quick way is to put it into another working computer and see if it works there. if it doesn't it's probably broken

I've been thinking about disabling my onboard graphics card and reinstalling my videocard... yet what if my videocard is really busted.... how do i reinstall my onboard graphics card...?

you would disable this in the bios. you would want to uninstall all of the drivers/software for the expansion card, then reinstall all of that software then disable the onboard graphics in bios. if the expansion card is busted simply remove the card, then remove the CMOS battery (looks like a watch battery) from the motherboard with the power cord unplugged, then put the battery back in and boot. this will re-enable your onboard card
