    Recently got a CLEVO P870TM1 with broken LCD and some other issues and I have been trying to fix it.

    Specs:
    - i7 8700k
    - GTX 1080 x2
    - 64 GB DDR4 2400MHz
    - Samsung EVO 2 TB SSD M.2

    Issues:
    - LCD is broken
    - CPU/GPU FAN does not spin
    - Most screws are missing
    - Trouble to turn ON

    Whenever i try to turn it on it lights up the keyboard and then restarts itself and keeps doing this (reboot loop). It powered on once and made it all the way to Windows desktop (I had it connected to an external LCD with an HDMI cable) but after a few minutes it started doing a *beep* sound so I turned it off and haven't been able to turn it on successfully again.
    What could this be, is it related to the CPU FAN not working?, I'm using only one power adapter (it came with 2 330w adapter).

    Cpu rpm being wrong will cause the ECU to panic.

    You need 2 psu's and most likely it tries to power the LCD and since it's broken, it cant power it up. Try reset the CMOS physically and see if it boots and one of the fans not working it will cause EC panics which will shut it down

    Thanks both. I removed 2 sticks of ram (the ones installed on the back, left the ones installed under the keyboard) and was able to turn on successfully (although it won't output video through HDMI) again but it keeps doing the beep after a few minutes so I turned it off, seems it's an overheating issue as you said. Also I noticed the fans on both GPUs wont spin too apparently (maybe this is because it wont boot correctly?, idk.).
    I read somewhere I could use it with only one power adapter but it would be running at lower frequency (both CPU and GPUs), I don't know if this is true. Also tried turning it on with both power adapters and it turned on successfully as above.

    Both questions are true. The overheating is due to the broken fan and you will run the cpu and gpu as such lower clocks that you won't be able to play anything correctly

    For the moment I just want to turn it on to see what other things are broken. Can i remove both GPUs and try to turn it on the IGP?, this might confirm if they're working I guess.

    iGPU is physically disabled so you can't boot into it

    Man what a beast if you can get it running. i’m so jealous. The cooling this machine is capable of is quite nice. And those (2) GTX1080’s are stout.

    LCD’s are cheap and so are replacement fans, and screws.

    Are you planning on keeping this machine?

    Tbh I don't know yet, it was a gift so I don't mind doing some cash with it since I don't need that much power for my work/school. But first I want to figure out what works and what not so I can decide if I fix it or sell it.

    I'm fairly new to laptops (I've always been a desktop guy) so any help or test I can make to test it properly is appreciated.
