Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook
It is caused by the solder connections on the GBA (Grid Ball Array) getting crystallized and not making contact. But wait dont send it out for repairs there is a very easy fix. Plug laptop in with power cord..power it on..wrap it in 2 heavy towels for 30-40 minutes letting it get hot..it will melt the crystalls and fix the dispaly proble. After 3-40 minus, unwrap, turn off laptop and restart..Presto laptop should work fine now, it is called reflowing the solder. I own a computer repair shop and have fixed dozens thsi way

Hi. just had my laptop repaired by a non-hp technician here in the philippines. a friend of mine who also owns a tx1000 had his repaired there as well.
anyway, the problem apparently is the on-board graphics chip that comes with the laptop. the intense heat inside the laptop weakens the soldering of the chip, and will at some point in time sever its connection with the motherboard. so what he did was simply re-solder the chip, and now everything works just fine. i believe what the folks at hp does is that they replace the entire motherboard. he did point out, however, that the problem may recur in the future since the laptop does have some serious heating problems.
he gave me the following tips:
1. use a laptop cooler whenever possible.
2. avoid going into hibernation and sleep. use the shutdown function as much as possible.
there you have it.

You could always try reinstalling the driver to see if that cures it...here is a link to the wireless driver for the TX1000:
Hope this helps
