Hi Shahzad.
I take it the way your post is worded that you installed XP on the laptop from a freshly formatted drive?
It comes standard with Vista. XP was an optional "custom" downgrade install.
If so, go back to the HP site. Download and install the chipset drivers and reboot.
Remove and reinstall graphics drivers afterwards. Reboot again.
I would leave the link but not sure what language version you require. You know where to get them anyways.
Let us know if the problem still exists.

Thanks for replying....... but i buy system without any OS.... so VISTA was not installed. There was only DOS installed, i formatted the drive created new partition and then i installed WinXp............ still unable to install Graphics drive.........

actually drive is installed but its not working..... coz my system is wide screen but display is square with black screen on right and left.... and if try to change the display settings display goes offfffffffff............. :thumbsup: :flowers: and never comes until system is restored to some previous setting or driver is uninstalled from safe mode..................

waiting for suggestions...

That's what I figured. My first reply still stands.
The chipset drivers are customized for XP on that laptop. Anytime you format a drive like that, those chipset drivers must be obtained and installed from the manufacturers website. The graphics controller and mainboard chipset work together whenever you're dealing with on-board video. I am not saying it will fix it but it needs to be eliminated so that we can move on if neccessary. Make sure you get the ones for XP. (not vista)
