Question Graphics Card Isn't Showing Up

I've had my computer for years. Haven't worked on it besides cleaning in a while, and it was running perfectly. For some reason, however, yesterday the graphics card just stopped being detected. The monitor doesn't work when my computer is hooked up to it, but it does work when it's hooked up to the other ports.

Additionally, it isn't detecting my graphics card in the BIOS or device manager.

Haven't changed anything with my computer years, and I would assume if it was a driver issue it would at least read that my graphics card exists.

Shut down..pull power from wall.
Remove the gpu and then reseat it. If the card requires its own power cable, remove and reseat that as well.
Reboot
If still an issue, shut down, and try another power cable to the gpu, if your power supply has one.
If you need more help, please list ALL your hardware.

Okay. I tried different plugs, I tried moving ports, and I tried using the same port. The fans are still moving, but it seems to be a pattern. One fan spins for a second, then the next, then back again.
