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 have the same problem here after using this laptop for just over 1 year -- "good" timing for HP (it really sucx big time) So i did a live chat with the Total Care center and the tech support person doesnt seemed to know what she was talking:<
    this seems to be a common issue, we should probably do sth together to HP (keep me posted:

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

    When I press power button, all light light for half a second and turn off. Everything goes dark after that.

    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.

My problem is when i tried to turn my tx 1000, the lights come for .5seconds and go back...i called HP customer care they said its going to be 300$..Is there any solution for this problem ? please if...

for $300 sounds like they were going to try to install a new motherboard. You can do this yourself however if you are not technilogically advanced i do not recomment it. if the laptop is not under warranty you might want to just get a new computer and save the headaches, trust me, new motherboard means new windows install means new drivers.. Sorry for the news but its hard to troubleshoot if it wont start. My best guess like i said is the motherboard.
