is my GPU dead now? (tech help inside)

So I made another topic about this last week sometime, I came home from a 3 week trip and found my computer on with a blue screen (but not BSOD). It happened again last night, the same blue screen in the middle of a Hearthstone match. Thought giving it the night to cool off would help, but booted it up this morning and got the second image on the other monitor, and the computer not even detecting my Main monitor (main is HDMI on the left, secondary is DVI on the right). Now I'm just thinking the GPU is dying/dead. It as in a surge protector strip at my house, but none of the clocks had been reset so I don't think it was a power surge.

What do you guys think?

If you have done all other troubleshooting such as re-installing drivers, making sure the GPU is plugged in properly etc, then its safe to say it most likely is your GPU.

Was your computer off for your 3 week trip and was suddenly on when you came home without anyone using it?

any lightning storms while you were gone, that can fry (hell even cut on) electronics.

Yeah, I 100% know I turned it off before I left, because I made sure to update all my games before turning it off and such. I came back home, put away some stuff, went upstairs and it was on. No one else was in the house the 3 weeks either, we were all on the trip.

There probably were storms there, but it was in a surge protector strip. I did not switch off the PSU or unplug it though, just turned the computer off through Start menu. I don't think there was a surge at the house anyways, none of the electronics were reset throughout the house
