This is my HP Pavilion dv9543cl Screen,, Ok so this is the problem.. started with bluescreen crashes

I played alottt of games in this laptop like crysis COD series Mass effect and many heavy games.. I played Command and Conguer Red alert 3 but when i finished this game.. i started playing skirmish mode just for passing my time.. i turned off my laptop n da next day when i turned on my laptop.. Colourful Horizontal lines appeared all over the screen ! I restarted my laptop in Safe Mode & Uninstalled Nvidia Drivers, tried many different Nvidia drivers Including Stock Driver but all were useless & now i completely Uninstalled Nvidia Driver and m running laptop on Standard VGA and i am getting this (Screenshot) ! I tried many things like Windows Restore, Windows recovery, even i formatted and installed Windows 7 (Before i had Windows Vista, after installing windows 7.. things worsened up ! )... Disk Error check n many kinds of checks n all but all were useless !

What should i do now? Please Help..

I have the same kind of problems :-(

Also with an HP portable. I know that HP does not support the combination of the PC with Windows7 ...

I'm sorry but it looks like a GPU failure. If you have warranty contact with HP.

It's a wellknown Nvidea problem, bad quality design and soldering of the Geforce 8600 series, see

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_8_Series

' Some chips of the GeForce 8 series (concretely those from the G84 and G86 series) may suffer from an overheating problem. NVIDIA states this issue should not affect many chips,[38] whereas others assert that all of the chips in these series are potentially affected.[38] NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and CFO Marvin Burkett were involved in a lawsuit filed on September 9, 2008 alleging that their knowledge of the flaw, and their intent to hide it, resulted in NVIDIA losing 31% on the stock markets.[39]

The reason for the high failure rate was because of faulty solder material; when the GPU heated up and then cooled over its use, particularly when used in GPU intensive operations like games, the solder would become soft when hot, and when cool, that solder would crack, causing failure in the 8600M GT, 8600M GS, 8400M GT, and 8400M GS cards. It is widely acknowledged that these cards have a universal design flaw. It has also been speculated that mobile cards prior to the GeForce 8M series like the GeForce Go 7600 and earlier also have this design flaw, although it has not been proven.

An Apple support page describes this problem on some of the MacBook Pro laptops, manufactured in 2007-2008. '
