See the problem from other users on this board. My HP first lost the wireless card and now will not boot up. The hard drive LED flashes 3 times and then stops booting up. All LEDs stay on, but nothing happens. I tried the recovery disk and it will not work. HP support said it was a bad video card.

a known issue on tx1000 series. if you want to fix the problems about dead screen, wireless unappearance and turning off the laptop after short seconds after turning it on by yourself, you may to know this problem come from heating the portion of motherboard just under CPU and GPU and so disconnecting some solders of that area because of incorrect design. for solving this problem you should heat that area to remelt the solders and connect the broken connections. I suggest hot air blow (always used to soldering square ICs) on that area.
wireless card issue is a typical promblem with the Tx1000, first thing is that you changed the operating system and window 7 is unable to pick up the wireless card hardware, and a driver is needed to be installed for the wireless card, which you can find at the Hp site or the broadcom site if you have the broadcom wireless card. Other then that, if nothing works, then try to see if the laptop can locate the wireless card trough the hardware/sound device manager in the control panel. After opening the device manager and scrolling to hardwares and the wireless card is not found, then this is the typical tx1000 wifi mystery promblem. This promblem is associated with the laptop overheating and thus caused the card expansion slot to become defect. This by far is the start of a more promblematic issue that many other tx1000 owner is having. Google "mysterious wifi card on hp tx1000" and there are thousand out there with the same situation.
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 :(
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.
