Motherboard: ASUS M4N68T-M-LE-V2 (AM3)
On-board Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / NVIDIA nForce 630a
Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 250 (Regor 45nm Technology)
PSU: Not sure about the make or brand but it says 450W so I guess that's not the issue here.
RAM: 4 GB
Monitor: Dell IN3020M

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit



Used to have an HD 5570 that worked fine but then switched to a HD 5670.

Worked fine at first but then 3 days later, it doesn't work. Nothing comes on screen when I turn on the computer, not even the POST message or anything. If I type in my password after waiting 30 seconds, I can hear the Windows log in music and all but nothing comes on the screen.

Switched back to the mobo graphics adapter and it works just fine.

At first, I thought it was becasue I changed my monitor (Dell IN3020M) and I formatted my PC and did a fresh Windows install. Didn't work. tried a different monitor. Still doesn't work.

What do I do?

I think that's your GPU if the monitor display is fine with the onboard graphics.So do something,check if the GPU is proprly inserted in the sot before turning the system on.And,try the GPU on one of your friends's system to see if it gives the same problem there as well.If it does,then probably it's faulty.RMA it.
Besides,did you change the drivers or try a resolution your monitor can't support? It could result in this. I once had that problem,you know... :) 
Another thing you may need to look at is the PSU. It may be unable to power up the system with the card on. Anyway,it did before.So,it maynot be a problem. Is the PSU new one?

Um... I did uninstall the previous mobo nVIDIA card's drivers before I put the card in and tried turning the PC on. Nothing comes on the screen so I couldn't install the drivers. Was I supposed to install the drivers before putting the card in?
And the monitor is set to the default 1600x900.

Yes, about 5 months old, yes.

Well then,it's okay.You need not install the drivers before adding the GPU.And the res is default,so it does no harm.

Anyway,I forgot to mention this. A 5670 needs 26A current on 12V rail of the PSU,which should be at least 400W.Seeing that you already have 450W,I'd suggest looking at the specs and see if it has enough current on 12V rail,which is asked by the GPU (Well,that figure-26A consists of the whole system though).So look for that number on the PSU.I doubt it has enough.Besides,which is your PSU's brand?
