    Seems this is a common problem that hasn't been solved. My laptop HP Pavilion DV7 running Windows 7 worked fine for many years. Took it on a train trip and when back home suddenly had 4 copies of the desktop image. Other than this it works fine. Upgraded driver, rolled back driver. Had some success by re-starting after the problem occurred. My external monitor shows the same images.

    One time I flipped it over while it was running, looking at the bottom, and the problem went away. I'm wondering if there is a physical problem with a card or something. The Amtrack train is a bone crusher at times and is a constant pounding. Also wondering if this could be heat related.
