Windows 7: system recovery won't complete because of graphic error

system recovery won't complete because of graphic error

Hi guys

My HP G62's discrete graphic is damaged, and I've been using it depending on integrated graphics only for a while as I disabled the external graphics driver. Unfortunately I had to conduct a "system recovery", yet because the discrete graphics is not working properly, I am stuck at "starting windows" screen. When I choose "safe mood" or "safe mood and network", a message pops up that the installation can't be completed.
I tried to disable the graphics card through the BIOS menu, but I couldn't locate such option.

Any suggestions?

Does your Laptop use switchable graphics and what card is the discrete card?
