Just to verify what program do you use in order to capture?

Are you trying to capture from a VCR or VHs?

Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.
If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

1. Kindly check the power cable and the video cable mount it properly. if this is not the problem or the power led of the LCD is lit, skip this step. 2. Try swapping the DVI cable to the other DVI header.
In my opinion the video card is not defective, as you have said. your PC already booted all the to desktop, a defective video card would boot to desktop without display. it will boot with artifacts or the PC will hang because of the defect.
Kindly give feedback if I helped you. Thank you for posting.

Did you hook up your monitor directly to your video cards' visual port (whether it's VGA, DVI or HDMI) ?
Did you make sure the driver you downloaded are compatible with your graphics card ? with your operating system ?

Frankly, I don't have any more suggestion than looking in your graphics card's manual to check troubleshoots. They might give you an idea.

One more thing, if you time ahead of you, you might want to check if your motherboard is compatible with your graphics cards. To do that you might want to pay a visit to the almighty Google.

Good luck !

Usually that happen once the resolution of your monitor cannot meet the desire need, it depends the kind of monitor that you have even if you change different kind of video card, its still happend.
Try to change the resolution to lower one.
Here's the step
1. right click on the desktop ( a place where there is not icon on your screen)
2. choose properties
3. then settings
4. adjust the screen resolution to lower settings some on the color setting
5. then ok.

Need help with black screen

Try looking at the back of the TV and ensuring that the incoming cable is in the correct input. If you have audio and video cables make sure they are placed in the same input. What type of cable do you have directv or comcast?

From your post, it seems like Windows is booting correctly, but your card isn't correctly displaying the signal once the machine tries to load into your user profile.

Go into Safe Mode and uninstall the drivers for the card. Go back to the beginning of the installation process and follow it step-by-step. If this does not help, try inserting the card first, and then installing the drivers afterwards.
