Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My computer (HP Touchsmart TX2, p/n FR171AV) is a little over a year old. I was working on it and the page froze up, I then rebooted. It has done this for about a week. I thought maybe I have a virus, so I reformatted my hard drive. Unfortunately this did not work, the problem persisted and has even got worst. Now the final time it froze up I tried to reboot and it will not turn on at all. It act as it is going to run, you hear the fans, but then they shut off and two lights just blink, one on left side of the keyboard and the other on the top of the keyboard. I know a decent amount about computers, but I am stumped on this one. I could really use the help I have a few cnc programs I have wrote on that computer and I need to save them.

Try this David. Gte on your computer and by using the blackberry desktop software back up your phone. Now after doing that get your phone and go to the options menu (The little wrench icon) and look where it says security and click on it. Now if you press the menu button it should give you the option of wiping your handset by doing this it will erase everything off your phone and it will be just like it was when you bought it. Try all the functions and if they work you have a virus if they do not work your phone is bad.

Why is the screen rotation is not working on hp touchsmart tx2 tablet?

what is a tx2, circa 2007 device?
its a very old laptop.
right> super old running XP, right? is it/? or Vista 32?
HP TouchSmart tx2 Notebook PC

no OS stated, what operating system is running,??????
has the OS been upgraded, or changed? we cant guess that.
The Drivers on this touch pad are failing.
if you go to you can get the correct drivers.
but they will ask you for the full model number not just terse tx2

see them here.

there are 4 , classes of TX2

failures like this are software or hardware caused.
if software can be virus infected, that both vista and Xp worse
will be... and endless. pain there.
or someone loaded wrong OS, or wrong drivers.

all that is called OS corrupted, in one form are another.
Id reload the OS using real HP disks.
or try the drivers seen here.

i guessed VISTA 32, if not vista 32, tell HP what it is now.

My hp tx2 tablet pc turns into safe mode and running so slow

Follow these guidelines:

1. Turn a power-off computer on or reboot a running computer.

2. Quick press the F8 key on keyboard before Windows starts, after hearing a beep sound you will be taken to Windows Advanced Options Menu instead of the normal loading page. If it doesn't work on the first try, just reboot and try again. And Select normal loading option.

Fix windows internal errors and corrupt registry to avoid such types of errors in future. I would suggest to use system utility tool Reginout.

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

The computer is froze. I like to know what to do to reboot the computer.

you can press and hold your CPU power button for at least 10 seconds. This will clear you hard memory cache eve if it is froze. Don't unplug it as it may damage your RAM as well as your mainboard.
