Question about Everex PC Desktops

1 Answer

Everex stepnote NC1502 dies randomly, but less often with the access covers removed. With the covers in place (even loosley) the systems will NEVER boot but the wifi radio light stays lit. With the covers off it will boot roughly 70% of the time but will hang after a random interval from 0 to 30 minutes - usually in about 2 but we've been lucky a couple of times. Of course, this started happening exactly on the day AFTER the warranty expired (11/20). I thought it was an overheat problem, but even after being off all night, the hang-time is generally random (even sitting at the BIOS screens - unless the covers are on as described previously).

Without getting too technical, you have a short. The back covers are shielded for a reason, and a portion of the metal may be touching the board itself. "Duh, I know" is probably your response, but take a peek also at the edges of the casing... are their any soldered connections that are loose? The unwanted connection may not be to the board, but perhaps the USB port or headphone jack. Crazy? Maybe, but I've seen sillier "bad connections" that have caused more trouble!

Hope this helps!

Is it safe to remove the updates on my laptop i have over 300 on it

The updates are designed to protect your operational system from malware and virus attacks, removing them may cripple your system, I don't recommend it. But if you have programs you are no longer using that would be a good start.

Blinking power led

Common error of RAM malfunction. Try changing the RAM, or upgrading to a bigger size. Ex; 1gb to 2gb or 1gb to 4gb. If the system you are using only operates on paired memory then make sure you get two of the same RAM cards.

Step by step
1. Shut down the PC and unplug.
2. Give the system about 1 min to completly powerdown.
3. Remove case cover.
4. Locate the RAM slots.
(Make sure you ground yourself by touching the case frame)
5. Remove the old RAM cards and install the new ones.
6. Place case cover back.
7. Plug system and power up.

(System should reboot with no problems)

How do I access the boot menu on an Everx gPC?

Once you power on the computer, and while the Everex splash screen is on, start tapping the F8 key (assuming this is a windows computer). That should give you the windows boot options. If this is not what you are looking for be more specific in your post. For example: what OS are you using? Is the system dual boot?

Hope this helps

Disconnect the ac adapter and take out the battery. Next press the power button and hold it for 20 seconds. Then, connect the ac adapter and attempt to turn it on.

If it turns on, reinstall your battery and try again. If it does not turn when you reinstall the battery then it's your battery.

If it does not turn on without the battery, then it's either your ac adapter or your dc jack. You can check the ac adapter at a local pc shop or electronics store. If it's the dc jack then you have the option of ordering it on-line and replacing it yourself or have someone else do it. Good luck and let me know how it went.

Without a setup disc there's not much you can do other than take it to a repair shop.

Alternatively do you know anyone with a setup disc?

You'll also need to download the drivers for your m/c from the makers website.
