If this is a non Mac edition or Apple card, this is normal until OS X boots up. You will not get an image at startup if it does not have an Apple or Mac Edition ROM.

If it's an Apple card, this should not happen. Try new monitor(s) and try again. If it goes away, it's the monitor.

If it still happens, check if the card has PCIe power plugged in. If not, find a cable and plug it in to get the card working. If it has PCIe power plugged in, it's a bad video card and you will need to replace it.
