Touchsmart tx2z Screen Flickers and Freezes

I am having problems with my HP Touchsmart tx2z laptop. When the power cord is plugged in, the screen will flicker random black horizontal lines of various sizes across the screen. The computer will work but it slows and freezes often, and finally the entire screen will go black after I've been on for awhile. It'll appear to still be running, but the screen goes black. It's hard to tell sometimes if it has crashed or if it's still running, because sometimes if I wait long enough the screen will come back, and other times it never does. It only seems to do this when the power cord is plugged in. I recently had to replace the original HP cord because it frayed, but it still seems to do this even with a new (generic) cord.

By the sound of it you have a BIOS problem. This can happen with a bad flash of the bios HP automatically updates the system if you have not shut off that feature. You may have recieved a bad update. It may also be youre power supply. Check to see if your power supply has the full voltage if you have a Voltmeter. Try reflashing the Bios if you can and make sure to check the "clear nv ram" feature if available during the flash process.
Hope this helps... Dale

We have an HP laptop and is flashing three times when i try to turn on the laptop.. previously it had went completely black in themiddle of using it and now won't turn on at all what does this...

Hello, this problem can mean the processor is faulty. Normally when the processor gets faulty or destroyed the light blinks but doesn't come on at all. I suggest you take it to the tech department for diagnostics. Hope this solution is helpful. Have a wonderful day.

The lightning bolt on my hp touchsmart tx2 flashes

that means your laptop has no power so your battery is dead which would explain why it shut down on you, and that means its not charging so it would either be the adapter or the port on your laptop

Fingerprint reader icon does not appear

I assume your just bought your laptop recently. If this is the case, the finger scanning application could be not yet install on your new laptop. Check in one of the CD's included on your laptop package if the installer for Finger Scanning is there and have it installed.
