Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook

1 Answer

Won't start at all

Hello to all and any who can help my poor little computer.

I purchased my hp pavilliontx1000 just under two years ago (June28th) I still have another year for my warranty to expire.

However, unable to take my laptop back to best buy (as they are currently closed for the night) I would really appriciate some help.

I was watching a streaming video online (a tv show) and I paused the show to let it finish buffering, because it kept stopping every 5 seconds. I let it sit for about two mins and by the time I looked back at the screen, my computer had just shut down. During this time I did have the battery out and the computer was plugged in so as to not kill my battery life (I had been using my laptop all day so I just left it plugged in all day without the battery) After it shut off, I tried to turn the computer back on but it wont do anything. No lights will come on, no screen, no nothing. It is not making anysound, no fan is on, it just won't do anything at all. I tried to put the battery back in and kept it plugged in. Then I tried to turn it on again but still nothing at all. The little lightning bolt light to show that the battery is charging is not even coming on. Everything is just black and nothing happens.
I let it sit for a little while incase it had overheated during the course of the day but when I went back half an hour later, it still would not turn on. It just won't do anything at all.
I don't know what to do and I have some work that I have to get off my laptop for class tomorrow.

Can anyone PLEASE help me??????

It can be anything from a faulty power jack, to a fried motherboard. Take it back to best buy as soon as you can, and let them take a look. Nothing more you can really do.

I have model ED5KVEXV001, Serial S03230051 that was purchased about one year ago and given to me as a gift. Is this still under warranty. The front part of the ice bin frosts up and blocks the ice shoot....

You provided the following information: Brand: Whirlpool Model Number: ED5KVEXV001 Serial Number: S03230051 The information supplied indicates that the refrigerator's year of manufacture is either 1970 or 1980So I doubt if it is under warranty.You might want to turn down the termperature a little bit and see if the problem goes away. But you will need to defrost the area first to be sure.

But if it is a crushed ice shoot and not a cube shoot then it is just one thing that is a poor design.

HP V5061u Digital Camcorder wont go off of 'Test Function'

That's it the camera is broken. It's like there is a timer within counting down the time to breakdown and it starts right after you purchase it. Never buy an HP product this company is a joke. There is no help when you run into a problem with their product and there product are not reliable so you will need assistance at some point. I have owned my camera under 2 years and just started using it 6 months ago and now it decides to break down on some test screen that no one has a clue to get passed

Once you get the camera working again by the "shuffling technique", don't connect it to the computer again. Instead, purchase an inexpensive card reader and use it to download pictures from now on. typrice_31.jpg

TomTom map of Poland is hopeless. should get a free update on a new device. There are a lot of new roads in Poland and the device which I bought 2 months ago does not take it into account at all. Can't...

You will only get a free update on a new device if you install tomtom home on your computer and login withing the first 2-3 months of purchasing your device. Also, if you purchased a device that is "refurbished" or "recertified" then you do not get this free update and your map can be up to about a year and a half old. In this case, you would have to purchase a map update. To update you will have to install TomTom Home on your computer (download from and login. You can typically purchase one update for about 45 USD or purchase a year of updates for just a little more (like 59.99 USD). A "year of updates" gives you an updated map each quarter for one year. I don't know that I would have bought a TomTom for use outside of North America or the UK. Sorry.

Hello there, My DV6000 hp got a prob with the battery. I tried to run the battery health checker, once it showed me "poor" rating, othertime "Invalid". I would really appreciate your assistance in this...

HP had a recall on certain batteries a while ago if I remember correctly, so if you check their site for defective models, or which models of laptop that the defective batteries were shipped with, You MAY be eligible to get a new battery if it's still under recall.

I hope this helps.

Grinding fan noise HP dv6 1130TX

First, if you just purchased the unit, you should have the problem fixed by HP under warranty.
HP offers a extended 1 year from the date of purchase. Thats 2 years on startup problems.
You are correct on the noise comming from the fan.
This will not go away and may get worse.
If the fan slows down or stops when needed, the CPU will go for a walk.
Email HP customer care and log your problem.
Make sure you have reg. your unit first.

Hp Pavillion ze4900

the way things sound, you definately need a new hard drive and battery. as for saving the information, thats a little dicy. its more than probable an expert can, but it may turn out to be difficult. As for where to send it, i'd say take it to the closest best buy and they will be able to help you amptly.
You will only have to upgrade to vista if you buy a new computer as a whole. you can still stay with 2000 if thats what you prefer.

HP Media Center Desktop w/XP

Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
