Macbook Pro - Graphics Issue

My late 2011 MacBook Pro has been giving me display issues. It will give me a split background or vertical stripes. It gets worse when it gets hotter and the fan comes on. The computer runs fine in the background.

MacBook Pro Repair Extension Program for Video Issues - Apple Support

I'm aware of this program but sure enough, it ended a month ago and I've just started to have problems in the last couple of weeks.

Also, I thought it was for AMD graphics cards and mine has the Intel HD 3000.

So my question is, can I just replace the video card or do I have to replace the entire logic board? Any idea on what this is going to cost me? Thanks in advance.

Contact your closest Apple Store service/tech if you have one close by, or contact Apple Customer Support and check anyway. They just might cover things. Maybe…
