All of a sudden everything on my screen is messed up and not showing right, computer reboots and bios is all messed up and would not boot back up. Here are some images of the situation..

Do I need to replace my video card, or is there a test I could do to figure out what the problem is?

Start simple. Swap your video cable.

If that doesn't work, try another monitor.

If that doesn't work, try removing the video card and using onboard graphics (if available).

If none of the above work, then chances are you will need a new video card.

Well...I'd take the simple approach before anything else...uninstall the current video drivers, then reboot and reinstall same. Drivers become damaged all the time.
