Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook

To Guest : You have joined the realm of goosed motherboard

Guest, based on what you say you should remove the memory and hard drive and power on to see what happens. Without a hard drive attached the motherboard should still POST (Power On Self Test) and give a memory check or missing device error. If it doesn't post even after you have stripped it back then there is something amiss, possibly the BIOS, CMOS memory, or more likely your motherboard is goosed....

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du0Qd_3wFWM There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty although very rare for sata lead to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Possibly a RAM issue or errors on the hard drive stopping the display driver from working properly. Remove power sources, remove RAM and hard drive. See if you get a display when the power adapter is reconnected. If you do, remove power source and fit RAM, (if not motherboard may be faulty). Repeat and if still working, remove power, fit Hard Drive and boot again.
Assuming your OS is Windows Based;
Reboot and use safe mode run CHKDSK/F and when finished check the drivers.

I do have a problem with my presario M2000 Compaq laptop which whenever i open the laptop, it keep asking me password. Futhermore, my dvd rome cannot response to cd. can u help me. Tq


  1. Disconnect the power cable and any printers, monitors or other peripherals you may have attached your M2000. Lay the laptop face down on a table, with the front of the laptop facing you. Remove the battery by sliding the release latch to the left. The front end of the battery will pop up. Rotate the battery toward the back of the laptop to disengage it from the laptop base.
  2. Locate the hard drive on the right side of the laptop. Remove the two screws holding the hard drive cover in place and remove the cover. The hard drive will have a mylar tab on it to help remove it. Grab the tab and lift up on the left side of the hard drive until it disconnects from the motherboard. Pull the hard drive straight up to remove it from the hard drive bay.
  3. Remove the single screw holding the optical drive in place. Stick the end of a bent paper clip into the disk tray release hole on the optical drive, located on the front of the disk tray. This will eject the disk tray. Grab the tray and slide the optical drive out of the laptop base.
  4. Remove the memory modules. The memory compartment is located in the center of the M2000. Remove the two screws holding the cover in place and remove the cover. Use your fingers to spread the latches on the sides of the memory modules and slide the modules out of the sockets.
  5. Remove the mini PCI card by first removing the last cover on the bottom of the M2000. Remove the screws on the cover and remove the cover to reveal the mini PCI card. Disconnect the white and black wireless antenna cables from the card. Spread the latches on the sides of the card and slide it out of the socket. Disconnect the antenna cables from the clip attaching them to the laptop base.
  6. Remove the keyboard cover and LED board by first removing the two screws in the battery bay. These hold the keyboard cover in place. Flip your laptop over and open it up. Slide a flat-head screwdriver into the notch behind the "F1" key to unlock the keyboard cover. Do the same thing at the "F5," F11," and "Insert" keys. Pull the cover up to remove it. The LED board is under the cover. Disconnect the data cable from the motherboard and remove the two screws holding the board in place. Remove the board.
  7. Remove the keyboard by first removing the four screws holding the keyboard in place. Lift the back end of the keyboard up and tip it over so it is resting face down on the palm rest of your M2000. Disconnect the data cable from the motherboard and remove the keyboard.
  8. 8 Remove the display panel by first disconnecting the video cable from the motherboard. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables from the clips attaching them to the top cover of your laptop. Remove the six screws holding the display panel in place. Lift the display panel off of the laptop base.
  9. Remove the base enclosure by removing the three screws on the top of the laptop connecting the top to the base enclosure. Flip the laptop over and lay it face down with the front toward you. Remove the 18 screws holding the base enclosure in place. Lift the rear end of the base enclosure up until it comes free from the laptop. Once it's free, slide it back to remove it.
  10. Disconnect and remove any remaining components including the speakers, Bluetooth module and USB card. All of them are removed by the same procedure. Disconnect the cables from the motherboard and remove any screws holding the components in place. Lift the components straight up to remove them.
  11. Disconnect the fan cable running from the cooling unit to the motherboard. Remove the three screws holding the cooling unit in place and lift it straight up to remove it. To remove the CPU, turn the locking screw counter-clockwise until it clicks. Grab the CPU by the edges and lift it straight up. Put the CPU in an antistatic bag for safekeeping.
  12. Remove the motherboard by first disconnecting the touchpad cable and remove the five screws holding the motherboard in place. Lift it up by the left side and remove it from the enclosure.
  13. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.rating or voting.

Dell Latitude D810 laptop. When I hit the power button the power light comes on, and within 3 seconds the system shuts off. It will not boot to BIOS. I've tried it with/without a hard drive and...


Try removing the memory, hard drive and battery. With the system plugged in (obviously) see if it will boot. Be sure to remove both sticks of memory. One should be located on the bottom of the system and the other should be located under the keyboard. *NOTE* Once the battery, hard drive and memory have been removed, before you plug the laptop in, press and hold the power button for about 5 seconds. This will drain any remaining power. If your system still does not boot, I would say that they problem is with your motherboard. If the system does power on, shut it down and replace your components 1 at a time until you discover which part is possible defective. Keep in mind that only the motherboard has to be an exact match. Other components that may need replaced such as memory only need to be compatible, they do not need to be from Dell.

My laptop powered down while on battery power because of low battery and when i plug it in and turn it back on, only the back light came on the screen no sound no bios check no operating system startup....


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.
