Laptop Video Issue
Posted on 2012-03-19
I have an HP Pavilion zd8000 laptop with Windows XP. The problem I am having is that it loses video. What I mean is that when I boot the system I see the HP logo and the options to go into setup etc. The the Windows splash screen comes up and does its thing. After that the screen goes blank briefly and then I can see the backlight come on and the mouse pointer will appear on the screen. Then I will hear the windows chimes and then the screen will be blank and there will be no video. The HDD and the fans are all still running but there is nothing on the screen. I have replaced the RAM and also performed a repair install of Windows with no success.
I can boot into Safe Mode with no problem so I am wondering if this is a driver issue.
