    When did it "Black Screen" ? when computer turned on ? or within windows. If it did not turn on at all, you'll maybe have to get in the BIOS and change from internal video to PCI. Some video cards require added power to it or more powerful power supply.

    I would go to something like AMD Radeon? R7 Series Graphics because it does not have heavy power requirements and will certainly be much better than integrated one.
