Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook ?

Video reverses colour and freezes any time

\015 All the colours go hot pink and orange and digitalized and the computer is frozen, sometimes for 3 minutes, and sometimes I have a blue screen saying it had to be shut off, then I restart and sometimes it is normal and works for hours and then the next day does the freezing three tmes in a row. I have reformatted twice as I thought it might be a virus and now the video problem showed up immediatley when I was loading the printer driver from the manufacturers website.\015

Answers :

You have one of two problems. As you suspected it may be your video driver. I suspect that your video adapter may be mis-identified and you may be loading an incorrect driver for it. The other possibility is that you have video memory that's bad or failing - or is being overclocked for some reason.
\015\012
\015\012Try this: Go to control panel and find your Device Manager. Find the Video Adapter and drill down on it until you see where you can remove the driver.
\015\012
\015\012Select remove the driver and reboot. Your laptop should come up with the windows default video driver in low resolution. If that works reliably, your video adapter is likely OK. Now, go to the HP website and look up your exact model - cross check that with the model number printed on the bottom of your laptop. Find the video drivers for your model (and not one that's close... it MUST be your model EXACTLY) and try installing them again.

\015\012It's unlikely that this is caused by a virus but it's not impossible. Since you've reformatted, that makes it even less likely.
