problems with my screen- multi colored lines. GPU? Motherboard?

I have a barely 2 year old HP G71-34OUS laptop. Two weeks ago it suddenly went haywire and my screen ended up with multiple colored lines that change patterns as the screen is moved. I spoke to a local computer guy who said that it sounds like the GPU and that chances are, the motherboard is kaput. The repair is estimated at about 500! Is anyone else having this issue? Has there been a recall for this computers GPU? My warranty expired 1/30/2012.. this is crazy!  Thanks~

It does sound like GPU chip problem. Several members have used the repair service HERE and reported excellent results, if you are in US. You might contact him via email or phone to check on availabilty of service for your model.
