Clean the dust in the motherboard. You can either use a compressed air can or a mini blower. If you've had this problem before, there is a good chance that the cable is faulty.

I have faced this problem of vertical lines coming up on the screen and then sudden restart. This could be a sign of gpu failure. No problem with the display.

Make sure your BIOS and display drivers are up to date.

Grab yourself Hairdryer, open up the cover from your laptop, remove the gpu's heatsink, blast the hell out of the Hairdryer (point it towards the GPU die), let it sit to cool down, screw everything back together and there you go. That's the way I've fixed my desktop's GPU.
