HP Pavilion tx 1000 wont start

Every time i go to start my laptop, it will power up but it won't start up. All of the normal lights are on but the hard drive usage light. That light will blink 4-5 times, then there is nothing. Any help would be great.

    I have the same problem with HP tx 1000 laptop that I own. My laptop is out of warranty now and it's been only 1 year 5 months. Looks like all HP tablet PCs have the same problem.

    I had the same problems with this model after the warranty expired by one month. I think it is a compatibility problem with vista?

    1 month after the 1 year warranty was up, my tx1000z started having the same problem. Other than that, the wireless card spontaneously becomes invisible to the system, even though I have bought and installed a replacement.

    Same thing. after 18 months of using my tx1000, the mainboard fried. I actually was able to have a HP tech come to the conclusion that the M.B. was fried, seemed like he already knew before we started talking! You have 2 choices: Part it out and sell the parts on ebay, or pay 295.00 or more to have Hp fix it. Seems you'll get a different price quote everytime, up to 400! In my opinion that is more than it would be worth, because of the issues with the wireless card. I will not buying another HP or Compaq brand, I have a Compaq f500 that did the same thing, fortunately it was still under warranty. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!

This is problem with either or both the Southbridge or the Northbridge on the MOBO. Either they will have to be refloated with solder or the motehrboard replaced.

My HP tx1005au laptop has the same problem after using it for 1 year 7 months. It has power, fan is blowing, but monitor is black. If you keep on trying to start it, sometimes up to fifteen tries, it will suddenly start as if nothing has happened. It is driving me nuts. Hope someone could enlighten us as to what is wrong with this.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start

Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

Why doesn't my HP 4620 print black ink

Either the BLACK INK CARTRIDGE is out of ink of it's possible the ink jets (they eject the ink onto the paper) are clogged/dirty. Your software under HP in PROGRAMS from the START MENU should provide a 'cleaning' cycle. How to Clean Print Heads is a link to help you with how.

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?

Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
