Having problems with your Compaq Presario 1700 Notebook ?

When I boot the laptop up it stays up for about 30 seconds once it gets to the OS and then the screen starts turning white and then fades out to black. I backed out the old driver but that only lasted for about an hour before the screen went out again. Any ideas?

About 2 weeks ago, my screen suddenly went all fuzzy, like an old TV, only in green. I could still see the mouse, so I powered down and up again and all was well.
