Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook
For the past couple of days, my laptop hasn't been starting up. When I try to turn it on, all of the lights turn on momentarily but then go out.
When I contacted HP they said it was the AC adapter, but I tried using it on another computer and it worked fine. I also tried using another battery that has a full charge, but it still wouldn't start up.
I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO ALL THE START UP MOMENTARILY PROBLEMS YOU TURN IT ON FAN RUNS LIGHTS ON FOR A SEC THEN SHUTS DOWN. ITS THE NVDIA CHIP.
IT MAY SOUND DUMB BUT IT WORKED FOR ME OK
GRAB THE RIGHT PALM OF YOUR HAND AND PUT ALL THE PRESSURE ON THE AREA SURROUNDING THE ENTER BUTTON AND PUSH DOWN AND TURN IT ON. IF IT DIDN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THE ENTER BUTTON NOT TOO MUCH TO BREAK IT BUT JUST ENOUGHT AND TURN IT ON. AND UR DONE IT SHOULD BE ON!!!

Actually the power consumption is very high in these kind of notebooks, i suggest you to remove the battery and power chord and press the power button for about 5-10 sec, so that static charges will drained up. after that replace the battery and connect the battery, i will work great. Any time if the same thing happens do the same, i hope this will help u a lot, this treatment is know as power drain,

The solution is to sue them or make them somehow to either refund us or exchange the product all together... changing the motherboard won't fix it, because all motherboards made for this product are defective and will fail to boot sooner or later.
I've made a blog post about this whole issue...

Solution is.......There isn't one!! Unless you can get HP to give you your money back for this defective model that they sold at a premium.
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.

If you have done the power drain(take battery out and unplug pc and hold down pwer for 15 seconds then I would ask what os you are using as this is known for vista users especially when usb port is processing communication. Known solution especially if systems stops at vista screen is to bypass with restore cds that hopefully were made when first got system. known as boot cycle error in vista. hope this helps.

Unfreaking believable. Here's what I did.
I tried the hair dryer method. I blew hot air on it for about 3 minutes when it was upside down. Tried turnin it on and off several time with no dice.
What worked for me, is pressing my heel into the enter key and standing on it with one foot while powering it on.
It sounds crazy, but this worked for me.

After 1year wifi died, but notebook working for a while. Than black screen, same old story like everybody else. I decided, after searching the net, to re flow the GPU with a heat. When I took the HP Pavillion tx1000 apart and removed the cooling from the CPU and GPU I noticed right the way there was a piece of rubber between GPU and cooling! I am surprised nobody mention this before. From my understanding this will stop the heat not transfer it to cooling unit. I Used the cardboard with the hole where the GPU is covered with aluminum. I applied heat to the other side of MB. First I tried with the 100 watt bulb. That did not work. Probably I did not do it for long enough. Than I used heat gun on low for two minutes. That fixed it. I placed a penny on the GPU. I noticed when looking at it, the penny was lifting the cooling unit higher, not level with CPU. So I decided to get a piece of copper plate the right thickness and cut a square piece out of it as big as I could, bigger than a quoter for sure. After assembly I installed Speed fan utility to monitor the temperature. The GPU and CPU stays between 52 and 59 C. I will try to put a load on it later to see what will be the max. temperature. Good luck to all of you!

I cut the yellow cable and I did not see any changes on the fan speed and I can still measure the GPU and CPU temperature, tried a Brazilian penny made of the same metal, didnt put any thermal compound on the top of de GPU and used the old original thermal tape on the top of the coin, later on I changed the order and put the thermal tape on the top of the GPU and the coin on the top of the tape with no thermal compound on the top of the coin, no significant change at all, the temperature did not low. If anybody put a coin and the temp changed for better, please post the temperature before and after placing the coin and explain the method...this is what everybody wants to know....

This is to everyone who owns a TX Series notebook with the GPU issue.
HP is not going to do a recall of this model unless we can generate negative publicity about the matter. I know this may seem somewhat futile, but i urge everyone who has issues with this model to do the following:
1. Write a letter to HP about this issue, and send some forum postings of other customers having the same issue along with the letter. Request that HP do a recall of the entire TX series. They may offer to fix your laptop, but please turn them down as request that they do a recall of the entire TX series.
2. The most important part. Send a copy of your letter to each of the major television network, asking that their investigative team take a look at this issue. Please send your letter to the major networks to stations located in the New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. I would be great if everyone sent a letter to all the major networks in all three cities.
3. This ties in to step 2. Send all letters within a 15 to 21 day period. If we can get 500 letters to one network, i am certain that this story would make the news, and shed enough negative light on HP that they may be forced to do a recall.
4. Copy this post to every Forum that you know has posts about this issue. I will take it upon myself to copy this to as many posts as i can, but it does not hurt to have duplicates.
5. PLEASE send all letters between November 1, 2009 and November 21, 2009.

Same thing happened to me about a week ago. It was a motherboard issue--if it's under warranty they'll fix it and get it back to you in about week.

Had a TX1320, wifi issues after 6 months, dead (motherboard overheat, loose GPU) after 15 ms.
A TX2110 dead with the GPU after 14 ms.
Read and sign these:

EXTREMELY common failure in the TX1000 line. With all *due* respect to others offering their opinions, suggesting a freakin LAWSUIT doesnt address the problem of why the damn think doesnt work. The 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. -Sy
