Replace broken on-board graphic card on laptop with an external unit?

My laptop' s graphic card is damaged. The engineer told me that is on-board and i should replace the whole motherboard to make the screen work, but its better to buy a new laptop.
Is there any case to use the computer if i plug an external graphic card and a screen?

usb adapter can be used, there are many such as:

this one also has connector adapters to different monitors.
note that this is independent video adapter (has nothing to do with your onboard video card) but due to USB2 bandwidth limitations, it may not work well for fast changing content (high-res videos or games)

one CAN only replace busted onboard chip and this will cost you some $150 if you can find a specialized repair shop near you (they need hot air rework tools to work with BGA and this is NOT job for your geek squad dude who only knows how to swap HDD). this is what it costed me to replace one on my 15" Dell workstation (I really like the 1920x1200 resolution, can't get that today, the best is 1920x1080). i could have done it myself but it was not worth it because i don't deal with PC components and don't get discounts on those chips.

to replace a motherboard is not hard but it will cost anywhere $350-600 unless covered by warranty. for that money you can get another machine (and probably better one).
