Hey guys, I upgraded my notebook to Windows 7 last month. I'm enjoying my upgrade to windows 7 for a while now when suddenly my LCD started to flicker. I just move the display lid back & forth to remove the flickering. Eventually it went worse, it went totally black and moving the lid back & forth doesn't work anymore. I closed the display lid all the way and opened it again, it went back to normal. Days passed, and now I see black/purple stripes on my display. I tried to do the same trick by closing the lid but nothing happens. I restarted my system and after the welcome screen, i see nothing but black/white stripes. I tried replacing my graphics driver from Nvidia/HP/windows update but none of those drivers solves the issue. I can only use my laptop normally in safe mode, or by uninstalling all of my graphics driver and using "Standard VGA adapter" as my driver. My unit is pavilion dv6650ee, GeForce 8400M GS. What should I do now?

You have hardware issue that is Nvidia GPU failure, go google to find futher detail.
Reflow your GPU for temporary fix.
Pavilion DV2922TX, XP-SP3 32bit, Intel T5750 2.0Ghz, Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS with 128MB, 4GB 667 DDR2, 250GB HDD
