Video Card keeps system from booting?

Not too long ago I was getting messages about my diplay not being correct (don't remember exactly), then it started locking up. Then it got to where it would not boot up at all. I can't get to a screen that will allow me into safe mode or anything. All I am getting is beeps (Award BIOS), which I think is one long and two short, maybe one long and three short. I looked them up and one is a bad video card and the other is bad memory on the video card.

My question is: Should I replace the card or should it boot with the card removed?

I did remove it and got the same result.

Since the machine won't boot, this is from memory.
AMD 2.2 dual core, XP Pro, 1 gig RAM, 7100GS video card
