The VGA screw hole on my ASRock AB350M Pro4 Micro ATX Motherboard ripped out because I didn't unscrew the VGA cable enough, is there anyway to put the screw back in the board or do have to buy a whole new motherboard?

Even if you can't put it back (assuming you actually "ripped" it out), you shouldn't really need the screw.

Your VGA connector is not totally screwed.

Yeah, if the pins are fine it should, the connectors just won't as secure.

Yes. Usually you don't need the screws to maintain a stable connection, unless the problem was on the monitor end and the cable has to run vertically (shouldn't be an issue on the motherboard side).
