Sounds like it may have overheated and fried a chip?
Were you using it on a desk or on something that could block the fan vents?

No it had good air circulation. I was told that the 17 inch screens don't have a long life. This one was only 3 1/2 yrs old.Apparently the driver for this screen is worth about 250.00 so was going to look on ebay but need to know the exact item to look for. Maybe find one for less and get this laptop fixed.
