if the onboard vid is just turned off i believe that resetting the bios , shorting the jumpers to do this or whatever and the onboard video will be re enabled but if the onboard vis is broke just get a vheap vid card to go in obvious this teacher dosent game so anything will do realy and then ya done , all ya need to do now is charge them $100 to fix

Try and borrow a graphics card from somewhere and test it first. Theres no point in wasting your money if the mobo is fried. Also try another monitor and cable.
