    Try some presure on the GPU spot,If this brings your screen back then the GPU might work again with some copper shims under the heatsink.(we are talking about a laptop? )

    most of times its bad ram. or video chip coming loose.. might need reflow (youtube it) if its not ram. (laptop model ??)

    the problem with shims is it puts too much preassure and makes the solder balls touch each other when it melts from heat.

    yep you should try the reflow method maybe even to heat it in the oven while protected with some aluminium foil everything but the vga chip
