I think these forums need a tiny bit more information.
- You're saying it is not working: Is it not booting up, do you get any kind of error symbol or message?
- What do you want to disable? The GPU, the Mac itself?

The 2012 Mac mini didn't have Radeon HD 6630M. That was the 2011 model...

Your options seems to be:

1. Reflow the chip (temporary fix - You cannot do that yourself and it will mostly work for some months and that is, maybe a year)

2. Replace logic board (buy second hand) -> it can fail again

3. Buy a new computer (most expensive)

You can try do disable the Radeon and use the Intel HD 3000.
