No damage anywhere.

Using a Zalman VF3000

Double checked all the washers/spacers?

Thermal paste?
Double check the pcb for damage, stray thermal paste.
Maybe try giving the die area a scrub down with a soft toothbrush and alcohol.

Also try moving the card to another slot and use a functional card to boot with, see if you can boot like that.

Well no spacers or washers on the stock shroud so cant be that, I did do a cleaning on the die and surrounding area with 99% isopropyl alcohol and a q tip, think it would be worth it to try again? No damage on the pcb anywhere that I can see, no loose caps or anything. The slot is fine since I used another card in it.

Not to check the slot, to see what windows makes of the 5870.

Have you tried smelling it? Also, try it with the stock cooler in a spare comp?

You don't have any molex adapters from previous cards?

Install the 5770> Start> Uninstall ATI drivers> shutdown> install 5870 secondary slot> restart...

See what happens

BTW do you have a spare monitor?
