NO BOOT
« on: August 28, 2005, 05:06:22 PM »
Hey everyone.  Well I'm working on a client's X1000. The problem is that it won't boot about 90% of the time. When you push the power button, It "turns  on" but theres no display, and no beeps. The lights come on, but thats it.  Occaisonally, it will boot properly, and loads up XP like normal.  I've cancelled out the LCD being the problem by connecting an external monitor, but to no avail. I've also tested the Memory and that seems to be OK too.  Has anybody had this problem or know about it? I just want to know what is wrong or maybe get a better idea of what kind of problem I'm facing. Any help would be great, Thanks!

It could be the graphics card.  I know that others have had the graphics card get too warm and warp.  Supposedly if you push on 6-7-Y keys, it will hlep to reseat it and it will work again.  This usually requires a replacement video card or the fix that another use at the other forum offered.  Basically if you can find something non-conductive to force the video card to stay connected, that could fix it.  I would give that a try and report back.  If it's under warranty, call HP!  If not, I would try one of these home solutions.
