Is my GPU dying/faulty?

So around a year ago I got myself a Gigabyte 1050ti 4gb. It worked great, until today. I came home today around 6pm and when the screen turned on, I saw what I can only describe as if somebody threw water at a fresh painting. A portion of the screen was in different colours, another part was all blue and the rest was the desktop screen, but it was moved down to a corner and the icons looked unrecognizable. Turning the monitor off and on resulted in "No signal". Tried using HDMI cable instead of DP and got "No signal" again. Restarting the pc, and... it didn't wanna turn on. I took the gpu out, cleaned it of all dust and whatnot and put it back in its place. Pc turned on and everything worked, until after about 20min when i finished my dinner and saw the same screen i saw when I came home. Monitor would show no signal again, but the pc restarts now, and the monitor looks normal after a restart. Is the GPU done for or could something else be the issue?

I will post pics if/when it happens again

I would try a different monitor, just to rule that out. If it doesn't work with a different monitor you should do a driver reinstall, just to rule that out too. If nothing helps I would write an RMA. In theory we should also test the psu but since there is no load on the gpu I would rule that out right away.

If you find any grammar or spelling errors please fill out entry permit A38, thanks.

I have reinstalled the drivers and don't have the issue since then. If it happens again, ill try using my old monitor. What I did realize before reinstalling the drivers was the fact that everything goes to hell only after the monitor shuts itself down when the pc is not used.
