Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
I have a HP Pavilion dv1330. Over the last couple of days I have had vertical panels (blocks) on the screen measuring about 4 cms wide. about 3.5cm was white and about 0.5cm was red. There were about 5 vertical panels across the screen. Each panel had horizontal lines on it.
The laptop wouldnt let me shut down by control alt del or even by turning off the button, so I had to remove the battery.
I recall it happened in screen saver mode.
Seems OK at the moment though.
If it goes away after a reboot it is very likely a video driver or video software layer problem. If it only does it coming off screen saver mode, sounds like your screen saver has become corrupt - try another or reinstall the one you are using. Otherwise, try to reinstall new drivers for the video card, and update the to latest version of DirectX.
