However, I'm not interested in fixing it if I can't sell it at a profit after I do fix it.
Of all the computers I've ever fixed, this is the first time I've seen this issue. Issues are usually software related, which I am a master at.
I'm still confused after searching online if a video chip can sometimes work. I would think they either work all the time or not at all. I will begin ripping this thing apart to carefully look over all soldering connections. The heat of it warming up must be directly related to this issue, because it starts right up every time when it's cold.
