We can never be sure about gfx cards, it can fail at the port, at the card or the driver.

Download an application called DDU, display driver uninstaller (check for legit sources), if you're unable to login to the OS, tap on F8 and in the advanced mode choose the low resolution mode and see if that helps to boot in.

Then, remove the gfx card, use a white eraser, without touching the gold contacts with your hand, use the eraser to rub against them so they start shining. Don't overdo it, just wipe it clean so any residue/oxidation is cleared and the contacts start shining.

Reseat the card and ensure the small notch locks in and then start the computer and see if it helps.
