I have bought a faulty motherboard which corrupted SSD severely, took me 3 full days to fix that, now that same motherboard broke GPU and I believe it's going to be bricked drivers as well rather than fried component, normal reinstall does not help. The GPU is detectable however if I put 1% or more fan speed through MSI Afterburner, the fan literally spins 10x faster it's maximum speed, it's like an airplane, you have to jump to unplug PC, because that fan aint gonna last for more than a minute at that speed.
 
What you can do:
  1. Grab the driver from NVIDIA or AMD, depending on the GPU manufacturer
  2. Grab DDU
  3. Unplug the computer from the internet (this is to prevent Windows from trying to install drivers from Microsoft before you install the ones you downloaded)
  4. Reboot the computer to safe mode (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode-in-windows-92c27cff-db89-8644-1ce4-b3e5e56fe234)
  5. Run DDU, have it clean up the graphics drivers
  6. Reboot the computer
  7. Install the graphics drivers
  8. You can plug the computer back to the internet again.
  9. Run a few games or whatever to do a quick sanity check
