    It usually turns out to be
    the fan, either failed (least likely) or chock full of dust. Most of
    their units place the fan sucking staright up close to the bottom
    louvres. Lap use or even setting on a table can start sucking up stuff
    into the fan. Isn't long before the low power fan doesn't run properly.
    With the temp utility you can watch, under compute load, how fast the
    temp does rise. Very rapid. Newer units have a sticker placed directly
    below the fan blocking the direct suction louvres to prevent the fan
    from sucking debris into it. It then pulls the air from all over the
    case and works fine keeping the fan relatively clear of dust and such.



    You will have to check your fan and as mentioned above clean it out and see if it does resume full speed operation.

    Best products to avoid your laptop being overheated.

    1) The Vantec LapCool3 USB Notebook Pad is a valuable attachment
    that sits under your laptop to draw air away from the fans on the
    bottom. It silently removes hot air from your system, and attaches to
    your computer with a USB cable

    2) For a super-quiet and contemporary look, you'll want the Antec Notebook Cooler.
    Quality materials and the heat-resistant coating make this one built to
    last; you'll barely hear the fans on this model, and it also uses the
    USB port for power. An added bonus is the three-year warranty.

My averatec computer makes a whirring sound


That sounds as if the cooling fan is working very hard. This normally means that the cooling ducts are full of dust and other rubbish. You may be able suck most out with a vacuum cleaner or blast with an air duster. Failing that, it's taking it apart (you will need a manual) to clean the heat sink area around the cpu.

unplug power supply remove battery and let set for a bit.replace battery and try to turn it on..you probally have corrupt the hard drive..if all indicator lites are flashing then its working and maybe the screen has been corrupt or broke.if you have a desk top monitor around you can hook it up to your laptop and see if you can see anything on that,and if so you can go in and check all the drivers are working properly especially the monitor and graphics..yes a desk top screen will hook rite up to a laptop.

Blank screen


Look very closely at the screen when its on, see if you can see a faint image in which case the ccfl tube in the screen will be dead. Also try the laptop on an external monitor.
Otherwise if you know what your doing, remove the battery, hard drive, optical drive, all but one stick of ram, modem/wireless card and try again. There is a small chance it will be the cpu or motherboard.

Averatec 2300 laptop will not power on.


We need to determine if the problem is your graphics chip or if the laptop really isn't booting. Do you get any kind of hard-drive activity light when you boot it up?
