    I have the same problem and can't solve it until now.

  • Anonymous Feb 16, 2009

    I have had my tx 1000 for about a year and everything has been working perfectly. Two days ago a Microsoft update downloaded and my wireless capability vanished. When I run the wireless assistant Bluetooth will show up but no WLAN? If I run the HP updater it says everything is current? What gives? Where did the WLAN go? The manual switch is on and blue.

  • vasania Feb 25, 2009

    WLAN not showing up in the Device Manager & HP Wireless assitant. WLAN not working only Bluetooth is showing.

  • vasania Feb 25, 2009

    I also ReInstalled the OS to the Original Factory shipped state by running Recovery Disks of Vista, but still the WLAN does not show up.

    Folks! You are not alone on the issues with the HP tx1000, tx1320us, and all of the other like models that have the motherboard defect. I keep hoping HP will wake-up and do the right thing by correcting this issue. Please keep posting and calling.
    Here are links to other messages in the forums dealing with the same bad motherboard.

    hi



    I have the same problem, my HP Pavilion tx 1000 has stopped detecting WLAN suddenly



    did any one got this problem resolved



    i have tried BIOS update, reinstalling WLAN driver

    but none works



  • Eric D53 Mar 03, 2009

    What I have learn, if your pc is still covered under warranty they will repair it, but, the issue will return. It is an integration issue with the chipset being used. So, nothing short of a redesign motherboard will correct it. It will happen again. I’m pushing to have this design defect computer swapped with something else that doesn’t have this issue. I don’t know if I will get anywhere with this approach, but this is the only solution I would be will to except. That said, I doubt I’ll ever purchase another HP product again. I will make it a point to inform family and coworkers of how HP is handling this issue.



    This is just my opinion, but if you want to extend the life of your tx1000 series tablet, run it in battery save mode ONLY. This helps keep the chipset from overheating and failing. Sad thing for me, this is what allowed mine to last past the warranty.

    Lossed wireless function on HP Pavilion tx1000 notebook after 18 months. All indicators show the Wireless O.K..

  • leblu Mar 22, 2009

    Well, I´m another affected with this problem. My wlan was lost from time to time, but all i had to do was putting my laptop to sleep,and when it woke up, i could connect again. A few days ago, it just disappeared. I´ve tried upgrading bios, re installing drivers, but nothing seems to work. Yesterday wlan was there, as if nothing had happened before. Today, it´s gone again. HP sucks big time.

  • spitfire0135 Mar 25, 2009

    I've got the exact same problem with my HP Pavilion dv6325us. WLAN doesn't detect any wireless networks half the time and when it does it doesn't stay that way for long...after either restarting or turning off and back on the problem reoccurs-HP needs to do something about this. I unfortunetly have had mine a year past warranty so i'm SOL...but like I said it works on rare occasions...

  • Anonymous Apr 09, 2009

    only detects bluethoot and does not detect any WLAN.

    It does not matter how many times you rebooth, or restart in any way.

    It did worked the first two months the problem appeared, but now WLAN is totally of the radar.



    some state it is a hardware problem, others com with re-installing drivers/software.



    I still have no clue yet.

  • Anonymous Apr 23, 2009

    downloaded microsoft update & wlan is gone

  • itohiro Apr 24, 2009

    i sent to HP previously, they replaced the motherboard. the problem returned, and i sent it back. they said, nothing was wrong. it doesn't happen often enough to scream at em yet, i can't even proof it happens when i brought it there. sometimes, it does happen, sometimes it doesn't.

    how do i reboot my hp pavilion tx 1000?

  • elizzyp May 17, 2009

    Me too! I have no clue what to do except to spend upwards for $250 to get it fixed. I am using a USB device and a chill mat right now which are all right - but kind of sucks for portability.

    other things:
    won't accept HP updated, even forced ones
    video card is starting to fail so no screen upon boot (chill mat us helping with this)
    battery life decreased significantly
    keys fail intermittently

    would love some suggestion! Elizabeth


  • varun_cnbra May 24, 2009

    The pc turns on but the screen stays black if it is running on battery but starts up perfectly if it is on AC power.

    also the wlan card is never detected.

    Plz help...

    Thanks.

