Open up the inside of the notebook, and you should see a watch style battery. Just remove it while the notebook is turned off and unplugged, and that will reset the BIOS for you.

When you refer to "Reset bios" I am going to assume that you are talking about just setting the BIOS (system setup) back to defaults but are instead referring to reinstalling the Operating system software (Windows XP).

(If you DO mean that you want to set the defaults back in the BIOS, just take out the CMOS battery or check out Chapter 6 in the manual below to read about the default factory settings in the BIOS Setup Utility).

If you don't have any of the CD's that came with that system, you will have to purchase an installation CD for Windows XP if you wish to reinstall.

I checked in the user manual for the 3200 series of that manufacturer and it states that you will need to install from the CD's that come with the system. I was looking to see if they create a partition on the hard drive that contains an image that you could restore from, but sadly, they don't do that.

Here is a link to the user manual. Check on page 48 to read what they have to say about Changing battery and BIOS setup. there you can reset the CMOS if that will help.

Follow this step to remove the battery. this will automatically reset the BIOS:
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Close the screen cover and turn the computer over.
3. Slide the side battery latch away from the battery. Continue to hold it until the battery is removed.
4. Remove the battery.
5. Make sure the replacement battery is properly orientated. Slide back the side battery latch then insert the main battery into the battery compartment. Check that the latch locks back into position.

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.

I cant remember my bios pass word what can i do ?


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

I have an averatech 3200, the screen suddenly become dark, after reboot, it will only bring the Averatec logo page, and then it will remain dark. Is there something wrong with the monitor?


If you are getting the logo in the beginning that means screen is fine. Reset defaults for BIOS and try booting your computer with the help of disk.

I have averatec 3200 boot failure how to rboot it


Boot failures are generally caused by the system not seeing the hard drive or not being able to read it. You should enter the system bios and see if it can see the hard drive or see if the system sees it while booting up. It could just have some bad files or bad sectors. Where it's in a notebook it probably doesn't have a bad connection. You can also boot off your system CD and choose recovery and see if you can see the hard drive.

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.
