Is there any possibility of having disconnected the video output cable from the dedicated graphics card when going to clean it and connecting it back to the motherboard output? It would make the PC to use the integrated graphics cards and hence making performance noticeably worse even in games with basic graphics like LOL.

Where would that be located on the motherboard sorry pretty new to dealing with computers, @Phazoner
MoBo's video outputs (HDMI, DVI, DP, VGA) are the ones packed in the same vertical metallic plate which reunites many other ports, like USBs, Audio outputs, etc. The Graphics card is perpendicularlly plugged to the MoBo so its ports (only video outputs) are visible in another horizontal metallic plate.

Another update, my driver for my gpu isn't working. I have Nvidia geforce experience and it is telling me to reboot my system and try launching it again.
