Default Laptop video problems

So out of nowhere today, my laptop display is all jacked up.

Basically, the colors get distorted, and the screen starts flickering like a VHS tape that's about to get wrecked.

Is this a hardware / video card issue?

It seems to be popping in and out. I.E. through the time it took to post this, it's flickering, messed up, and then "popped" back to normal, and started to distort again.

I believe that my laptop has a removable / replaceable video card, so hopefully I can just replace that instead of the whole laptop if that is the issue. But anyone have any idea what that might be?

I understand if my post is kind of vague, let me know if I need to give any additional details.
