I’m always torn when someone tries to get one of these going. This series has its issues, I had two! One 15” & 17”

This is the series had the famous GPU failure: [|Bad NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT chips]. There’s really nothing you can do to fix this anymore as the good chips have long since be used up and anything you find today is a salvaged chip which just won’t hold up very long. That also included replacement logic boards which is what you likely need here.

Bottom line shed a tear and look for a newer Unibody model .
