Can anyone help me try to change the damaged ram but that didn't change anything..:(

Is this related to something else or something?

The good news is that it about the right time for a new graphics card. If you can wait till the end of the year, you can get the brand new generation.

to change the ram youre gonna need a heatgun or a soldering/reballing/reflow station. Youre also gonna need some ram chips - these you can either get from a doner card i.e. a dead/faulty card off ebay that can be used for spare parts or new stock from sites like aliexpress but you run a slight risk with them chips being fake.

Remove the cooler read off the numbers that printed on the ram chips and start searching for replacements.

whether or not its worth the money, time and effort to swap the chips and get the card working again - probably not but thats down to you to decide

Heres a rough guide -- this guy does it on a 640 but the same method still should work on your 760

In order to change those memory chips, you should contact a professional repair shop.
But since that repair won't be cheap, i would recommend you to start look for a new card.
