My Laptop graphics scrambled


Nov 10, 2009
I have HP DV9222tx Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600...Recently when I turned on my Laptop there are Vertical lines from the boot screen and Vista OS will not load, I even reinstalled Vista but the problem continues, I thought to install Ubuntu 9.10 I did that and still the problem continues and Ubuntu loads without graphics drivers and it will not when I installed graphics I thought may be the graphics card in my Laptop might have died and I don't know whether I can change it or not....??? Or what could be the solution???
Same thing happened to me last nite ... solution in my case (except nVidia 8800 and Pro-star site in my acse)

Boot into safe mode (F8), uninstall nVidia drivers.....reboot

Run a driver cleaner or something like CCleaner to remove left over nVidia entries....reboot

reinstall drivers from HP site (not nVidia site)
