Try connecting the screen to the motherboard's onbaord graphics and see if it works.

It doesn't work if the graphic card is plugged in to the PSU both onboard and the graphic card

I haven;t quite understood what you mean. Unplug the graphics card from the motherboard and the power supply. Then use the cable to connect the monitor straight to the motherboard.

Have you tried booting up in safe mode?

P.S. I honestly hate PowerColour. So many people have problems with their products. Maybe you should RMA the card, get a full refund and buy a good brand.

Connect the card and boot in safe mode. See if it works. Also what OS are you using?

Connect the monitor with the motherboard leaving the graphics card plugged into the PCIe slot and the card's power cables unplugged. Boot into safe mode, and once inside plug the power cables on the card. See if the system recognizes the card.

The fan from the GPU runs very fast but still not recognized

Well then you should return the card and get your money back. This card won't work.

They say it worked fine, but there are no proof.
