The video card is replaceable and is relatively simple for those comfortable with laptop disassembly.

Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

It does say that it's the "video board." It looks like it's replaceable, so if you can find a replacement card then it should be possible. Unless you are very comfortable following the guide starting at:

Sorry but you can't replace the video card in those laptops as they are integrated into the laptop. I can't for sure say that it's your motherboard as it could be other parts of your video components in the laptop. You might try seeing if it will work with an external monitor hooked up to it. If so, it probably is not the motherboard but one of the other video related parts.
If it turns out to be the motherboard, it's usually pretty expensive to fix (unless it's under warranty) and might not be worth the cost to have it repaired considering the cost of new laptops these days.
Hope that helps,
