That simply shows that the drivers u are installing might not be able to work with vista, try download a good driver from a better source for your OS

Hp pavillion tx200 running vista shuts down a few minutes after startin up

2018 and still running DEAD VISTA.
all support is gone on XP and VISTA now.
google and hp says no TX200, TX2000 yes
did you skip 1 zero? if yes why, that make help 1000x harder.
shut down has nothing to do with hdd cleanups ever.
nor the broswer, ever
its power issue, only.
i presume you forgot to say LAPTOP?
answering for TX2000 now a laptop.
the all time #1 reason for any laptop to shut down by self.
is overheating
ever clean all lint out of this old PC>?
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC
this is listed on HP unsupported page, all TX are now dead PCs.
it is 10 years old, 2008 made , mostly.

test 1; does the fan run? are all vents clear.
test 2: does PC stay running with that old shorted huge battery removed. running on AC pack only. does it?
if it does not run at all the AC pack is dead. now.
if it runs great the battery is bad as all are this old. no battery lasts for 10 years, bringing us now to battery #2
test 3: get that old RTC coin cell out of the PC now. its NO GOOD.
if not cured yet.
my guess is you have things inside or attached to PC (USB:)
that are shorted.
all models in any PC up to 10 modules of any kind can in fact short.
if they do the PSU (regs) overload and the SHUTS OFF
the prevents fire and prevents need for silly fuses.
in fact the regs are smart fuses (dynamic) inside.

easy so far, can you get this far?

Hp pavillion tx2000 entertainment notebook pc. initial o/s vista home premium. Problem with cursor drags automatically. whole system scan with kaspersky antivirus. problem not solved. o/s changed to...

You meant the built in mouse pad fails.

why not use wired USB mouse, now, and end the pain ,
then with a working mouse , get the HP driver from HP
and install it from HP. for W7. (luck)
at HP, fixyah is not HP, not at all..
that will work, if not driver issue, then buy a new pad. oops none are sold new.
after 10 years. so that leaves what, used pads sold on ebay..'
HP dot com. your support page. (seems to be collapsing from age)10years old it does. by hp rules.
even the tx2500 series is 10 years old now.

does your service tag show tx2000 , that is series
not telling the service tag number gets you wrong facts.
wrong drivers, so next time show the full model

try the support assistant there.?

here are the full list of tx2000 series PC
see ,its not just one PC, we need the full model p/n to answer
with any accuracy at all.

there is no guarantee at all any w7 driver exist. for your mouse pad but many times the Vista version will work
you lost that now, i you dont have the install disks from HP.
or the pad is simply bad.

we have tools here to scan your pad chips to see the makers
name and then get driver from them direct. after HP drops support.
