Hi. I have a 17'' HP 8710p which has a good graphics cardbut the resolution is 1440 x 900 Max. It is VGA but had I have had the other SVGA or WXGA (something like that) then I would get a better resoltuion with tiny crisp fonts and more screen viewing. I do have an old broken HP laptop - an HP Presario 1500 which also has a good graphics card but that screen was 15.4'' and it had a way higher resolution (somewhere like 1680 x 1400..cant remember).. Would it help if I used that old graphics card in my new pc to get a higher resolution???

Re: Laptop Screen Resolution / Graphics Card
Your graphics card is on board meaning that it is attached to the motherboard in a way that you cannot detach it.....the wsxga version of the hp 8710p is able to get a higher resolution but yours unfortunately will not go beyond 1440 times 900

Assuming the graphics drivers are up to date and assuming you have a high resolution set in the display on the control panel, the screen may be damaged or the VGA cable damaged. In extreme cases the onboard chip may be loosning from the motherboard. You cannot install an external graphics card on this laptop. I would check the above and see if the existing setup can be repaired economically
Hi, This is definitely a display issue ,going black could be the inverter or cable, as you are getting vertical line, it seems you need to change the display.It seems the heat produced by the video card in your system is too high if the cooling is not enough it might give you this problem due to over heating.Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105
C for nvida GEFORCE GT 120M.
The screen resolution
for your laptop is WXGA++(1600 x 900) which is 17",for this kind of display I would say display nothing less than 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 is high defination (HD) display.
The GRAPHICS card you have in the system it has
Maximum Digital Resolution 2560x1600
Maximum VGA Resolution 2048x1536
Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105
Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 50
Try to decrease the hardware acceleration of the video card and check how it works.Other wise replace the display.
Your graphics card on that should push that resolution so I would probably lean toward the tv. Try changing the aspect resolution or (zoom button) on the remote to change the way the screen is delivered. As long as the resolution on the laptop is a widescreen resolution and the same for the television. Make sure in your tv settings, that the aspect is set at 16:9.
If that is the max your current video card will do then your kinda hooped. Most video cards are part of the laptop motherboard and can't be changed out without changing the motherboard..... which means a new laptop.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution to 1028X768.
If you cannot change the screen resolution and the graphics adapter is set to generic VGA then download the Windows 98 graphic driver for your model laptop from the Compaq/HP WEB site and change the screen resolution. Use this link to download the drivers :- http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
The simplest way is this..
Right Click on Desktop > Properties > Settings Tab > Here you will see all the supported Resolutions (If you got the updated Driver).
Note: Nx6310 supports 1024x768 max, if you are still on it, and want more, its not possible.
Most laptop PCs include external video outputs, primarily VGA (Video Graphics
Array), with an increasing number of devices offering DVI (Digital Visual
Interface), or HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) support.
When your laptop PC's built-in display isn't working properly, you can
quickly and easily determine if the problem relates to the built-in graphics
circuitry or to the display itself by plugging in an external monitor. If the
external monitor lights up and things work as they should, the built-in
display is at fault. If the external monitor also fails to work, it's likely
that your laptop PC graphics circuitry has failed. Because this can involve
replacing a standalone graphics module or the system board inside the laptop,
depending on the make and model of your computer, you need to perform a
cost-benefit analysis on making repairs or replacing your laptop PC.
the hp dv8380us has an issue with the nvidia 7600 go graphics chip when the manufactured this laptop they didn't use the proper heat sink and heat sink compound so it causes the graphics chip to over heat. and when it over heats it causes errors as you explained. i also have a hp dv8380us and have the same issues and haven't found a fix. mine also shows the picture 4 times as big as the lcd so i can only see 1 fourth of the picture i can see it fine if i hook it up through the vga port though. hope this explains your problem.