Don't waste your time doing anything tech support suggests to fix the problems you are having with your tx laptop. They are simply defective. It's intuitively obvious to all computer engineers and tech savvy people, but HP refuses to acknowledge this reality. The end result for any tx laptop is that it will overheat, the mother board fries and your finished. Before that, you'll have all kinds of other problems, not the least of which being the issues with loosing the settings on your wireless LAN b/c there is a defective NVidia chipset in the tx line. When that happens you're near the end.

HP will charge you money to replace your motherboard which will only fry again...and will also NOT fix your wireless LAN problems, or the problems with coming out of sleep mode and having your computer freeze. HP is burning all of their customers by pretending that this problem does not exist. I spent hours and hours pleading with their support staff to replace my laptop with a non-defective model and they refused. I informed them that they'd be leaving me with no other option than to file a small claim against HP in court. At which point HP had a person call me from the complaint resolution dept. His name was Javier and he informed me that he was at the highest level of complaint resolution. Through his broken English and improper grammar he also informed me that the best HP could do was offer me a 30% discount on the repair. I asked Javier, "And let me guess...the 'repair' would be to replace the motherboard, right?" He said yes. I explained to Javier once again that essentially what HP is asking me now to do is to waste even more money on a defective product when they know for a fact that it will not fix the problem. The motherboard will only fry again. He said that he was closing this complaint and citing that I declined their "offer to help me."


Ridiculous. I am livid. I have been a loyal HP customer for 9 years. My Dad is a programmer and turned me onto HP and ever since, I have bought exclusively...desktops, laptops, wireless keyboard/mice combos, speakers, monitors, webcams...even printer. And everyone knows HP puts out horrible printers. I bought them anyway. Nine years of loyal customer purchases...all to be completely burned. I spent $1400 on a piece of garbage that gave me problems since day one. In fact, I bought two. The first, fried on day 3 and I had it replaced. I have explained all of this to HP in writing and over the phone with their "highest level of complaint resolvers" and HP has completely burned me. I will NEVER purchase another HP product again and I will do my very best to share my experience of being ignored by HP after 9 years of buying their products. To pour salt on the wound, the HP rep lied to me at the end of the call and insisted that HP has no record of any other complaints regarding this issue. I literally laughed out loud. I said, "Sir, you're lying through your teeth!" Dozens of forums exist online with hundreds and hundreds of postings form people who have been burned, just like me. HP is totally aware that this problem exists. Do not let their support staff lie to you! First thing Monday morning, I will be filing a small claim against HP. And I will send out a mass email to the 3,00 or so people on my list, to alert them of what HP is doing to me, and so many other people who have purchased their defective garbage. i will request that every single person forward my email to as many people as the y can, alerting them that HP sells known defective products and burns their customers. You may email any questions to me at pm_ob@yahoo.com.

Or you can email another victim of the tx line, Wayne@WayneSallee.com. He has posted a lot of helpful info after being lied to and scammed by HP as well.

Or go to:

http://hplies.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=294
to find out more about the lies HP tells their customers about the defective products they sell.

Or read a news article about HP being aware of the defective Nvidia chipset @:
http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/675/1043675/hp-desktops-defective-nvidia

My suggestion to anyone is to completely avoid ever buying any HP product ever again. So many of them are defective and HP will burn you once you discover this.

EXTREMELY common failure in the TX1000 line. Problem is the mainboard, part# 441097-001. From HP it should only be about $200 on exchange. DO NOT get this part anywhere else, as the OTHER common failure for this model is the wifi goes out. I do about 10 of these TX's per day, no im not kidding, and i promise you HP has the most stable parts source around for this. Sadly, any reflow attempts meet with very sparse success. Reballing the chipset and sealing with epoxy on all sides doesnt resolve with satisfaction either. It may work for a few days or weeks, but the prob will still persist. Since we went to outright replacing the mlb's back in November, we have seen less than 5% (if that) come back...out of roughly 1100 laptops serviced (yes, damn near all of 'em by me...) -Sy

Here is how I got my mother board replaced from HP...Call this number
Hewlett-Packard Company
Palo Alto, CA 94304-1185 USA
Phone: (650) 857-1501
Ask for the Executive consumer department, make sure they understand that you need to speak to someone in the EXECUTIVE department. Then you tell them that you know they have a defective product that they should recall, you are going to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission unless they FIX this problem for you...they will give you a CASE MANAGER..tell the case manager (you have to act angry but not rude) you know that HP is aware of the NVIDIA processor being defective, you know they extended the warranty of all the HIGH END computers they put the chip in, and you want them to replace your motherboard. This is what I did and they admitted to me on the phone that they knew all about the problem but that it would be too expensive for them to fix all the computers so they would wait for people to call the right number before they would do anything. They sent me a prepaid box with an over night label, I shipped it to them on a Monday and had it back by Wednesday..I removed my hard drive because they wipe them clean...they sent my computer back to me with a new battery, new mother board, cpu fan and new keyboard and it works GREAT! good luck.

