Question about Computers & Internet
Bad video card. You will need to replace your video card and everything will work just fine. If you have a warranty then I would send it to HP. If it is not under warranty then I would go to newegg.com and get it from there with a great price.

What are the Troubleshooting steps you have tried?
Have you tried Microsoft website?
Do you have the Blinking Cursor?
Access the link below and try to perform a starup repair, as it might help us to fix the issue.
If the issue persists after performing the startup repair, try to perform a system restore.

2. Restart the computer. To do this, click Start , click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart .
Note If you cannot restart the computer by using this method, use the power button to turn off the computer. Then, turn the computer back on.

4. Click Repair your computer.
5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options menu, click System Restore.

The problem is that your nVidia GPU overheated and "floated". The short solution is that you will need to replace the motherboard.
Depending on your skill you have 3 options.
1) Take it in and have it replaced
2) Purchase a NEW motherboard (part number is on a white sticker under the memory module),
and replace it yourself. ( CLICK HERE for service and maintenance manual)
3) Remove the motherbaord and fix it by doing a reflow on the chip. If you want instructions on how to do the reflow, (if you think you are up to the task of dis-assembling your laptop), send a reply and I will instruct. Not only is this method free, except for new heatsink compound, it will be quicker than waiting for a new board to be shipped to you. It can be done in 8 to 10 hours.
Sorry I couldn't give you a quick fix but I am certain this is your problem as I am an expert on this model and have performed the reflow successfully about 80 times.
