If you updated the graphic driver,chipset,DirectX,then...
Set the resolution in what you always have it and restart.

I did... And the problem persists.

Okay, so I just kind of fooled around and I think I've fixed it. I noticed that ever uninstalling the driver in devmgr would cause Windows to reinstall it in order to always have a driver going. This meant that none of my attempts to uninstall, despite anything, would ever really uninstall it. So what I did was this:

I uninstalled it while cued up on the Intel Driver Update Utility and immediately began a download of a new driver while Windows was attempting to install the bad one. Upon acquiring the .exe, I followed it's directions up until the point where it would install the new driver. Then, I immediately went into devmgr and killed the old driver, following that by immediately triggering the new driver's installation. The new driver's installation beat out Windows with the old one and Windows read a new driver as being in place and thus cancelled it's own installation.

I restarted and, much to my surprise, everything is back to normal. I really didn't expect it to work, but it seems to have. I'm going to keep this thread open so that I can restart once more and see if I've really fixed the problem. Once I'm sure I've fixed, or once I'm sure I've failed, I'll post back. Thanks for your continued help!

The automatic driver update utility isn't finding anything. It doesn't even say I have a graphics driver on my computer. I guess because I've uninstalled it. After seeing this, I tried to go into the download center and find the right driver. I did Laptop, Graphics Drivers, Windows 7 Home Premium, downloaded every available option and ALL of them said my "system lacked the minimum requirements" Or something along those lines...

Questions:
a)Did you tried a System Restore from a point before crashing?
b)With ur laptop did you receive an emergency/repair dvd/cd?
c)When you start the laptop did you see any recovery button choise? for example F2 or F11?

I did restore to before crashes. No affect.
No, I did not. If I did, I DEFINITELY don't know where it is. >_>
It says I can press ESC for some options. And, obviously, I've been using F8 to boot into Safe Mode.

About to try the procedure you just posted. Will post back soon.

The Driver Update Utility still fails to find anything. None of the downloads work manually, either. Same error. Should I just try to System Restore back even further? I'll do anything to make this thing work again.

Ok lets do a full recovery,go here and choose the:Restore the PC to its original condition with the HP Recovery Manager
If you like write down or print the steps.
And notice that in the HP website:
WARNING: This is the final opportunity to change your mind about recovering the PC and deleting all the files and programs. Once you click Next , the restore process cannot be stopped.
IMO Lets start with that
Reinstall specific drivers or applications
With HP recovery manager you have lots and helpfully choices.
Well are you ready? First lets do that:
Reinstall specific drivers or applications
