All the hardware checks out good and with the issues that we fixt from PC Pit Stop it should be working now.
The hardware has all been cleared as a possible issue by either you or with the programs I have had you run.
If it turns out to be a faulty video card and since it is a laptop then that is a whole new issue since there is no way to replace a video chip on a laptop.
