@Sandria A. S. Your laptop is 10 years old so is like a grandfather in computer years. I really depends on what the repair shop is going to charge you for the repair. What if they replace the GPU and that does not fix it and the problem is the mainboard or the CPU, etc., etc.? The tech could be correct and it is just the GPU. He may have done repairs like this before. He would have checked voltage levels, etc. with his equipment. I am not there so can't really answer that question. The GPU could short-out power circuits on the mainboard. It would probably be cheaper to buy a working used laptop, preferably locally with a limited warranty of some kind. The repair shop may have one. I am always happy share my time to help others and I wish you good luck.
