How come my laptop screen gets all squiggly after I used my computer for a few minutes?

Q: I have an HP laptop. Don’t ask me what kind, I don’t know. Yesterday I turned on the computer and was able to navigate for a few minutes before everything became all squiggly. I shut the computer off and rebooted it in normal mode. The same thing happens again. I shut down the computer again and rebooted. I did this two more times and now the computer is on but my screen is black. Is my video card bad? Do I fix or replace.

    Your laptop will either need to be taken somewhere for a repair, or replaced. If you’ve already owned the laptop for a few years I’d suggest just doing the replacement. However if you’ve owned it for less than two years, you should check with HP regarding warranty status.
