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.

What is the reason of very slow speed of laptop hp 6710b intel core 2 duo


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

I just repaired my notebook and found that graphic card installed is Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family, i thought it had Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. has it been changed or it is...


It may be listed differently because it would use the system memory to support the integrated graphics.
Time to update drivers also.

It is an integrated graphics card on the DV4.

Please check the games' compatibility before you proceed installing. Otherwise your computer may face severe damage. There might be hardware conflict so I would suggest you to uninstall it before you go further. You can try it later after you've read the compatibility notes. Good luck

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
