try connecting to a different monitor. Use a different cable. Connect to the motherboard. Try removing the gpu. Those are my ideas.

here are a few things to try
Update bios(if possible)
Clear Cmos (don’t forget to unplug the computer from the wall and let it sit for few minutes, if you don’t have a jumper than remove the battery make sure the computer is unplugged and let it for about10 minutes before putting the battery back in)
Check your psu
Make sure your computer is hooked up correctly
Run memtest(if possible)
Run Burnintest (if possible)
If all else fails then try a gpu, Ram, or psu from another computer
Hope this helped!
