I have encountered a very weird problem while installing and using linux on my hp pavillion dv6000 laptop.

I get a distorted screen when i try to install ubuntu on my linux. the screen is divided into three parts and the windows (for ex: window for install option , terminal etc) are also divided into three parts. but the problem got resolved when connected external monitor to my laptop. i think there is some problem in my graphics card or laptop screen it is not able to adjust its resolution on its own.... but when i connect my monitor, both my monitor and laptop screen work perfectly fine. what is this problem and how should i resolve it? and now, every time i want to boot into linux , first i have to connect my monitor to get my laptop screen working right.

please i need a solution.
