Question about HP Pavilion dv2210us Notebook
No...fortunately your graphics card is fine.
The wiring for the screen connecting it to the keyboard side of the laptop chassis is routed through the spacing near the hinges that fasten the screen to the keyboard. So every time you open or close the laptop those wires are allowed to move and eventually the connector gets a little loose. You can remove the speaker grill and get access to the screen wiring connector. The grill simply snaps into place and can be pried open from the side with a flat head screwdriver or even just your fingers. Beneath it look for a bundle of wires wrapped in a sheath coming from behind the laptop screen and connecting near a speaker. It may not be firmly connected...have the computer powered on while pushing down on the connector on each end and look for the picture problem to resolve. If that does not work, begin disassembling the screen by removing the small tabs around the screen...the screws are behind them. Once the screws are removed, separate the screen from the laptop lid and behind it you will see other end of the wiring you inspected earlier. Secure that end as well. You will also see that around the perimeter of the screen assembly is a metal band and some metal appendage like fingers or tabs...I'm not repair professional but I do believe these are for purposes of grounding and lose firm connection over time of handling the laptop and help HP to get you to give them the call they've been expecting so they can hope for more of your money. Well skip that and make sure the tabs aren't bent from taking it apart and reassemble the screen. Lightly tighten in each screw alternating diagonally then give them a final snug fit. Then snap the grill cover/hot button assembly back into place. Hope that helps.
