    I also have a 7100 series. It stops working for a long period time with same symptoms then sometimes after minutes and sometimes as long as a month, it will start working again perfectly fine. Right now its off and I sit deperately pulling the battery, running the battery dead and disconecting the power and turning it off and on in hopes of it starting again.



    Sometimes this works but hasnt fro several days now. Is it worth fixing and paying to repair mother board or is this a problem that will happen again within a year or so?



    Thanks'

    the previous complaints of averatec 7100 problems were predecessors to
    my ultimate problem...now when i plug my laptop power supply in the box
    has it's little green light to let me know that power is good, then as
    soon as the plug touches the receptacle on my notebook, what happens?
    well as far as the notebook is concerned-NOTHING happens. but my power
    supply box then flashes it's litlle indicator light...in orange! i
    think i need a tear down manual with the voltage specs, schematic, or
    whatnot.

I have a 7100 also and I can get the screen to come up sometimes by holding the Delete button when I push the power button... I'm still looking for the fix and/or a service manual, but I can still use the computer.

I tried to turn my laptop averatec sl5110H -01 on m it does not boot up , the power light is on but the screen stays black. No running the window xp


You need to give some more details.For example,are any other lights on?Is there any noise from the fan, or from your hard drive? when you say yourpower light is on, do you mean just the one that says you are plugged into AC? Or do you mean that your system light is on?
If you can hear fan or HDD, you can tryconnecting your laptop to any monitor, to see if you get a display. Also one of yourF keys + Fn can turn off your screen.Make sure you did not turn it off accidently. If you can get a display on a monitor, and your screen is not switched off,you need either a new screen power inverter, or a new screen. If you can't get an external display, the fault is almost certainly with the motherboard.Unfortunately,that would need replacing and may not be worth doing.

Fan for my acer 3690 spins, green light is on but no display show


Look to See If Your Hard Drive/Data Indicator Light is on and blinking (or solid)..
You need to try and hook up a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port.. Reboot with the External Screen Plugged Into The Laptop.. If You See Windows Booting From The External Monitor - Then You Have A Faulty Screen, or possibly a faulty Display Cable.. Most Likely The Screen Has Failed Though... Also, Hold The Screen Up To A Bright Light while its powered on, You Might have just lost the backlight and have a display still, It will be REAL faint but holding it up to a light and looking to see if you can see Windows Running..

If No Display on the External Monitor When Connected To The Laptop, Then You Have GPU/Graphics Failure, Due To Thermal Damage.. This Is A Motherboard Issue Because The Chips Are Integrated.. A ReBake/ReFlow Of The Chips Will Get Your Video Back, Or Replacing The Motherboard.....

Computer does not boot, blue on light lites up but


Now when you say blue power light, what are the rest of the lights doing, does the hard drive light flash, does the fans turn on, does the hard drive make it's spinning noise, if so you may just have a bad LCD inverter which is very common and about a 40$ part. you can test this by trying to hook the laptop up to an external monitor and see what happens.

Is my averatec laptop motherboard died?


tony,
try to shine a flashlight at the screen while it boots and see if you see anything at all. if you do, your backlight has gone out and you will need to replace the lcd screen. if you get nothing try plugging in an external monitor to the port on the side of the laptop, if you get something on it, then you need the lcd replaced. if you get no beeps indicating failed hardware then there is a good chance that your motherboard has a more serious issue if no screens are coming up.

How to connect to external monitor?


You need to determine the fault first.
Can you determine exactly where the boom came from (the adapter or laptop)?
When you turn on your laptop does the LED lights indicating that there is power to the laptop and you can hear the hard drive spinning as well as the fan?
Do you know the power adapter is OK (you can test it with a multimeter)?
If the laptop is dead then the external monitor is of no use.

The laptop normally has a blue video output connector, usually on the back edge of the laptop where you can connect an external monitor or a data projector. When a monitor or projector is powered up first and then the laptop the display goes to the external video first. You can switch between the laptop screen and external video by clicking the blue Fn + F4 function keys.

Computer problem/averatec 7100 series notebook


Your are in Hibernation mode. Hold the power button down for at least five seconds and then remove external power and then your battery. Re install your battery and attach external power and power back on. You should be alright after that.

This is a know issue with some laptop models running either Windows XP or Vista.

Hope this has helped or fixed ya.
