Is this a NVIDIA issue?

I am pretty confident in my diagnosis, but I will get other opnions too

It has green lines at the XP boot screen and it freezes at the login screen which was not present on the other computer we tried

I put the drive in the laptop and it did not work the same, it just froze up on me

Wireless doesn't work(this is a warning based on what I read before getting this)

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Wireless has nothing to do with it. Hook it up to an external monitor and watch that monitor for artifacts on it. Try starting up in Safe Mode first and note the externals behavior. Then try your system installation disk. I have not seen the Nvidia issue produce green lines. I'm not even sure HP is still replacing this, they're not Apple service!

My client called and said his GPU isn't covered under the recall if it still exists, wireless failure is a warning your GPU will fail and up with me for file retrieval, this is my 3rd

Ok, I'll shut up. But how the wireless and GPU relate is a total mystery to me.

I have one with a burnt out(serious heat stress, he was a pain to work) GPU and it's a AMD, and 2 more like this because i offer a 35$ discount off the 50$, his was free through the whole process this time because I know then, but I will do it for 20$ if you surrender the defective computer, one BIG tip in this business: stick to your word and do the work right

The wireless is a warning the GPU is going to fail

I always like to be the highest priced guy in town. It commands more respect.
