Do not pay for repair. Ask hp.com (chat there) for a deal. The dv6000 and 9000 series are well discussed about the GPU issues. There is no good news here.
the display on the monitor has straight lines on the entire page and its blurry. i use the notebook as my desktop replacement. It docks into the HP xb4 media docking station, and i also use a 19 inch external monitor that plugs into the rear of the docking station. the display on the external monitor work just fine, but the display on the notebook monitor nothing but lines and a blurry picture. Will a factory reset resolve the problem or is the video card going bad in this laptop. The video card isn't a dedicated card, so is it work repairing ? I've created a backup of the hard drive to an external HD, I'm just hoping I can salvage this laptop bcuz it work well with the xb4 docking station. Can the laptop be saved ? Your thoughts ? And thank you ?
