Hello all, Hoping for a suggestion of what to try for this problem.
The computer abruptly stopped starting up with the power button.
I can turn it on if I press the dvd or circular buttons on the LCD screen. however the laptop fan comes on, the lights flash and hold save the caps lock and light above the end key. They flash continuously.
I can turn the computer off by holding the power button on for 5-10 secs.
I have tried the remove battery, a/c power and wait path, but no solution there.
I pulled the hard drive and it worked in another tx2500.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

tx2500z, purchased on 7/18/08. Tried all recommended methods from HP support and methods posted in youtube, no lucks!
Which really impacts my decision on recommendation of AIX or HPUX at work....

Found solution online somewhere when my Tx2510 would not start anymore. Couldn't beilve it worked. Wrap your computer up with towel or something and leave it on to get super hot (make sure to cover fan) and than after roughly 2 hours turn it off, wait like 10-30 seconds and turn it on. This is only Temp fix. I have to do it like once a month. Sucks.
