I looks like a kind of epidemic if I count the issues with laptop GPU's on this forum alone.

Perhaps the sunspots have something to do with it....

Do you have anything displayed during power-on? a logo some text?
If not I'm afraid it's hardware related.
Do you still have warranty on this item?

Hi Randy, as Sluc states, this seems a common problem.

Problem is many laptop owners are unaware laptops require servicing every so often by removing any dust and fluff build up.

If not done, overheating can occur and a component or components may be cooked causing this problem.

Furthermore , if used as a laptop on one's lap, or other soft surface, this can block the cooling vent(s) - not wise!

When you tried the external monitor, did you then press and hold the FN key, and then press once the EXTERNAL MONITOR function key?

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
