HP TX1320US not powering up .. seems dead..

My HP TX1320US not powering up .. seems dead.. not booting up at all..

Two days before my laptop died there was sudden freeze.. everything froze for about 2 minutes.. ithappened couple of times.. at time freeze was for 30 sec and at timesit was for 5 minutes.. I saw that CPU usage hit 100%

I restarted the machine couple of time.. it started but the same problem..

then suddenly it refused to start.. with power on and battery

Whenever I slide the power on button.. there is less than a 1 second flash of the units LEDs and it powers off.

I disconnected the battery, power and left the machine for about 5hrs.. tried starting again but no success..I have tried with andwithout wall power. I have tried it with wall power and no batteryobtaining the same results. The power adapter is fine as it can powermy other laptop pretty well.

Interestingly warranty on my machine expired during last week of October 2008.

Interestingly, almost everyone is experiencing this kind of problem with HPTX1000 series. Most interesting part is that this happened with in amonth after their warranty expired.

    My computer TX1320US is dead and since I got it always have problems, never work well. I took my computer to repair and in the place I went they told me all these computers have an extension of warranty, Does anybody knows if this is true? Because the only thing I have found is that a lot of people is in the same situation and HP is not responding for it if your warranty already expiry.

The problem is in the GPU this defective chp is verheating and causing the WLANt fail and then it gets the solder joints loose on the board causng no video. It is a rather easy fix if yu are ok with removing your own motherboard. If interested I am willing to do the fix for anyone that has one of these machines. I have one and completed the fix on mine and 4 other machines. If interested email me at thanks and good luck.

I have seen where the memory can become loose and you need to re-seat the RAM.

HP Pavilion TX1320us powers up, screen is black, nothing on an external monitor - seems to be bad video card. These were recalled and after trying since May 09 with an authorized HP reseller/repair...

When we talk about laptop won't boot up it is a hardware failure.

First of all, most of the hardware failures that are going to be presented in this article require you to disassemble the laptop and work on its internal components. Because of this, you need the required components to take the laptop apart (such as screwdrivers, etc.) and space, lots of space. If you don't have a workbench, then working on that large table in the living room should do it.

Second of all, you need to be extra careful about ESD (electrostatic discharge). Sure, this is important when working with a desktop system too, but you really shouldn't consider this as some sort of overreaction or waste of time. A few anti-static conductive bags should suffice. These are going to be useful when you take apart components from the laptop and you need a safe place to put them down.

If the laptop does not power on using the batteries, then try to power it using the AC adapter. Pay attention and see whether the LED on the laptop lights up, signaling that the adapter was detected. If yes, then your power jack works. If the notebook still does not power on, disassemble the laptop and remove the batteries. Look first for the CMOS battery and take it out.

Your best bet is that the problem is memory-related. What you need to do is re-seat the memory modules. If there are more than one, then try swapping them between each other and try different slots. Try booting again. If it does not work, then try running with only one module - this way, you can tell whether one is faulty.

Disassemble the laptop and remove the HDD, CD/DVD drives, and the modem and/or wireless card(s). If possible, take out the sound card module (if separate). To minimize the possible causes, you may disconnect the LCD panel as well. Try running this way. If it does boot, then try connecting each connector one at a time, booting up in between to localize the problem.

Good luck and take time to do a hard troubleshooting this trouble is not easy as well. You need to be care full in removing the some parts so that the other will not affected and being damaged.

What makes a computer powers up and not boot,after booting previously?

Unplug your laptop and then remove the battery. Replace the battery and start it up. IT should now be reset and work. If it still does not work you have a more serious issue which will require a technician.
