My tx1000 wont start

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

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

I left my laptop turned on in my office when i came back then next morning it wont start even if I push the power button. The laptop was turned on when i left it.


Try to perform power drain. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in then plugin the power adapter then trn on the computer. You can also power on the computer without the battery. If your computer wont turn just using the power adapter then there is a possiblility that there is a problem with your power adapter.

My hp tx1000 turns on for 1 second and then shut off. I check the battery and its fine, I plug it straight to the outlet and its still don't work. I think it might be hardware problem or bad power supply. ...


Hi, I have a tx1000 with the same boot problem that you commented on. It stays on for a second then shuts off. It started after a failed repair I attempted to heat up the graphics chip. This worked once, but now failed. Any help or advice you could give would be appreciated.

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.
