Question about Everex Computers & Internet

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!

Lost my adapter (65w), bought a universal laptop adapter but it is rated at 90w. will this work for my everex stepnote nc1502?


Correct voltage Greg?

Then yes it will work

More Wattage means more Amperage.

Same voltage, but more Amperage

(Voltage times Amperage = Wattage )

KEEP the inside of your laptop CLEAN
Make sure you occasionally replace the Thermal Paste on the Processor (CPU), and Thermal Pad on the graphics chipset. (GPU)

Service Manual for disassembling the laptop?
Everex is out of business (To my knowledge), and I see no service manual available.

I should be able to step by step you through it, anyway; if you desire

My everex stepnote has numerous problems. The main one is that the screen will not come on, even though the system seems to be running (at least it sounds that way). Another problem is with the wireless...


ok, the screen going blank may be your inverter going bad. i do not know about the wireless issue. and the sluggishness of windows is due to the fact that your computer isnt really powerful enuf for vista.

Oper. sytem will not load w/ 2 Gb upgrade only w/ 1Gb and original 512 in an everex nc1502 stepnote


Is your "2GB upgrade" one memory-stick, or two?
If it is one, then it's possible that the motherboard does not support so much RAM on one stick.
If it is two, then remove one stick, and try.
If it still fails, then remove that stick, and try the other stick.
If it still fails, then try your original 512KB stick.
If it still fails, then try your original 1GB stick.

Make sure it is getting enough airflow underneath. Laptops generate a lot of heat that must be removed.

Whate kind of wireless 802.11b or g is in the Everex Step Note NC1502R ?


Not sure what the chipset is that it uses, but Everex host the wireless lan driver for this particular laptop on their support site at: http://www.everex.com/support/nc1502/nc1502_downloads/nc1502_downloads.htm

The download is 2.5mb and should not take too long.  When it has downloaded, double click to install.
