if windows detected the card and reinstalled the drivers the odds are the card is ok (not always tho). last time i had this an over the top reinstall of windows fixed it.

you could pull the card out and put it in another pc to test it.

have you noticed anything else werid eg clock suddenly being way out ? sometimes bios gets a glitch in it (sometimes flat battery) and throws the settings all out and causes a few werid things.
