    I had an issue with my mac starting which I resolved by replacing the graphics card. The mac now starts without issue BUT!
    In display preferences there is only one display resolution, no detect display button and if I try to calibrate the sliders have no effect

    I have tried resetting PRAM and SMC with no effect and also tried a different monitor

    It sounds like the driver isn't working properly (no Quartz Extreme). Make sure you're using the version of the 5770 designed for use with a Mac.

    your OS is WAY too old

    you need 10.6.5 for that card

    that system report is from 10.5.x
