    Not a user replaceable part, take it it an Apple Store, be prepared for an expense, this is a new logic board entirely.

    You replace the whole logic board. Generally an expensive repair if you are out of warranty. Can cost US $700 or more. However, users have reported using Apple's "Flat Rate Repair". Cost is reported to be around US $300. Not documented. Ask at an Apple store.

    Please post the model year of your Mac. There are some that have faulty GPUs in them. Without that info we really can give you the correct advice.

    Simply put, it can be repaired, but not for free, take it to the Store again to find out 'how much'
