What happened or what changed before the error started?

Is installing Windows 10 an option?

i was playing LOTRO and was using my guide to Esteldin and the computer hung and then crashed and when i restarted boom no drivers......

 

 

i would rather stick with win 7 if possible i have not had very many issues with the OS and enjoy the simplicity with the ease of use

You’ll need to get off Windows 7 at some point, it doesn’t get security updates for much longer as it’s 10+ years old

Maybe it’s a hardware problem. Why not try reinstalling or dual booting into a new copy of Windows

That server error sounds like something complete different.

You’d probably have Windows 10 installed with 45 mins in that PC. Fixing PCs like that is normally about narrowing down the possibilities by trial an error.

Also, 8 year old laptop? Maybe time for a new one

Well a new one would be amazing but I can not afford a new one so hoping to fix this one. As it really has been a good laptop if there is a fix I have to try money is very tight

I am also a Windows 7 fan. I wish people would quit pushing upgrades as the solution to everything. Sometimes they are useful and necessary, but in my experience upgrades have caused more problems than they have solved. I have repeatedly had situations where something that worked fine before, suddenly doesn't after an upgrade. Then I have to spend weeks or forever trying to trace an obscure issue that shouldn't have occurred in the first place. If everything works just the way I want, why upgrade at all? It just introduces new variables to make things even more confusing. I have reached an age when I don't want to have to screw with configurations anymore. I just want stuff to work. If it does, I am happy. I don't care if it is not faster or smarter or able to understand voice commands. If it ain't broke, I feel no need to fix it.

If you can confirm it's not a driver issue then it's most likely a failed chip.

 

Make sure you are getting the correct driver from the AMD website: https://www.amd.com/en/support 

 

Also that chip set is almost 7 years old now so your laptop is maximum 7 years old which would be about right life expectancy wise for it to fail now.

I'm with lNomNoml, I suspect the GPU has physically failed.

Have you got HP Software Assistant installed? Let that update/install drivers.

+1 for failed hardware however.

Really weird thing though all of it is scanning as its ok - i querried that as well, also it also kinda points to i need to clean up the registry files - so do i look at investing in errorfix kit or put money to a gpu (after full diagnostic) or look at something new and finance my life away over roughly another seven years - or invest in a dirty ole tower and then bide my time and repair lappy down the road - it is useable but not for my passion of gaming

Windows deployment kit

 

Create WinPE 4 USB stick. Boot up and see if video goes native.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/winpe-create-usb-bootable-drive 

 

Or a W7 install/recovery mayyyyyy go more than std VGA res.

 

And watch for dual video, one controller for HDMI or outputs, other for onboard have been known to be used on models. Assign wrong driver or set the wrong one as default, issues arise.
