So i bought a new mobo and it has some crappy ati 3000 graphics card on it, so i also bought a Radeon HD 5770(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161338) looks great and when i plug it in the fan runs and everything and when i plug my monitors cord into the dvi adapter(the video card does not take the blue one) my monitor goes into standby mode, i also have the drivers i really would like this video card to run so thanks in advance

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.
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?
