I've been through a lot of issues with my computer recently, and I've come to the conclusion that I believe my video card is faulty. How so?

I did a reset on my BIOS settings and after that my card was undetected in the settings. (I could not select to launch with it) I had a full black screen on my monitor, and once I used a motherboard access with HDMI I could easily use my computer again (with lowered specs ofc) I have a feeling the card is dead, as it was about 4 - 5 years old, and the computer has been used A LOT.


Does it seem possible?
