    What was the result when you tried different monitors?

    I would try a different cable from the graphics card to the monitor. On general principles I would try updating to the latest graphics driver if you haven't already.

    It appears so. Can you rule out the PSU being the problem?

    It could be that the fan is not getting up to full speed and that allowed the graphics card to overheat and fail but that doesn't explain why your onboard graphics doesn't work. When you tried your onboard graphics, did you physically remove the separate graphics card? If not, try it.
