Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
You might want to try to go into Safe Mode.
Basically, reboot the computer and press F8 repeatedly till a DOS-like screen appears. Hopefully you'll be greeted by several options, the top (or third option in Windows 7) will be to boot into Safe Mode.
Obviously Safe Mode is our plan of attack. What this will do is bypass all drivers (including the pesky "new" driver that got loaded onto your system).
Once booted you'll want to Hold down the Windows key (on your keyboard) then hit the Pause/Break key. This will open your system window (this is where you'll see what version Windows your running and some of your system components installed).
What you want to do is left click the mouse (unless you remapped your mouse for a left-hander, then it would be right click) on the Device Manger link at the top Left hand corner of that window.
Once in there you'll want to select your video card (it'll be inside Display Adapters) in the drop down menu and double click on it. This will bring up the properties for your video card.
Once in there you'll want to select "Driver", then hit the "Roll Back Driver" button...
Now this SHOULD remedy the situation by re-installing the older driver and giving your computer back to you. I say 'should' because I haven't run into a situation where the driver didn't roll back because your in Safe Mode; meaning, that some functions are shut off when in Safe Mode... But I haven't seen this happen for drivers (or at least don't remember it ever having happened).
Reboot and you should be all better.
Hope this helped...
