[computer-tech-support: 8512] Faulty display due to Graphics card

Hello people,

My laptop's video card is kaput. Lastly I remember seeing colours on my screen was when it showed horizontal rainbows & ultimately a pale greyscale. So I understand some wiring is dissolved in the high heat emitting chip of my Nvidia 8400G. 
I tried to repair this chipset at a local shop which indeed he forcefully did at the name of diagnosis & was running for another month. But now its blown again!
Also note that the computer boots up normally & launches the welcome screen (though it is not visibe, I can hear the noise & lights).

So guys here is the question. 

1. Can I share the display alone with my TV & continue using the Laptop?
2. I want to finally replace this Graphics. Please suggest what should I buy?

Regarding 1, since my Acer 4520G doesn't have a HDMI port, a vga - vga connection is in my mind. Only worries to me is the apparent display switch without the screen being visible.
