Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook
My laptop wont start at all. when i push the power button most of its lights go on but they turn right back off like in 2 seconds. i removed the battery and tried with direct energy from the power outlet, it does the same thing. ive left it a few hours charging to see if it was the battery but it didnt start either.
When this happens it means that you have one or more bad capacitors and the only way to fix the computer is to replace them. Capacitors are those little round bits on the motherboard that look like little cans and literally cost about 10 cents or so. It's not something that can be done on modern motherboards without specialized soldering equipment (i.e. a pen torch), but is relatively easy to do. Google ""replace capacitors for more information, but you're best off having it sent to a professional who can fix it cheaply (some advertise on ebay).

Remove the ram cards, and plug it back in. if that doesnt help try testing with another set of memories.. and if that fails u'll need to replace the motherboard
