver or it has not installed correctly.

Go to Start > right-click My computer > manage > select > device manager > scroll down to Dispay Adapters and expand this heading.

You should now see the card you installed. If not, you have no display driver installed or you also might see a yellow exclamation mark (meaning you definately have either an incorrect driver installed or an incorrectly installed driver.
If your video card name is being displayed, right-click it and select Uninstall.
When complete, reboot and then insert the disk that came with the card and re-install the display driver and reboot

Step 1. If this is a second-hand card with no disk, let me know exactly which card you have and what operating system you are using and I will give you a link to the correct driver to download.

Step 2. If you installed the driver and it's still playing up, follow step 1.

Yes, maybe the problem is with your drivers. Just goto "Control Panel" uninstallation option. You will see your driver here. Just uninstall it and re-install again after restarting. Again, You haven't told what your G card is. You should install the latest version because if your G card is a little older it may not support your win.
But also remember, after uninstalling, if your graphics works properly, you don't need to install drivers because Win 7 can automatically catch and recognize drivers.

I also have an ASUS GTX400 series card, so give this a try -

Please go here: http://support.asus....lk4mHtGKaKSDDOJ
and download Version 267.85 from ASUS Support for a GTX400 series card in a W7 64bit setup. There is no mention of the Nvidia Geforce 400 series driver 285.62. for some (ASUS) reason.

Edit to add info:
As there is also a card bios update available and offered in that link, I would try the above possible fix before attempting to update a card bios. One mistake and goodbye card! :(

I think it's worth a shot to install what ASUS recommends, not Nvidia.
Your choice of course.

Still, it may or may not fix the problem, but it's a process of elimination and the driver is one of the best places to start.
