i have an ati 5770 radeon being installed i have a 700w modular psu

when i put the gpu into the pcie slot and hook in the power the pc wont boot (wont even show bios) the monitor recognizes it but goes into power saving mode and all fans are at a full load

when i have the card in the pcie slot without the power hooked in to it the cards fan will run, it only does this when i hook in the power which i obviously need to do to get it to work

If you put the old card back, does the PC boot fine? If not, you have some issues, probably need to replace the motherboard. If the old card works fine, you may have a bad 5770, or the motherboard is having issues with it. Try updating your BIOS then trying the new card. Also check to make sure all of your cables are tight on the power supply, I noticed you said it was modular, maybe the cable to the power for the card is a bit lose.

See if you can find a spare video card to try, if that one works, I'd try to RAM the card you have it it's new. It's generally a bad idea to boot a video card that needs power without it, can damage the card.

oops, I meant RMA (return material authorization), fancy way of saying "return it and get a new one" ;)

(the motherboad was previously integrated video and yeah it boots fine) Did you turn off onboard vid in bios before you install new card????

It is a socket 939 which is a bit old, but I would not give up on it. See if you get get a new BIOS from HP for the system and then try the video card again (make sure you plug in the power to the card before booting).
