If the GPU you are using fits in an expansion slot, try re-seating it in the slot (ie remove it then firmly put it back). Re-seat it with the power off of course.

If no change, try a new signal cable.
I have reseated it before but i am using an adapter from hdmi to vga and displayport to vga ( my gpu is the 1070 which i have 2 monitors plugged into)
Could the adapters have something to do with it, maybe that they are bad quality?

Yes it could certainly be the adapters, anything is possible. Only way to know for sure is to replace them with quality ones (ie don't go for the cheapest).
Personally I don't like using monitor port adapters --- I prefer to buy a compatible monitor so no adapters are required.
