We have one laptop that has problem with integrated graphics. When using docking station, no problem. When using just laptops own display Intel HD 3000 divides screen to four small screens. We have removed display driver and tested newest and one older version, but same problem.

When using Standard VGA it works with 800x640 resolution until next boot when Intel driver comes to computer.
Any idea how to fix this?

I don't have experience with an Intel HD chip, but had an issue with an older HP DV laptop and it turned out that the graphics chip needed reseating as the solder had melted.

It can be a driver problem alone (Try the Intel Driver at 800x640) but it is often a sign of an impending hardware problem with the timing on the graphics display.  When the correct driver is installed it pushes the screen to work at it's optimum but the screen isn't able to cope.  As OfflineGeek suggests it may just be a question of reflowing solder on the board.

Intel driver with any resolution doesn't help. Every time four screens, without driver it works with the lowest resolution

Can you provide a screenshot? Might also be interesting if the screenshot made on the computer looks like how you look at it. In some weird cases, the screenshot looks "good", different from how you look physically at the screen (suggests the panel is defect)

Screenshot is OK, but if you look it or took picture with camera it shows four screens. Bottom one's also has discoloration, both are pretty pink

Because the screenshot made on that laptop looks okay, and is different than from what you really see, it's electronics, either the output electronics of the VGA chip, or the screen panel itself (or controller board). For now, I give it a slightly higher change a panel change is enoough (100 - 200 bucks). A good computer shop might do it on a no cure no pay basis (just in case it's the graphics chip).
