This is a bit unusual, but I'd like to give it a try anyway.
I have a customer's Touchsmart 600. It is locking up. Sometimes it will run for several hours, sometimes for about 6 minutes. There is no pattern to it at all. I ran all kinds of diagnostics on it and could not find anything wrong. I changed memory chips and it still locks up. I even reinstalled Windows and it locks up during the installation process. It appears the processor is on its way out. I looked for a replacement processor and I can't find a new one and I don't want to replace it with a used one. The customer doesn't want to do that either.
This happened about a week out of warranty and HP will do nothing, other than charge $450 to repair it.
So the customer is resigned to replacing the computer, but he would like to be able to use the monitor from it. I tore it down to see if it would be possible to adapt somehow and I don’t see a way. But if anyone out there has any insights, I'd sure appreciate any help offered.
What he wants to do is buy a tower and use the monitor from the Touchsmart for his monitor. Is there any way to do that?