Hello, I would say that it is faulty. I hope your system is under warranty. You can google your question and you will see many others are having this same issue and it is turning out to be defective hardware.

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. It is possibly related to heat loosing the solder connections. However, HP is not admitting there is a problem like on alot of their DV Series.

Hi, I had the same problem, it is linked with the Nvidia driver, as I have discovered, as the wireless/bluetooth switch light - if it stayed orange on start up my display would stay black..then switched the pc on off slider to hold until pc switched off, restarted if the wireless/bluetooth light turns blue on start up then my display would work....
So after trying lots of different supposed fixes, I finally, used recovery manager and set the TX1000 back to factory state, then at first it did the same thing, then I updated the Nvidia display driver in devices let it find from internet ( I used wired connection for this to my server) then don't restart the pc, instead go straight to recovery manager and re install the broadcom wireless driver, then restart, it has worked for me as my TX1000 runs perfectly now, also I have noticed that the wireless pop up box on start up shows WLAN first with Bluetooth underneath,

I hope that helps

Same thing happened to me. I just spent 3 valuable hours trying to figure it out. Apparently, my network card didn't work b/c even with the wired connection it did not detect the router.

1. I safely uninstalled the network driver
2. I used another computer to download the NVIDIA nForce network driver from the HP site.
3. Reinstalled by doing a new hardware detect (it seems to have installed on its own w/o the new driver I downloaded. Go figure.)

at this point, internet was detectable using a wired connection, but the wireless network was not available. So,

1. I went to HP to download the HP Wireless Assistant program from the HP support site.
2. Installed the exe file.

All this took a few restarts and it froze at times, but after about 4 restarts, everything seems to be working correctly again.

Good luck!

First, look thru HP Health check and download all recommended.
Second, go to HP site, download and reinstall WLAN driver and HP Wireless assistant software
Third, download at the same site HP WinFlash BIOS Update and update BIOS (READ and FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY)
Reboot.
If you are lucky ;-)  WLAN will now works - try to switch it on by WLAN switch.

AND NOW - SELL YOUR HP to someone ASAP.
Because it's no warranty that this deffect can't re-appears :(
Good idea is a full mainboard change as you read above.

This is a problem with many current hp laptops. to get moving on this issue, you need to plug your laptop into a router directly via an CAT5e patch cable (if need it can be bought at most major retailers including walmart) after plugging in, you should have no problem getting online and getting windows updates. windows has released an update with information as to go about reporting and resolving this issue

I didnt find bluetooth in my HP Pavilion dv4


meaning that you had it one day and the next the BT device is no longer listed in the device manager.

I had a similar issue with a pavilion tx1000. In that case it was the wifi that would disappear. The short version is that if you are still under warranty hp will probably replace the BT card while refusing to acknowledge that fundamental design flaws in both the TX and DV lines results in a pc that will likely fail within 1 year of the end of its warranty. (google your model and complaints, or the word recalled, I would start backing up anything you consider important that you have on that machine b/c the downward cycle has begun.

Pavilion TX1000 - WiFi card suddenly not detected


The solution is, get a USB wifi adapter, because that card is done. HP REFUSES to recognize this problem, and since the majority of failures happen after the warranty expires (mine did) HP just says you are SOL. You can get decent wireless adapters for $20, and your wireless problems will be solved. Unfortunately, expect your laptops motherboard/chipset/dc port to fail within a year :(

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

Bluetooth in HPTx1000


I believe there's a switch on the HP pavilion TX1000 to enable its Wireless LAN and Bluetooth.

To the right of the audio inputs and outputs is a slider switch and an LED. This one controls the wireless devices, both the Wireless LAN and Bluetooth and is blue while the wireless devices are enabled and red when they are not.
