Default BSOD, Wont boot unless in safemode, Laptop screen doesnt work,

Alright: SO i was playing a game lastnight when the graphics went abit screwy, there were purple dots all over the screen,
I put the laptop on standby (Hoping it would load, didnt want to lose my savegame ) But then it bluescreened.

Now the laptop will only boot in safemode with another screen attached, and that screen now has lines down it

See: http://i.imgur.com/K8M1V.png

I also have the BSOD dump
BSOD DUMP.zip download - 2shared


If anyone can give me a hand, i would appreciate it.

It sounds like the Graphic card is failing, if not already. And don't ask us if you can buy another card, because, you can't.

A reformat would not fix your hardware problem. All you are doing is fixing the software.

No, you can't replace the GFX. It is most likely integrated video. Which is built into your motherboard.

If it's an ATI Mobility Radeon 4870, it's going to be a separate (dedicated) card, not integrated onto the board.

Here, show's its not integrated:


Look on eBay to see if you can find one.

To be sure, what laptop brand/model do you have?
