HP tx1009AU not booting up

Hi,
Don't know whether this the right place to post my query or not? Still....

My hp tx1009au laptop stopped booting after a year's warranty. I have visited many of the forum's and it seems a world wide problem with HP tablet machines. I did send my laptop to HP service center they said i need to replace my motherboard. Want to know the exact price of HP motherboards.

Thanks

I don't know HP's cost, of replacing this motherboard. A qualified, authorized, HP repair shop, will probably charge $300 to $400 dollars. To include the new motherboard, and labor to replace.

Too bad that you don't want to try it. A new motherboard may be $180 off of the internet.
Labor cost? 0 (But read on. This may not be advisable)

Quick search on Ebay for Pavilion tx1000 series motherboard,

http://computers.shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=hp+pavilion+tx1000&_sacat=60265&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1311&_odkw=&_osacat=60265

Your Pavilion tx1009AU, is part of the Pavilion tx1000 Series. All the same motherboards.

HP.com/Support and the PDF Maintenance and Service Guide, (It's a Service Manual. Don't let the
-> 'Guide' fool you!)

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00853874.pdf

Should the above direct link for the PDF Maintenance and Service Guide, not work for you,
here is HP.com/Support, and the download page for it,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3350312&lang=en&

On this page, go down to the first manual listed ->
HP tx1000 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide <- in blue. (Size: 3.48MB) Click on it.
You may not see anything happening. Give it 20 seconds at least, then the first page should pop up. Let it fully download before looking through it.

Tells you how to properly disassemble the laptop, and reassemble it. Gives you the part numbers, gives you the Specifications, and how to replace individual parts. Shows illustrations also.
Service Manual.

Just thought, I would pass this information on to you. Food for thought.

ONE more item!

The reason a LOT of laptops are being recalled, due to motherboard problems, stems from the DC Power Jack, and the way it's mounted to the motherboard. (Or having warranty work done)

The DC Power Jack, is that little round opening, where you plug the AC adapter, (Charger) into the laptop.
It is a small rectangular piece of plastic, that has a round metal sleeve in it, and a metal post in the middle.
This, is an example of an average DC Power Jack,
http://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/yhst-42877593004970_2046_1336946

These jack's break. The middle pin can break in it's mount. Those flat metal pins you see sticking up, from the link above, go down into the motherboard. (The photo shows the jack upside down, in relation to how it sits on the motherboard)

These flat pins are soldered to the backside, of the motherboard. The solder joints can break.

For those laptops recalled due to a motherboard problem, it's due to the design of the motherboard, and how the DC Power Jack is attached.

Crude example:
Think of the laptop motherboard, as a 1 foot square. (As you can see, it isn't)
Now attach a 2 inch square to one side of this.
The 2 inch square is actually part of the motherboard. It looks like a 'Peninsula', sticking off of the main body of the motherboard.

Now attach the DC Power Jack, to this 2 inch square.

With the 'Charger' plugged into the laptop, the charger plug can get bumped. This can move the DC Power Jack enough, that the 'Peninsula' can break off, of the main body of the motherboard.

This 'Peninsula' can also break off, just due to everyday usage. Plugging the charger in, and taking it back out.

There are very flat, thin, copper strips on a motherboard, called 'Traces'. Think of them as very flat thin wires.
The traces, coming across the main body of the motherboard, to the 'Peninsula', can become stretched, and break.

This, results in No power coming from the 'Charger'. Nothing to charge the battery, nothing to keep the laptop working!

Bad motherboard design. Not the laptop manufacturers fault, (In this case HP), but the fault of the designer, that designed the motherboard.

So even if you do replace the motherboard, there's no guarantee this issue won't happen again.

Sorry this was so long and drawn out.

Default password


there is no default password on an HP switch. You can clear the password on a switch by powering on a switch and make sure it is done booting (you should see all the port light up for a short time in order down the switch when it is booted) then take a paper clip and press the clear button on the front of the switch. that will clear any password left on the switch

My hp pavilion tx1000series won't boot even at bios


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.

Hi Tculver, I have ProCurve 2424, 2524 and 4000/8000s so I can?t really address your direct question but I may have some advice. I know lots of people who use ProCurve devices and don?t realize they have a lifetime warranty. You might want to consider just flashing them with the latest firmware and if it continues call HP support. If they can?t fix them over the phone they?ll send out replacements via next day deliver. Its one of the major reasons all of my switches are HPs. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

These are non-manageable switches, not configurable thus no IP. You should be able to plug it in to your home wiring, however, if you don?t have a server or dhcp server you will have to assign IP addresses to your computers and other network devices manually.
