I recently found my HP TX2000 while going through somethings. It was packed away due to the black screen after start up. I know a whole slue of things can be wrong. I want to go get it fixed as there is a lot of pictures on the hard drive and getting it fixed would be cheaper than a file extraction, or so I have been told. Plus if I can get it fixed I don't want the hard drive messed with.

Can any of you think of things I can try before spending $150 to get the computer looked at and fixed. I just want an actual start screen to come on when I power up the computer.

Thanks!

Hello Buckeyed Girl,

The solution to your issue may be more simple that what you think.

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck

P.S. If this a buckeye?

If you can hear the fan running, try plugging to an external monitor.

I have been researching the black screen of death for the tx2000

I hear the HDD boot up as well as during boot up the HDD light flickers.

I tried hooking it up into my TV with a computer/VGA cable, I don't know for sure what type of cable I used (I use this cable with my new computer and that one works and we watch movies off the computer that way) anyway hooking the TX2000 to the TV there was no picture (if there was a picture a replacement of the whole screen is recommended).

I am thinking now that my Nividia graphics card might be the issue. I have seen that there is a fix as the computer did not adequately cool the graphics card. The TX2000 is on the list. I am hoping it is as simple as that.
