Default HP TX1000 series mess!!

Hey guys/gals
Just wanna share an on going story that I've come across with HP pavilion tx1000 series laptop. A customer told me he was having some problems with his HP Pavilion tx1000 laptop.

The problems are:

(1) Black screen but the lights on the system comes on.

(2) No wifi even though the laptop came with built in wifi

(3) I realized the system is not even recognizing the wifi card (but will come on whenever it feels like once in a while)

(4) After pressing the power button the system stays on for 3 seconds then cuts off

(5) sometimes it just would not come on at all

After doing some research I've notice that tons off users with the same laptop has the exact problem. Some users had warranty with HP but the problem still persist after HP replace the motherboard. HP is fully aware of the problem to that specific series but fails to do anything about it. There is even a lawsuit against NVIDIA for faulty GPU's in those models http://www.nvidiasettlement.com/


I will like to know if anybody has a solution to this problem. I've come across some ideas but they're all temporary fix. Has anybody found a permanent fix?? I'am even looking into Re-balling http://www.youtube.com/user/reply4reply

Here are the links:

This topic has been covered quite a lot here with these HPs. The non-unanimous consensus is that all known fixes are temporary, including system board replacement as they fail eventually as well. You may find some anecdotal evidence for long-term fixes but these seem to be the exception.
