Windows 7 Retail build 7600 32bit
DV6000 GFX Error

Hi everyone, im new here and I hope you can help me .

Ive got an HP DV6000 Laptop with Nvidia GFX and a Turion 64 CPU. I'm running Windows 7 retail build 7600 32bit.

As im sure many people will be aware, the DV6000/DV9000 series Laptops have a serious design flaw in the GFX chip, which causes a variety of errors, culminating in a black screen .

I can confirm that it is not this error, as this board has suffered from this aliment and been replaced through HP with a board that is free from the design flaw.

This Laptop had installed Windows Vista Premium its run flawlessly on this OS, but as I had a disk come my way I thought I would install 7.

The error is that when you transition between resolutions with the UAC and a few other programs the Laptop just stops for about 20 seconds with a black screen. I did initially think its the DV6000 playing up again but I re-installed Vista and this issue is no more.
It has 7 again now but with this issue. I have absolutely no idea what this problem could be, Ive tried different Nvidia GFX drivers.
I did have a co-processor item listed in the device manager as having no driver installed but that was rectified with an nvidia chipset driver.

If anyone has encountered this issue i would appreciate a response and thankyou for reading this Post
