Last night everything was fine with my system. Today I get the message on my monitor "no signal". I swapped monitors so it's not that. Can I assume it's the GPU? If I had a virus or it was software, I would still have a signal to the monitor, right? Is my only troubleshooting option to swap the GPU? Thanks!!

your cable also might have problems, try a new cable
and then a second GPU, to make sure it is the original GPU
I bought a new GPU from Newegg so if it's not that at least they have a great return policy.
Thinking ahead, if it's not the GPU then what are my options? How can I troubleshoot the main board and cpu?
