the verdict = bad video card?

Hey, sorry to revive a month+ old post, but I just got struck with this
I popped in a DVD movie and the screen froze. Rebooted the machine and the LCD would light up but remain black for about 20 seconds(fan spins but stops after 20 seconds). If I connect a LCD in the VGA port, I get the same video output(with strange quotes all over the screen - or I get the low, washed out colors on Safe mode).
I have a m9750 with 1 7950 GTX, does this mean my video card is bad and I should replace it?
So to those who fixed it, it was definilely the video card??
I saw that a couple of others had a similar problem and I wanted to know if the video card fixed the problems each and every time... Sorry for making people repeat themselves, but with the parts hard to come by and being expensive, I'd like to increase my chances of success on this expensive trial-and-error.
Thanks in advance!
To those who had this happen to them - did you guys experience any telltale signs? Maybe graphical artifacts during full screen games/DVD playback?
