Assuming you properly fully installed it into the first PCI-E 16x slot, you have to plug your monitor to the graphics card's DVI / HDMI output

If your PC is ancient, you may have to disable onboard video from BIOS first

Is your monitor VGA only? Or does it also come with DVI? The DVI connectors are wider and is white in color

Radeon HD 6770 requires a 1 6-pin PCI-E power plug (or 6-pin to molex plug). Did you plug this in?

ok everything is running now but now i have a new problem..... apparently my graphic card doesnt read at all like if i open dxdiag and look at display tab everything is N/A so i put in my xfx driver cd card it says "we are unable to detect xfx product at the moment please restart, if this problem persist then press ok to continue" so i restarted my computer nothing changed when i used the cd again the same thing popped up

Just install latest Catalyst drivers from AMD website

Your monitor is connected to the Radeon 6770 right? Not the one with all other motherboard ports.
