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.

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

My Averatec 3200 keeps shutting itself down. The


A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.

After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!

Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.

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.

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.
