Default Problems with video card

Well about a week ago my video card decided to basically crap out on me. When i turn my computer on, in the normal mode, i get this screen

In order to get to where i can even function on this computer, i had to go to the screen where you can go into safe mode or a few others, and i had to use vga mode. I don't know why this works but starting up normally does not. My video card is - EVGA 256-P2-N516 GeForce 7800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards if that helps. I'm not sure if i need a new video card or what.

ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
eVGA Geforce 7800GT
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 8 (7.1)
HITACHI Deskstar 250GB 7200 RPM
OCZ EL Platinum Revision 2 1GB (2 x 512MB)
SONY Black IDE DVD Burner
Antec NEOPOWER 480 ATX 480W

Default Re: Problems with video card

Have you tried to remove the drivers and reinstall them? Have you tried a different video source? Like onboard video or a different card?
