Question about HP Pavilion dv9700t Notebook PC
30 seconds after windows fully boots the picture turns into a black screen with random colored lines/blocks. I have tried to boot it multiple times with the same result. Is the video out and if so does that mean that the whole motherboard will need to be replaced? The video card is 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS. I believe this is integrated video correct? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
Well the first thing I would try is to hook the computer up to an external monitor to check and see if the video controller itself is causing the problem.... If the same thing happens on the external monitor, then it's the controller hardware or the driver.... so to rule out the driver, download a different version of the driver for that card and install it. If the same thing still happens, then you should suspect the card itself, and yes, on a laptop the video card is integrated on the motherboard, so if it needs replacing, then you must swap the whole board. Hope this helps!
