Toshiba Tecra 8200



Hi, Iím having problems with laptop its Toshiba Tecra 8200; sometimes it turns on fine other times it turns on but freezes at windows logo and most of the time it turns on with black screen, I have tried many things to sort it out with no success, re-install windows, changed RAM, checked the CPU and re-apply thermal past, updated the Bios, took it apart and put it back together.
Iím beginning to think its the graphics card, what do you think?

Does it have a Nvidia GPU? If so that could be the most likely suspect as they had a massive batch of faulty GPUs from 2007-2009 (Google Underfill + Nvidia).

Thanks for that, I will have a go at heating up the graphics chip and see if that helps, as it is itís useless to me, will let you know it goes.
