thanks for the response to my problem. I have contacted HP but they are not interested because the laptops are no longer warranted. We have had a response from the retailer and they will come and take a look at it but are making no promises but fingers crossed they may do a foc repair.

HP will not cover the repair if guaranty is expired.
Video card on your laptop is integrated on motherboard, and the repairman must replace the whole motherboard to fix it.
I quote : "Only half the screen works the rest is justa grey colouring." that is more likely a problem with the ribbon cable, connecting LCD, or with LCD screen itself, in some case , as said by the repairman , it can be the video card.
if the repairman did not open and inspected the laptop LCD display , connector and cables, then the problem it is probably the ribbon cable or the LCD panel.
The technician mentioned the motherboard, because that is the most expensive repair service, so that he can cover his back.
Ask a quote to a different technician, see if this can give you different quotes for all possible faults.
The possibilities are:
1 Replace ribbon cable
2 Replace LCD display
3 Replace motherboard.

It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).
Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).
If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.
Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.
