Mi computer doesn't work anymore. It's an HP tx1220. My warranty has expired and a technician has told me that probably it was the mother board. What can I do?

    I do appreciate your answer. I see that I didn't explain what specifically happened.



    The power cord works well, or that was the tech told me when he saw it.
    The problem is that my laptop is dead. I can't even arrive to shoot it at first. That means when I try to turn it on, automatically it
    turns off.

    What can I do if there is a problem with the mother board?

Ok what do you mean by doesn’t work?
No power? no lights? dead?

Have you tried a different power cord?
I ask this because of these things

  • Laptop power cords can just give out without warning

  • And just because the green light on the power cord is lit does not mean it is putting out enough power or any at all

  • And even if you test the power cord and it reads the correct voltage does not mean it is still putting out enough amperage to handle a load (like powering up the computer) Of course that is extremely rare but I have seen that happen before

  • Before giving up hope I would try borrowing another cord from someone with an HP laptop or one of those I-GO laptop cords with the changeable tips or something or even better yet try your power cord on a different laptop and if the other laptop turns on .then well I am sorry

NOTE: if your power cord has a little green light on it and that light goes dim or starts flashing as soon as you plug it into the laptop then that is a very good indication (9 times out of 10) that your motherboard has gone bad and shorted out somewhere.

But there are too many possibilities of what could be wrong with out more info

When you plug it in do any lights on the computer come on at all?

I wouldn’t give up all hope yet .. that is a pretty nice little computer and worth trying to figure it out.

My wife's computer won't come on again. It is still under warranty and a technician came and put in new mother board day before yesterday. It woked for one day and the next day it won't come on


If you just had it replaced I'd recommend calling the manufacturer again as it is probably still under some type of warranty. Maybe ask them if they can replace the whole machine this time so it does not happen again?
Thanks!

Monitor goes to sleep when pc is turned on .


I am working on my neighbor's slimline HP right now. His HP was having the same problem and has an extended warranty thru HP. He sent the computer to them and was told the motherboard is bad and not repairable. They actually told him to go buy a new computer! I told him I would take a look at it for him. I could not verify if it was the on-board video because even though the board has a PCI-E slot only a half size graphics card will fit and I do not have one. I need to verify that it is not the power supply but the problem is the board uses a small form ATX connector so I had to order and adapter for $15 and I am waiting for the part. If the power supply turns out to be then I will probably install a new motherboard. The problem is there is no where to get a new motherboard for this model(was made by Asus for HP). There are only used available one's available with no warranty. When I get the part to test the power supply I will post an update to you.

Mother board wont power up


If you have another Socket 478, you can probably use it with your CPU. This is not a guarantee, but in my experience, it should work. If you come up with one, you can probably check the specs on the manufacturer's site to make sure it will support your components that are in the present board. Sure worth a try. One problem is you might have to do some case mods to make the other motherboard fit. Many of the manufacturers get their boards and cases custom-made.

You may need to contact HP directly.
This is your motherboard specification: Onyx2-GL8E
Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS PTGV-DM
CPU/Processor Socket: 479

Provide them with the part number: EP140-69002. If they unable to find the part try 5188-3647. HP may require you to pay for extended warranty and technical charges for technician. Standard warranty does not cover the fee for technician. This is because HP does not recommend users to replace the motherboard by themselves. If you insist of doing so then there would not be any extra charges.

You may contact HP at 800-474-6836 if you are from US, If you are from Australia or NZ call 1300 888 423. If dialing internationally: +61 3 8833 5000.

Please rate my solution.

No Boot/Start up Disk-CRAPY Warranty


Check your local state/country consumer laws to do with warranty as I know here if it's a 1yr warranty it starts on the day you bought it. We can also take it back to the place of purchase if need be and not deal with the manufacturer as that is who the contract is with.

If it's a fairly new PC it probably didn't come with any Operating System media as they usually put this onto the hard drive now days in a special partition. This is good and bad but seems all OEMs are doing it now so nothing we can do. They do sometimes leave you instructions on how to create your own backup media in case of total hard drive failure, you have to just supply your own blank CD/DVD disks and burn them.

HP Flat Panel Monitor is dead!


The power supply within the monitor has probably expired. HP doesn't do spare parts for their TFT monitors as they are Full Unit Replacement items (if in warranty).
