You have covered all the correct trouble shooting steps and I will confirm whet you probably already know and that is the system board or the video card specifically is at fault.

 You can get the solder reflowed on the video chip, but that is just a temporary solution. E-bay has lots of MoBo's for sale. Make sure the part numbers match and that will be found underneath the RAM. You can substitute a newer MoBo with better components, but then you HP recovery DVD's may not work.


 Here's a guy that has the correct machine for a reflow or a permanent solution is to reball the card with new solder.


 It's unusual for the HDX to have this problem, are you gaming on it allot and causing it to run hot ?
