Need help. Computer has epilepsy

Wtf is going on? There was no warning to this. Was using my laptop when this started with no warning.

Laptop is a HP dv7-3173nr. I've restarted it a few times and it still flashes colors. Unplugged and replugged the lcd monitor. Nothing.

Sounds like a definite hardware issue to me. Just to make sure, though, does it flash from the moment you turn it on (at the logo screen and while Windows is loading), or does it only start flashing once you boot into Windows?

Assuming it's doing it the whole time (which I suspect is the case), it's a hardware issue that isn't going to be easy to fix. It could be the screen itself (or various components of it), or it could be the video card. It probably just depends on what the laptop is worth whether you want to try and fix it.

If you decide it's not worth fixing, you can always buy an external monitor and turn it into a desktop.

Sorry that I don't have any great news for you.

Turned it off and let it sit for about 10 hrs without charging and without the battery and it's working now.

I bought this laptop in 2010, so it's had a good run if I need to get a new one.

Could be heat related. Check your vents and fans for dust bunnies.

I currently use a HP dv4-1224la and had a problem like this at one point, or at least as I recall it started this way. It only seemed to happen when the computer was warm, so could be the same problem. Eventually the monitor went what I thought was completely out and was in fear of replacing the whole thing. With a little research I have learned that at least for my model it is a faulty cable. If the problem comes back can you connect an external monitor and see if that external monitor has the same problem. The way I fix mine (don't have the skill to replace the cable myself) is very simple, basically a pinch/slight lift on the left side of the monitor. The other things I have heard is opening the screen more than 90 when turning it on or waking it up.

I think this was the problem. I'm getting some compressed air to try to clean out the vents tomorrow.

And I just noticed that the video didn't show up in the OP. He it is

Weird - that looks like some sort of test pattern. If that's the case, that'd point to the video card more than the screen I think.

could be a bad vid card, or a bad ribbon cable.
