Hi, when i start my macbook, a lot of small video artifacts appears, like striped rectangles... Then the Apple logo disappear and the screen turns grey, without rectangles.... But os doesn't start.

What should i try to' fix the problem? Is that a video card related problem??

Graphics card failure. Try to run Apple Hardware Test from discs packaged with your MBP.
