Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

You need to disable the on-board graphics in BIOS.

However, according to this;

your board does not have any onboard graphics.

This for the motherboard you have listed in your specs,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M4A77T

or a different one seeing as that board doesn't have onboard graphics.

Could you please post a screen shot of Device Manager showing the display adapter as well as the properties for it.

Heck I'd like to know what you are connecting the monitor cable too, as there isn't a VGA port of any kind on that motherboard.

ummm. You do know that u can press Prt Scrn on ur keyboard and paste it in paint and save it and it will be come a image file.

Did you uninstall ur gpu's drivers before installing the HD 5770? Usually when u insert a dedicated gpu, the onboard is suppose to disable itself.
