New laptop, graphics problems?


I just got a HP DM3-1030 laptop for a client and I have noticed some very weird graphics issues.

Without explaining for ages, this video explains it best:

I have arranged a return of the laptop, but was wondering if anyone has seen this before?

(I would normally spend hours diagnosing etc, but time is urgent on this one, I have tried both available drivers and uninstalled everything that I think would interfere with the graphics.)
