Question about Everex StepNote VA4103M Notebook

1 Answer

Everex VA4103M BIG problem.

Ok so I got my laptop from a freind and it had viruses so I reinstalled windows vista from my moms dell disk. I had it working and everything was fine for awhile and now everytime I start it up the lights will come on but the screen wont pop up. I know it works because everynow and then the screen will come up. I ussualy have to do a redneck solution and beat it until it turns on. but then the slightest bump or movement will make it shut off again. I have noticed when the screen does come up the WLAN light is off and when it doesn't come on the WLAN light is on. Also the L key is missing and you have to press pretty hard to get it to work. I'm thinking the constant hard pressing damaged something? Please Help its a great laptop and was cheap to buy I just wana fix it and get to my gaming!!!

It sounds like a short in the internal wire that connects the monitor to the base of the laptop. my mum has the same problem, minus the virus.....and she bought it with vista on it. so i could be wrong. it could just be a vista problem, i've never heard of it associated with any other microsoft/windows operating program

I have a Everex StepNote laptop VA4103M. to hard drive went out. I bought a new one but when I went to install the software from the cd that came with the computer it was corrupt. Would not work at all....

Have you tried cleaning the CD? Does it have scratches on it. If it does it may not read it. If the CD looks like it has scratches or is bad you can take it to a video game store and they can buff it out for you and make it look like new. Then your computer may recognize it. You may even try it in another computer to see if your CD reader on your computer is bad.

Hi. Something might have happened to the boot manager of your computer. Here's the solution for this issue. You should have you Windows installation disk with you inorder to do this.

Boot off the Windows DVD and then click Next at the first prompt:

You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for "Repair your computer"

The installation process will attempt to find your installation directory. If there's more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.

Click the first link for "Startup Repair"

The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.

ALL depends on what part of your screen went...
What Symptoms did you see before the screen went ... if any..... (like Lines, Colors, Blank screen with light, black screen with No light, etc...)

Can You Plug An External Monitor In the Laptop To See If You Get External Video????

Do You Get A Backlight?? If Not, Do You Have A Display going but no light???
Or Is It Just Black Like it has no power to it... if the latter is true, you really need to connect it to an external video source to see if your video card / chip is shot..

Reformatted drive > windows update hang error

My guess is that you have used a faulty OS. Try to reinstall your operating system by using another disk that has an operating system on it. This has happened to me, and I found out the eithet the OS disk that i was using had nothing on it, or it was faulty and did not work. I bet that is what you are dealing with here.
