This model had a recall on it for a while on the GPU.

I have one on my bench right now that I’ll have back together hopefully by Monday.  I tried reflowing the GPU.  This has worked for me about 70% of the time.

I’m also pursuing GPU replacement alternatives as the high demand for the replacement card has pushed prices up.
