Well the card is not dead because you do have picture. It actually could be a number of things...not enough power to the card, actually could be a ram problem and not even a graphics card issue at all, defective graphics card. Since you do still have it on warrenty i would say call up ATI and talk to them and try to get a new card out of the deal. Since your pressed for time it would be difficult to try and figure out what is causing the problem. There are a lot of issues that could cause graphic lockups like that. I had a similar issue a few years back and it was actually caused when the computer was going to use memory on the 3rd stick of ram, there was conflict and it was locking everything up. But i would try and go for the new card i mean you do still have the warrenty they cant say $hit. Sorry for the weak response and sending you to the evil phone tech support.
