  • You haven't showed that the physical ports themselves are the problem. As Harrymc notes below, the problem is more likely the integrated graphics chip itself, which cannot be removed in any sort of reasonable way. – music2myear Jan 14 at 18:17

It seems like your video adapter is dead.

The HP Pavilion a6745f has as video adapter the Integrated graphics using ATI Radeon™ HD 3200.

Unfortunately, integrated graphics adapters are soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced except by a specialist.

I would really suggest replacing the motherboard (or the computer).
