I too am a victim of HP's crappy workmanship. I first started losing wireless connectivity and now, like so many others have reported, my TX1308nr will no longer power up. The system tries to start, but immediately shutsdown. HP YOU SUCK! Strap on some balls and do the right thing, recall your crappy laptops and show your customers that you actually care.
I work in IT and after having so many problems, I will NEVER buy another HP product again. I will also advise everyone of my customers and corporate clients to boycott HP products entirely.

We bought six tx1000's not even 2 years ago and 4 out of the 6 have had total motherboard failures. Will not boot, etc... HP will not do anything about it so we will never buy another HP product again.

I just had the same problem. Called Hp and tech said bc the warranty was gone I would have to pay 99 for phone tech support. I was told by the tech this is common problem. If this is common why should i have to pay to walk through this and fix the problem. I called a computer repair place they say it can be fixed for about 250.00. For this price I could purchase a new laptop from a different maker. I bought my daughter a Dell laptop and she has had it for about 4 yrs. and no problem. I live on a military post and will let everyone know how a crappy company they are and will try a boycott at the px against Hp products. Word of mouth will cost more harm than replacing this problem.

i m using the hp tx2000 since last two years.. and just recently i was shocked when my laptop was hanged first on 24th september 2010.. n slowly it got habbituated with hang-ups at every 10 mins after boot..within two days it went dead and is not even able to boot up. As described by everyone i am also facing the same problem of black screen,even if all the lights and fans are on.hp service has recomonded me to replace the mother board .. which is costing too high..for such a computer,after surfing from the net i had diagnosed the problem . that is only with the default NVIDIA chip that is getting deattached when the computer over heats.
as this is a HP company fault so for avoiding more and more unhappy customers company has to recall these FAULTY model TX2000
if anyone can help me in anyway.. please DO REPLAY..

I've been experiencing such symptoms on my tx1416 (won't boot, overheats,wi-fi dead) since August 2010. No doubt this defective chip is in my Canadian model too!

Bought tx1219us couple of years back because of the great concept. Unfortunately very badly engineered and produced, had wifi go then video started glitching, then would not boot up and when it did it kept crashing after a few minutes, paid for new motherboad replacement out of warranty through HP authorized repair, still crashes after all that. With the original purchase price + repairs, I'm into the machine over 2k now. HP really has done a number on the customer here. I'll never NEVER buy HP again. HP = Trash, tell everyone you know. I do. Does anyone really expect HP to make this right? Recall? Too late now HP.

I am a technician and I personally seen many tx 1000 come to get fixed and I know how to fix them for a few months but the heating issue is to great to surpase much more than that. I like HP products but they need to fix some of these issues before I will buy from them. Even if there is no recall I am not understanding why there has not been a modifacation to the GPU or to the heatsink fan I know many customers who would like their tablets fixed and would pay for the modifacation. How many laptops out there have a separate heatsink to the CPU and another to the video chipset. Why has this issue not been resolved.

I have the same problem with my TX1000, behavior is unpredictable, it some times boots after playing with F7 to F12 keys and selecting boot from Notebook hard drive, I tried to use recover after it booted many times, even loaded Vista home Premium in place of Vista Business it came with, but no change in its behavior. I EVEN RELOADED BIOS FROM HP SITE. This is now out of warrantee of 1 year, If many are facing similar problem it is certainly a case for recall.
HP PLEASE NOTE THESE PROBLEMS.
