Having problems with your HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook ?

No power; Mother Board is bad? Is there RE-call on this MB board? Exactly two years it went down! It did run very hot. Will it really cost about $700.oo? Do I need to take HP to legal? I can buy another brand of laptop for less than repair! Help............Thanks,


Answers :

Yup, it will be cheaper to buy a replacement (probably) than to try to replace the motherboard. There is an excellent chance you can put the old laptop drive in an external box with a USB cable to your new laptop.

You might want to see if the power supply is still working before you buy another laptop. Any volt meter will check it. Often a power jack can get damaged which is tedious to fix but cheaper than a motherboard replacement. Also make sure to try to boot it without a battery installed.
