anyone having problem detecting wireless connection with their tx1000 ?
i have no wireless connection and when i did a system recovery--- it worked for about a week and then it stopped
i took it to a computer repair shop and ask them to fix it, they told me that there are problems to my AMD and nvidia
they told me that there is nothing that i can do and except for sending my labtop into hp or buy a wireless usb?
is that true?

I completely agree. I AM NEVER BUYING ANY PRODUCTS FROM HP EVER AGAIN!!!
I only had this notebook for less than 2 years. First my wifi went bad, after doing a system recovery it worked again for about a couple of days then stopped working. Recently, it's just dead. There's full power when it's turned on but the screen is black. After 10+ try of power cycling, it turned on again but only stayed up for a minute and the screen went black again. I had phone support w/ HP but apparently it turned out to be the biggest frustration that I ever had. You can escalate to the highest of the management team and they absolutely would not do anything for you. They told me that I had a year to report these problems to them b/c the warranty is only for a year... I took it to 3 different local repair stores and as soon as I showed them my notebook, they could already tell me what the problem is... that is b/c everyone who owns this model has this same problem!!

Everyone who owns this model has this same problem? You don't say! First off, tx1000 is a model series, not a model. I have the model tx1410us model which is part of the same tx1000 series and have had none of the problems you are talking about. The only one I could detect so far is that the built-in bluetooth stopped discovering my MS Bluetooth Notebook 5000 mouse recently but I suspect that may be more due to some recent Vista update than hardware issues. Vista was also responsible for a recent problem with the built-in webcam and fingerprint reader which I fixed by removing the bad USB driver that Vista installed. I suspect many of the overheating issues reported are more due to the notebook being used on one's laptop (thus blocking vital air vents on the bottom part of the notebook) than real hardware issues.
My "model" TX1320 has just suffered from the black screen of death. Powers on with lights but no display. It is only 18 months old if that. The majority of its life was spent perched on top of an Antec dual fan cooler plate that is larger than the foot print of the TX it self. PLENTY of cool air flow to the base!! So dont assume that the overheating issue is due to people placing their pc upon their lap. You also did not state how old your tx1410 is. There seems to be a common time of death related to the posted failures of the TX 1000 "series". If yours is older than 18 months and still going strong, thats awesome!! Good for you! But have some sympathy for those of us who shelled out close to $1k or more, (in my case$2k, one for me and one for the wife), for a device that is now useless and not even two years old! If you snoop around the forums enough, you will see that there are many people with issues with this "series" of HP pc's.
Maybe the goverment can start a cash for clunkers program for the TX "series" lol. Just kidding!
Best of luck to all those with TX "series" fatalities. Maybe HP will pull through for us after all.
