Sorry guy :-{

If your video RAM is failing then the logic board will need to serviced by someone with micro soldering skills where they can replace the bad chip or you'll need a new logic board.

The larger SMT chips Apple uses requires quite a bit of skill and the proper tools to replace, this is beyond what I even try to do.
