Video Card replacement

I have an Acer Aspire 8930G with a NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT video card that we believe has gone bad. the lptop doesnt power up until we remove the video card. I'd like to find a replacement video card but am unable to find anything as of yet. It doesnt even have to be a direct replacement but rather an equivalent card would be fine. Any sources you can recommend?

Also, just so I am 100% sure that it is the video card that needs replacing....can you suggestion an option for me to test the laptop once the video card has been removed?
