Some graphics are chips are soldered onto the motherboard. These are generally not replaceable by the home user.

Some are modules that plug into the board. These can be easily replaced.

You can determine this by finding a pdf copy of your laptops Service Manual online (if there is one). If it is a replaceable component there will be instructions in the manual.
You can also make a reasonable guess by looking at the laptop's specs on the manufacturer's website. If they offer more than one graphics engine for the same laptop it is most likely a replaceable module.

That said, try a reset:
Turn off > Remove power supply > remove laptop battery > press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds.
Put everything back together and boot.
