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.

If you're having trouble on display in your monitor,please check the following;

1. Check your CPU if its responding,booting or the power light indicator is running.

The two biggest problems in XP is audio drivers and graphics drivers. From a long experience dealing with all kinds of graphics cards and drivers I would say that the driver you are installing is not correct for OS and your card. Not sure what you are using that makes you think it is but I believe it is not. If you are using a driver scanner software then beware. Your best bet is go to here..

..this will give correct driver. This will probably fix BUT keep in mind that the pc beeping means hardware issue, so0o0oo not having the correct driver will also cause this, but usually not with a graphics card or it's driver. Usually this is mobo, ram, hd, etc.

Problem with my geforce4 mx


Sounds to me like either the card is bad or you have a corrupt driver. If you remove the card will it start? then it is a bad card. If you uninstall driver either through safe mode (hold F8 at powerup before windows starts) or restore to last known working config (also F8). I suggest you go to nvidia website to download your drivers. let me know if you are still stuck, we'll work it out.

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.
