I chose this card because it seemed like the right one for the price and perfomance. I've found a review where the same motherboard and video card were used together, so it must have worked for someone.
When I turn the system on, the HD7770 gives me an ominous red LED2. The fan comes on, but I get no display. Otherwise, the system boots without errors. I'm using the on-board video in the meantime. I've tired forcing the BIOS to use the PCIe video, but it defaults back to Auto regardless. Also in the system are the following: ASUS P8Z77-V LE motherboard, Intel SSD on 6Gbps SATA, LG BluRay burner, TP-LINK WN781ND PCIe wireless, Corsair CX500 PSU 500W, 16Gb G-Skill RAM.
I've tried removing the Wifi card, and there were no changes. Any other ideas?
