But it sounds like it is a video chip issue from overheating. I have seen this several times and have done a chip reflow on one and it worked.
The fix is only temporary. Since the design is at fault. The fan and heatsink can not wick enough of the heat away from the chips and the solder joints/balls melt and the chip lifts slightly and loses contact with the circuit.
If you are willing to do the work yourself there are instructions all over the internet search for video chip reflow. If you are not then there are some places that will do it for you for a price of around $100us on up.
Obviously if system is under any warrenty use that.

Good Luck
Dave

Had the same issue with exactly the same laptop. Turned out to be an empty CR2032 Easy fix but wasn't the 1st thing that came to mind

Mmmm..... I answered you from the top of my head but after checking my notes I found out that it was another Toshiba model I had in mind. I had another issue with your specific model (bad hdd). Sorry, I thought I was certain...

Anyways, the fix might still be legit. You'll find a maintenance manual here.
Hope this helps.
