Did you remove your old VC drivers and install the new Drivers for the HD 5870 ?

What brand and model is your psu? Inspect the card and cable connections for obvious defects such as burn marks or missing resistors on the card. If it all looks ok and you have tried swapping the cables around then chances are that your card is DOA (dead on arrival)

swapping cables once again. See if it works. My psu is an antec quattro 850 watts. How can i tell if my PCIe is in 16x lane mode? its in the corrects 16x slot, but can you change modes back and forth on the?

The only way to know is to refer to the manual for your board and if the card is booting at all then load up gpuz and the first screen that you will see will tell you which mode that it is working in.

In many games there is a option for windowed mode in their settings menu. I never use hot keys or combination except for the usual to keep thing simple.
