Is my psu or motherboard failing?

Today all of sudden my pc did not boot up. When I pressed power button, motherboard light was going on, CPU fans were running but pc was not booting up. USB peripherals were also not getting powered.

I tried to remove the GPU and tried to boot it. It didn't start. Same motherboard light was going on, CPU fans were running but no boot.

I tried to remove one ram, and now it started to boot up and I was able to login to windows

I re seated the ram and booted again, it was working.

I re seated the GPU and booted again, it was working. But when I connect GPU to monitor using display port it is not working, but if I use HDMI it is working. Can display port on monitor or graphic card fail. Did the cable fail?

Currently I am using pc with HDMI. I just wanted to know, if I can check if PSU if failing. Or is this something should I ignore?

Recently I bought a new keyboard. Can a keyboard cause a issue like this?

Display signal cables like hdmi, vga, dp, dvi etc. usually don't easily fail but they can as well the ports on the monitor and graphic card. Hope you are using a good branded dp cable.

First check the graphic card. Also do mention the model of psu you have ?
