Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
Can you please post your computer make and model number?
Have you tried entering your BIOS setup utility and check the settings related to your video graphics?
What type of video card are we talking about here? is this card intergrated into the motherboard, AGP or PCI-e?
Where did you try to download the drivers from?
I see where you say it hangs at bootup, so I realize the driver may or may not be the issue, the question is does your present BIOS support this card?
Does your PSU have enough output to successfully power up the video card?
I can not offer much help to you until I know what hardware we are working with here.
Is this a new card you have just added to this computer?
I had a computer years ago that I added a new video card to and until I flashed the BIOS to an updated version, the computer kept re-booting (cycling) when the video card was installed, that is until I updated the BIOS firmware.
I'll be watching for your reply then we'll take it from there.
