It just may, some mobility cards are flaky that way.

Typically, with laptops, it is best to get the graphics card drivers from the laptop manufacturer. The graphics card drivers are more finicky than most because those provided by the laptop manufacturer were designed to provide the best power management for the laptop. Other drivers can cause issues because the laptop is trying to use the power management scheme designed by the vendor developers and the display card drivers taken from the display card manufacturer are not designed for that scheme and interfere with that scheme.

Ah, I understand that. Unfortunetly, after I reinstalled the drivers, I'm still receiving some problems. I'm going to try and reinstall the drivers again, this time with driver sweeper, see if it might help. Attached is a picture when I crashed.

ooo that doesn't look pretty... If you use Driver Sweeper, make sure to create a system restore point first. I have seen Driver Sweeper clean too much on occasion and leave Windows unbootable. It usually does not cause issues, but it is best to exercise caution before using it.

So reinstalling the video card drivers after using driver sweeper didn't seem to help at all.
I really don't see what's going wrong and I'm tempted to reformat again. Crash reports added just incase. Do you guys reccomend that I reformat?

Do you have recovery discs made for the system? If not, see Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Can you please fill in your system specs to make it a little easier to determine what system you have? System Info - See Your System Specs can help in that regard. Fill in your specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread.

I'm leaning more towards a failed GPU then a driver issue.

Wrench97, I agree that it appears more likely that it is a GPU failure based on the image in post #33... Ah, a second edit due to reading the first post of this thread again. Seems I forgot that this does have a dedicated graphics card. Unfortunately, dedicated graphics on a notebook PC still requires sending it in to HP for repairs...

Vimicry, it is up to you whether you want to send in your notebook for repairs/replace the notebook or go through the clean re-install or factory restore.


Sorry for the original misinformation, and then the second set of misinformation needing a second edit. This is why it helps to fill in the system specs. I forgot this was a laptop... I also forgot you have dedicated graphics...

Please fill in your system specs as I asked in my previous post to avoid these complications as you get help in the future.

I also have at times overlooked the spec of a laptop that can at times lead to some very strange replies when working on graphics problems

Yeah, I kind of expected it to be a GPU failure. Sorry for responding so late, but I gave up on this laptop after I restored everything to factory settings. I wasn't able to even boot up at the time, I kept getting the same blue screens when I got past the Windows booting screen.

During safe mode, I don't seem to crash. I'll probably just stick to safe mode and not do anything major.

Thanks for sticking with me for so long, I really appreciated the time you guys put in on figuring out what the problem was.
