**Asking price: 30+actual shipping
Condition: this was my brother's laptop bought new some 8 years ago it's a Athlon II dual-core 2.2ghz more on this link, the specs from the manual. it comes with 4GB 2gbx2 by the label they are pc10600 drr3 it doesn't come with it's original SSD drive. That's the only thing missing. Treated nicely.
I bought a repaired motherboard for it from ebay same model and such, and it worked, for 30 minutes before shutting down too. It could be an issue with such batch of mobos for this model. I paid around 50 dollars for the swaped model. 6 months ago. I think I have the original too if you're interested.
The laptop is fully assembled and it has a good battery. it comes with a wireless internal card. no problems with the keyboard. same for the monitor. I don't know about any dead pixels I can't test it.

Check video and photos.

For anyone wondering what the problem could be: I just had one very similar come to me with about the exact same issue. This is what I found:

Opened up the bottom of the laptop and noticed that the CPU/GPU heatsink was oddly cockeyed. Started pulling it, and found that one of the threaded nuts that are permanently mounted to the motherboard had let go and was causing the system to shut down due to overheating.

My solution (and COULD NOT warranty anything) was that I pulled said nut from the screw and superglued it back into the motherboard. I let it sit for a couple of days and put the system back together. I gave the system back to the owner a little over a week ago and so far it hasn't let go.

Don't know if this is the same problem with this system but it's sure something to consider if anyone is interested in a cheap laptop for a child or someone else that can't afford high end.

I wonder if an Epoxy would be better.

I was thinking Either power related or heat

It shows the same black screen after a cold turn on could it still be overheating?

See if you get display on a external monitor and don't enable the igp
