I built this PC about four years ago, with an x470 gaming pro, an MSI Nvidia 1060 gtx 6gb and Ryzen 7. I recently had terrible trouble when I updated to windows 11, so many things went wrong I won't detail them all, but in the end I clean installed windows 10 pro again and all seemed good once again. Until I put the PC to sleep (or so I thought) returned in the morning to find all the lights on but no monitor signal (I have 3 monitors). I tried removing the all the components (graphics card, wifi card), unplugging HDs, using only one stick of ram in each of the 4 slots. I tried ram from another computer, still nothing. I tried an alternative PSU, still nothing. I am left thinking the board must have died somehow, but not sure if there are other tests? I have fans, lights etc, but no signal to monitors. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Your CPU doesn't have an integrated graphics chip built in.....so you won't get any video out, and the computer won't detect any GPU.
Do you have another computer or another GPU to test? Could you put the 1060 into another computer and see if it works fine there?
Can you try another GPU in your computer and see if it works fine?

Also try GPU in a different PCIE slot you seem to have enough room to move it down to second one
