Update: Got the keyboard working. It booted to the Windows startup screen and then died again. So, it's more serious than just removing and...
I took the CPU off and put it back. Put it all back together and it burst into life!
Great - now all I need to do now is work out why the...
Video removed. Anyone got a copy?
Oh great - so even a new motherboard won't help. Thanks for the update - I'll investigate that.
Just looked it up - the 780g is the graphics chip. I have a memory fault!
So, which chip is the 780 North Bridge?
Right, I've got the motherboard out. There seem to be rubber bits on it and a wire. Will they be OK in the oven? Also, do I have to remove the...
What a good idea. I'll try the oven trick.
My tx2500 finally died. It half died a few months ago when one of the memory slot controllers died. I was able to put a 4gb module in the other...

Yes, but I already have 2gb in one slot. So, can I buy a 4gb SODIMM and use that?
It already has a 2gb SODIMM in one slot. I think that's the maximum. Anyone know differently (can I put a 4gb card in the slot?)
I never switch off my tx2500ea - just put it in standby.
So, the other day, opened the lid and - nothing. Just flashing lights.
To cut a...
I used the drivers and application from Vista. I uninstalled the W7 one and used the HP ones. Worked fine.
So what's wrong with 64 bit? I use that all the time
Fingerprint - I had to uninstall the W7 driver and use the HP one. The fingerprint progrtam wouldn't work with the W7 program.
Rest of it seems...
