Your GPU is going

That's the lines on the screen and possible freezing... It could be "revived" for a while with a reflow, longer with a re-ball, or maybe it's time to get a new box.

The flashing ? means no boot system folder found because you didn't complete an install.

If this answer is acceptable please return and mark it.

Good Luck,
