Hi, everybody! I have a problem that maybe you can help me with.
I have a HP Pavilion Tx2510us, 19 months of happy and flawless use... until now. I turned it off and now it just refuses to start. I tried several different ways of turning it on, every troubleshooting step I could find online, nothing worked and it is basically unresponsive.
Ok, now, as for the troubleshooting steps I tried, I removed: the laptop's battery, both memories (I even tried leaving one out, proved both slots, both memories) and the motherboard battery - Once, one at a time, to test the laptop's response and once all tree at the same time, just to be sure. And I also tried connecting an external monitor too... same story it doesn't boot.
When I press the power button the LED lights blink (the one besides the caps lock key and the End [num lk] key , the rest of the keyboard lights stay on and so does the fan. But it doesn't boot.

There are a list of blink codes in the table below.
Has this helped you identify the issue?

I have the same computer but the problem is I get codes 303 & 305, hard drive overheated. I have replaced the harddrive 5 times. I had trouble with warranty replacement on the first drive, it burned up 6 months after I purchased this computer. the second drive went after 6 months and so on. I am thinking of replacing the motherboard but it seems that would not resolve the issue. Since HP is not going to recall this computer to fix the rpoblem, I guess I will replace it with someone else's computer design, one that does not get overheated.
