I discovered a repair for the problem with the TX 1000 blue screen and loss of wireless. You must remove the motherboard,. First remove keyboard then slide out CD tray then remove top cover. You should have a reasonable mechanical skill do do this. After you remove the motherboard apply a liberal amount of heat on the NVIDIA chips there is one on the top of the board and one under the heat sink assembly which is very small. After you apply the heat hold the chip down for about one minutes to allow it to reseat. You must also clean the old cooling paste off the chips and the cooling sink. I had to scrape mine off with a knife. Replace the rubberized heat sink pad with a copper shim you can make from a thin piece of copper or get one off Ebay. Apply a LIBERAL amount of new heat sink paste then put back together. If all else fails you can replace the motherboard which is reasonably priced, google it the HP part number is 441097-001 also there are many listed on Ebay also showing repair facilities for about $100. Good Luck your repair may be as simple as a couple of hours work, or send in for a inexpensive repair

Go to this website below and see if it applys to your problem. It seems that a lawsuite as been filed and settled with the company that made a faulty part and and the computer companies their computer part affected. The aggreement has been made. HP & Compaq had several computer series that this lawsuite affected and one computer model was the Tx1000. Hope this help.
