Ok, here goes
Around 2 days ago I was recording a video to my laptop (HP Pavillion dv6000 notebook) with a device called the "Hauppauge HD PVR" while recording the screen started flashing like a strobe light then went black. I could hear sound repeating over and over but nothing displaying on the screen. I let it sit for 10 minuites before deciding it had had enough time, and had to hold the power button to switch it off.
Upon starting up I could see nothing on the screen but had different colours of lines and blocks going across the screen fading in and out. At this point i thought to myself there is really something wrong going on here and held the power button off again. I then took out the battery put it in again then went to start up. I could now see a little but still grey and colourd blocks all over the screen. I logged in and procceded the start up as normal then went to try and fix the problem by changing the screen resolution (previously 640x480 with 4 bit colour) this worked untill i went to try and watch a video on youtube a dvd or from recordings I had made, which made the computer freeze, the screen go black show a blue screen and then proceed restart.
after restarting the resolution would change back and then would not let me change it again, making it really hard to see any settings or even signing up for this site as a matter of fact (sorry for any spelling mistakes).
I searched many sites with people having similar issues, this one having the most related to mine.
I have tried the following:
Clean boot - problem persisted.
Update Display card driver- Problem persisted.
I also mannaged to snatch up the error report before it restarted on me:
