Sounds like the screen resolution has been changed. Right click on the desktop goto Properties -> Settings and slide the Screen Resolution slider to 1024 x 768 then click on Apply. If that works you should see all your icons as you did before, The resolution can be adjusted higher if its more suitable for you. Most 17inch laptops work between 1024 x 768 and 1152 x 864. If that doesn't work let us know! :)

when you say you've reset the drivers, what do you mean?
you may need to download and install a new driver for your display adapter as the installed driver may have become corrupted.

That sounds like a problem with your GPU, this is very common with Nvidia graphics cards when built onto motherboards for mobile devices. First contact HP to see if you have any warranty with them, if not then you can either look for a company that specialises in board repair in your area or if you are brave try a DIY fix. Search 'motherboard DIY reflow' on google or youtube to see an example. Hope this helps,

Start by logging on as the Administrator so you can check the Task Manager and find out what Application or Process is monopolizing the system.

If the system is still unresponsive boot into Safe Mode. (Press F8 before the Windows startup screen appears.) If everything is fine in Safe Mode type MSCONFIG at the Command Prompt and start disabling features until you find the culprit.

Last resort, buy or borrow an external USB CD/DVD drive and use it to reinstall Windows.

Important: Reinstalling will ERASE the hard drive.

Replace CMOS battery


First you need to take the cover off your laptop and locate the cmos battery which looks like an oversize battery watch. With everything unplugged it just pulls out, note which side of the battery goes however. Place the new one in put everything back together and power the computer up. When it powers up it will finally get to the screen that says press "F1" for setup or "F2" to continue. Press F1 and you will get to your set up screen. You can go through each screen and select F5 which is the default factory settings or scoll across the top to the last screen which will give you the option of resetting all the settings to factory default with just pressing one of the F keys once only. Once you do that, just shutdown your computer and restart and it will start as normal. It may go through the F1 and F2 screen one more time but just press F2 and continue. After you log off the next time all your changes should be good. Let me know if I can help you in any other way.

Connecting lap tops to monitors...


Try connecting a mouse and keyboard to the laptop and then start it with the top closed. Not sure if this will work on your model, but it works on a lot of laptops. This should force the PC to use your external monitor as the primary one.

Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!
