Default Could one, or successive, power outages do this...?

Yo whats up people?
I booted my computer up. But the monitor did not get a signal.
I have a flat screen that uses the white non-pin plug (circa 2006 maybe). I later tried my old monitor that uses the old school straight up blue pin to pin. The old school gets a signal, however it's all crazy random patterns that lead to an eventual NO SIGNAL.

Could a quick power outage (on to off (computer on standby for a bit)) fry a video card?
Is it the video card causing said problems?

Yes it is the video card. It is done for and needs to be replaced.
