Hi warrior_hamed,

We do not recommend to our customer to just replace the graphics card chip on the motherboard because when it was not done properly it may cause further damage on the laptop. Also, it may cause electrical short circuit that may cause fire. That is also the reason the technician are unable to replace just the chip.

Regards,
