New Toshiba 17" functions properly until it has

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the graphics card inside the machine is over heating , i would check that all vents on the laptop are clear and unblocked , but if you have used this continually in this state then i doubt you will be able to repair it, as heating it up and then letting it cool down all the time will have done it no favours at all. The graphics gpu cannot be replaced so if cleaning the vents makes no significant impact then your laptop will need to be replaced

I have seen this on quite a few Mits's as they are getting to that age. This is usually related to bad caps in the signal path. I could go into more detail if I knew the exact Model Number (it will start with WS or VS) Example VS-60609. But the caps are usually near the 5v regulators.
