Did your Compaq Presario V6000 come with Windows Vista? Did you use a recovery disc to restore your laptop to it's factory state?

Regarding the problem of Vista reporting that it wasn't a valid copy, you probably just needed to re-activate it.

As for your current graphics issue, is the latest graphics driver installed?
