  1. Sounds like a dead card, unless you have plugged it in wrong. Try re-seating it and plugging in the PSU leads in a different order.
  2. Might be a stupid point, but did you plug the 5770's 6pin PCIExpress power connector in?
    Another stupid point - are you plugging your monitor into your graphics card, or the DVI from your motherboard?
