Question about Everex StepNote NC1500 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop is on but no screen and no response to any actions

The computer is on, the fan blows, the wireless indicator is lit, but it does nothing. It charges, however, it doesn't indicate its charging. Stepnote 1502 less than a year old. If I could get something on screen, it would help. Plugged into Different monitor but still nothing but black screen.

    tried that when hooked up to other monitor but nothing. It just sounds like its on and does nothing. When the problem first arose, it would take a long time to boot then go black and nothing. Now it doesn't appear to boot but sounds like it is.

    Hard drive only lights up a quick flash when first turned on, then nothing from it. doesn't really sound like booting now that I listen closer, just fan on.thinking hard drive or motherboard but thought I would definately get motherboard singing if it was motherboard.

It does not sound like inverter has failed because you are using the correct method to switch screens, if the hard drive indicator is flashing/blinking that seems ok too.
latops are supposed to beep when there is hardware failure to give us engineers an idea of the problem, you haven't mentioned that, but i know there is hardware by the description.
start by taking the ram out, this could be faulty or disslodged and the machine sounds like boot but no display, clean the contacts on the ram with a pencil eraser (they work best) and dust off the rubber with a dry clean cloth, make sure there is no build up of dust there the ram slots, if you have more than 1 ram module try them one at a time.
see what happends

keep me informed please


regards

    remove the battery and try on AC power only, if still no joy remove hard drive, try again, if still no joy after that the problem would seem to much more serious

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

Sometimes it takes longer than two hours. Leave it plugged in overnight if you can. The indicator light should go off after fully charging.

I have a problem with asus eee 901. I've just bought it. It had linux, but it was changed into windows xp. Since it had been fully charged only once I was using it on battery and setting it up with new...


Remove the battery for a couple of minutes while the unit is not plugged into the a/c adaptor. Reinstall the battery, plug the unit into the a/c adaptor, and see if it will boot up.

Try to plug in an external monitor on laptop to check if there is a problem with your LCD.

Plug in the external monitor then boot the computer. If still nothing happens try removing the battery and the adapter, let it rest for a minute then plug in only the adapter and try to boot up with out the battery.

Hope this helps.

Purple light


The purple (majenta) light usually means it is in pairing mode. Is it possible that the button is stuck pressed in??


PUT HEADSET IN PAIRING MODE

1. Ensure the headset is turned off (indicator light not blinking and headset boom is closed)
2. Press and hold the Call button. After about 4 or 5 seconds, the indicator light becomes steadily lit in magenta
3. Release the Call button and immediately open the headset boom. The indicator light remains lit in magenta.

If the indicator light is flashing in blue or not steadily lit when opening the
headset boom, repeat steps 1 through 3
