Gainward Phoenix GeForce gtx 1070 does not load

First of all thanks for having a look and hope you guys can solve my problems.

Specs:
GIGABYTE H110M-S2H LGA1151 ddr4 motherboard
GEIL 16gb ram
Phoenix GeForce gtx 1070
Antec 650W psu model EA-650
Intel core i5 6400 skylake 2.7ghz

I just bought my 1070 off a friend two days ago and I've been trying to get it to work since then. I've done some research online and I've found out that I need to install ddu to get rid of the old drivers first and then replace my old Radeon hd 6870 with the new 1070 then attempt to install new drivers once that's in. It didn't work. Then I've done some more research and found out that I needed to clear cmos to get my bios to reconfigure to the new graphics card. It worked after that which was nice. This happened at 3am which then I need to head to bed for work early morn. Without installing new drivers I've shut down my PC and left. When I came back to it, it wouldn't run anymore. I've tried going back to old graphics card and it works, I've also tried using ddu for both amd and gtx but now it still gives me a tiny loading circle at the bottom of the circle after the Windows logo disappear when I'm back on 1070. I'm on Windows 10 btw. Is there a particular order on which I have to do things? Or is the 1070 not compatible with my specs. Oh and I've seen some comments about the "legacy only" in the bios, is is related to my misery? Cheers

    No, it is not your power supply or your CPU holding it back, I''m assuming. Have you already attempted to try this graphics card on another computer? If not, please do so, and please reply back with some results. I'm started to think that this card is faulty, and that's not good because you have bought it from a friend. I'm also guessing you didn't ask him to prove if it worked or so, and you don't know how much warranty is left upon it. Best of luck!
  2. No he's completely trustworthy, he been using it for a year now and the only reason he's selling it was because he just didn't like the colour of it... And now he's getting a 1080 ti. So please factor out the friend issue, any other possible cause?

    I have no reason to see that it's your power supply, and I think it's the graphics card. After you install your graphics card, please make sure all connections are secure and then go into the BIOS and see if the graphics card is even detected.
