The reason that the video card is because it is not removeable; It is a chip on the motherboard. There may be a chipset update, but if the video chip is inoperable, you would have to replace the motherboard.

The screen can be replaced but there are no upgrades available because the TC1100 is so old that there were no touch screens available back then and the interface would be much different than anything in production today. If you wanted a replacement, used would be the way to go.

Hi, well I have found out that NO you cannot "Upgrade" either the screen, or the Video card. This is due to the BIOS, not being able to be upgraded to allow for this to happen. And HP do NOT support anything like this either :(

    I just got one of these and the screen is black, ( I thought I saw the start up screen really dark for a minute) It doesn't work with another monitor. Is it the backlight or something else?

I changed the operating system now i have windows 7 on the compaq tc1100 and now i can not use the wireless how can i fix this??


Access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=ca&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=376810&lang=en&cc=ca

and you'll see that no device-drivers for Windows 7 are available from HP.

This might mean that HP has submitted the device-drivers for your wireless adapter to Microsoft.
If so, try: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and do a search for "optional hardware updates".
If there is a device-driver, Windows Update will offer it for downloading/installing.

Tc1100 Blank Screen


You have identified your problem/fault by plugging in an external monitor and the image is OK. This proves the video card is OK and the fault could be the inverter or most likely the CCFL lamp.
The flickering screen indicated the CCFL lamp is faulty, it is a mini fluro tube which provides the back-light to the LCD. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. It could be faulty and it is easier to replace.

Could be a bad ram chip as video uses the system board ram for video. You will have to crack the case and swap the ram for a known good stick. Be very careful!
Unfortunately the onboard video card may be bad, usually the problem.
I could crack it and check it for you, you pay shipping. I have the RAM.
Contact me at brianrosshill@aol.com with "TC1100 repair" in the subject line.
I love the machine and you shouldn't have to pay a fortune to get an opinion.
I don't offer this service to any other group, machine or etc. Just the tc1000 and tc1100.
I'll answer your email and suppl contact info. I've been into several of these machines, no worries Mate.
