I have had my tx2000 for approx 15 months. I figured the one year warranty would be good enough, it wasn't. Just a short two weeks ago, my wireless card stopped working. Letting the computer run diagnostic tests to find out what was wrong lead to me being prompted to reinstall the "missing" driver software. The drivers for my wireless card were reinstalled, and I was able to happily surf the internet once again. That night I turned of my computer, and went to bed. The next morning I woke up only to find the same prompt to reinstall the driver software. Something was up... I re-downloaded, re-installed, and this time, my wireless didn't work. Fast forward a couple days and this is what I have found out: 1) This is not just a wireless card problem, the root of the problem comes from the heat of the computer, which in turn causes shorting of connections. Future problems can include; issues with suspend/sleep modes, computer display problems, and even total failure of the motherboard. 2) HP has a few other computers that have this problem, and they recognized it (albeit after doing some shady BIOS updating; which only increased the fan speed, and delayed the problem past warranty expiration). HP extended the warranty of a few specific computers (details can be found here) 3) This is a common problem among tx1000s, even other tx2000s like mine have been affected (around 50ish people have posted about this problem on HP's own support forums (here). Perhaps even the tx2's harbor this problem, although it might be a few months until anyone finds out about it. 4) If your computer is out of warranty, you are out of luck. The cost of getting the "burnt" out bits replaced is around $500. Even if you pay to get the parts replaced, it is likely you will have problems again several months down the road. There is hope though, I have found one case where HP has fixed a tx2000 (here) out of warranty and at no cost to the owner (after around 3 months of dealing with the various tiers of HP tech support). 5) I would recommend that if you have one of these computers (and you still have the 1 year warranty), please extend it by at least one year. Save yourself the trouble of having a brick of a computer, HP won't do anything about it. Here is my thread on the HP support forums.
