HP laptops are legendary for this, there was a class-action lawsuit, but the time has expired on that. The long-term fix is a new motherboard. I have fixed a couple of these by re-flowing the GPU solder connections with heat gun. (there are YouTube videos about how to do this). There are also companies who can repair the motherboard for $75 on eBay.
