I need more suggestions please!
This remark leads me to believe that the GFX chip or card is overheating and needs time to cool down ot operate correctly. If youleft it alone for 2 hours and it booted fine but if you try and try and try to boot from a state where it has run before it doesnt work.
This leads me to think overheating somewhere along the way. Use a canned of compressed air and blow out all the vents. Use a cooling pad to help keep the temp down. See if that helps it at all.
