Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. If any new hardware was been recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Do your PC support the above hardware requirements?
The most common input no support would be your graphic card is not up to the mark to play the PC games.
Is your graphics card drivers up to date to the latest?
Have you updated your DirectX to the latest version?
Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
2. Video Card
3. System memory
Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.
BACK UP :)
