Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook
I have a HP dv8125nr laptop and something has caused the basic color pallet to change. I appear to have red & white, strips where I should have a solid background color. It also comes in on the internet windows. The window I'm typing in now has the same background.
I have attempted to change the setting in the control panel on the display settings, but have not solved the problem.
can anyone tell me how to restore the basic widows xp color palet.
I have also tried to restore the system to a date prior to the problem, but it does not clear this problem.
If you have a video card mounted in a PCI or AGP slot, take that
out, blast the slot and the connector on the video card with compressed
air, and put it back in.
If you're using motherboard-integrated graphics, do the same thing as above to all of your memory (RAM) modules. Also run memtest86 from a bootable floppy or CD. If it comes up with even just one error, you'll need to replace some RAM. Integrated graphics use system RAM as video memory, so faulty memory can cause the display 'artifacts'.

Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows
mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you
start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic
device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can
use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try
starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in
your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the
cause of the problem.
If your display works in safe mode then you have a video driver issue or virus or software issue.
