Are you talking about your aspire laptop? If that's the case, the video is built into the motherboard and the only way to replace it is to replace the motherboard. A motherboard, if you could find one, would run around $100 plus it's not an easy thing to replace on a laptop. It could take 2 hours for an experienced tech with the service manual to do it. It would be far cheaper for you to replace the computer plus you'd get a warranty.
