Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook

1 Answer

My Averatec 3200 turns of randomly...

Every now and then my Averatec randomly shuts down. Sometimes it shuts down after just a few seconds of being on, but other times it can work for a few hours just fine. Some things I have noticed is that the fan is noisier than usual, my AC power light flickers a lot, and the plug that feeds AC power is very hot.

Check the CPU and Fan/Heatsink assembly. I have a pretty good feeling that the CPU is heating up too much and is not being cooled properly. There may be lint or dust clogged in the fan. You can get access to this pretty easy by removing a few screws on the bottom panel that houses the CPU/fan.

I have an Averatec 3200 xp home edition. It was a gift. All that came with it was the power cord. How do i reset factory settings?


If laptops do not come with an installation disc, sometimes there is a setting in the BIOS which will allow reseting to factory settings. When the computer is first turned on, it will usually provide a specific key to access the BIOS or setup screen.

Averatec 3200 PC Notebook freezes at startup but


I suspect one of your startup items to be causing this problem. I suggest you to disable the startup items in safe mode and then try booting in normal mode.

Since you have already tried in safe mode i believe you know how to get in there so lets start from second part on how to disable the start up items.

Step1: Click on start and then click on Run.
Step 2: Type msconfig and hit ENTER.
Step 3: Click on Startup tab.
Step 4: Click on Disable all then click on apply and then Click on OK.
Step 5: Your system will be prompted for a reboot. Go ahead and restart it.
Step 6: As soon as the system is backup you would get system configuration utility screen where in you should check "Don't show this message again".

If you are curious to know which start up item is causing this problem then you might want to try enabling few at a time and narrow down.

My laptop shuts down randomly after a blue screen pops up


Hello

OK, this is more a clarification than the actual answer, but, this will help me to give you the most effective answer possible.

Can you hear the fan spin louder than it usually did?
Also, did you have any overheating problems ion the past?

Let me know, just post a comment.

Kind regards

I replaced my averatec 3200 hard drive 40gb with 110gb.. does it affect the the whole system? coz sometimes it suddenly shuts down... and one more thing, whenever i run NFS game, the graphics is too...


the hard drive would cause the problem if the hard drive was bad, like if it had bad sectors on it and it couldn't write info to certain parts of the hard drive.

System shutting down on its own could be spyware or a bad hard drive would cause that as well.

As far as graphics are concerned make sure your video drivers are installed cause if there not then the graphics wouldn't be as good. Make sure you get the latest drivers from the averatec website.

If your worried about the hard drive, put in another one but make sure its a new one so you know you have the best chance of it working properly.

My averatec series 3200 notebook cant detect my usb device


The flash disk could be faulty, especially when it draws too much power, and this will cause the USB ports to shut down and the other USB devices won't work until the faulty device is removed.

My Averatec turns on to the logo screen but keeps resarting


dude heres the deal the blue screen is from a lack of ram simple as that. just add more ram and you shouldn't have that problem anymore. then when the computer starts up reset the page file to double the amount of your ram. that should get rid of the blue screen and you should have a running unit. if this doesn't work then you are best off reinstalling the OS.

Hi NuvoTechie,

Try this. Do a restart, and see if that error occurs. Then try shutting fully down, hold the power button in for 10 sec, and see if it works OK from a cold boot. Don't have a solution, but I have to do the same on my Averatec, and thier suppor is no help.

Averatec 3200 Laptop turns on for like 2 seconds then shuts off


Im sure the virus would have stopped a boot up unless is was a bios virus which is rare. It's sounds to me as if it's a processor problem, it seems to work at first which suggests the motherboard is working, but then as soon as the pc starts to work hard which is on start up its either getting too hot then shutting down or simply damaged. I assume you cannot get into the bios as it shuts off too quick, but you may still be able to clear the bios by locating the cmos battery and flipping out, as the bios may not be seeing your hard drive and crashing,this will make your laptop pause in the bios first, so trying to get in the bios may be a step forward so as to get the laptop to see your new drive.
