faulty graphics card?

total newb to this comm, but I've had a Macbook (not pro) since 2007 and have had problems on and off with the screen going blank randomly. I've tried the obvious things - pulling battery out, ctrl+command+power, but still no go. I'm starting to suspect a bad video card (which I've read is soldered to the motherboard)
It's going to the Apple store today, but based on what I'm Googling, it sounds like I'm out of luck. The screen stays black when it sounds like it's booting up, or once on, turns black sporadically. I JUST replaced the hard drive on this thing. Any other thoughts?
