HP Pavilion dv2700 & Artifacting

HP Pavilion dv2700 laptop with clear artifacting before POST -> Unable to boot even into BIOS to see if any settings incorrect. Problem is obviously either screen or GPU related. I read about the 'heat treatment' of these laptops to 'seal' the GPU onto the card properly, yet since it has pretty much already overheated, wondering if there is anyway to fix the GPU without an complete mobo replacement. I have quite a lot of computer experience and seeing if anyone else has any ideas.
Artifacting type is horizontal & vertical bands of colour, with a large section black down the centre. Holding down a button for long enough results in a continuous BIOS beep.

Ultimately, this is a simple question -> is the laptop screwed or is there a way to fix this HP wreck?

Hi I've got a hp pavilion dv9000 and i've completely forgotten the password i set. I really dont know what to do. I only had one user account so I can't even get into the system and change the settings or...


If this a Vista machine then you will need to download a boot disk and burn it to a CD.
I recommend Active@ Boot Disk as with this disk you will be able to change the password and gain access to the machine.
The file comes in an iso format which is a disk image so you will need a computer which has burning software installed, like Nero for example.
Once burned to a CD pop the disk in the laptop which has the password and restart it. From there you have to get the machine to boot from CD, you can do this by going into the BIOS or pressing F12 as laptop starts up. Let the boot CD load and then you can change the password.

Get Active@ Boot CD here >>>>>>>>>

Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help or advice.
