Yes, video cards can die. I had one die on me while I was using it at work. Not fun!
I would try the video card drivers first. If that still doesn't fix it, then I'd try the monitor (and it's cables) on another computer - to make sure it's not a monitor or cable problem. After that, it's time to try another video card - but see if you can borrow one. If you can't, then purchase one that can be returned.
I mention this because I had a customer purchase one only to find out that his motherboard was bad - and he couldn't return the video card, and had to buy a new computer!
