I'll start with the TL;DR part:
- HP TX1000's WiFi stopped working one day. Then it began to (suddenly) turn itself off.
- When "cool", it turns on and I get bios but it turns off after 5-6 seconds.
- If I turn it on right afterwards I'd get no bios/post or anything, just a black screen (not even backlight at all) and it would sit like that for any amount of time, it won't turn off suddenly. Fan is at full speed but no overheating/hot air coming out of the vent can be felt though.
- If I turn it down and let it that way for about 10-15 minutes it'd turn on again (with bios and everything) but it'd turn itself off after 5-6 seconds again and it goes on like that.
Is this a temperature related problem? Would cleaning it completely solve this issue? or is it broken already?
- I cleaned everything thoroughly and replaced the thermal compound
- Now it turns on everytime correctly but shuts down at boot.
Here's a video that pictures this issue in its latest state: HP TX1000 Series boot failure
It turns out that it wasn't overheating, the problem was a faulty BIOS or motherboard that would make the computer turn off itself just at the moment it tries to boot from any device.
