Auto restart and hard drive not spinning

When I turn on my everex nc1500 laptop on, within a time span of 5-20 minutes, it restarts itself. Plus, for about 4 months, the screen goes black and the hard drive doesn't even spin. Wasn't til 4 weeks ago, it barely started working again. Can anyone help me?

    With the computer turned off, and with the battery removed,

    take a can of compressed-air, read the instructions on the side of the can, and carefully blow compressed-air through the cooling vents into your computer, to blow-out any accumulated dust.

    I think that your computer is "dirty", and it is overheating after a while, and shutting itself down, to protect itself.

    Also, your hard-drive may be "dying" -- copy all important files (to USB memory-stick) and replace the hard-drive.

Try to boot it in safe mode pressing F8 key before the welcome screen shows up.See if that will let you access your files,if you will get another black screen it means that probably you got infected and it will be necesary to reinstall your OS

Everex StepNote NC1510 Model VA250E. No video on LCD screen. No video with external LCD screen either. Power and WiFi lights come on and hard drive spins for about 3 seconds. Then nothing else happens. ...

If it is still under warantee, take it back.. It has too many (different) hardware problems to warrant paying for service. replacement hardware would cost more than a new machine. Save your hard drives for the data and purchase a newer model.

Everex nc1500 laptop boots to system utilities and resets

your hard drive is corrupted. I have the same laptop that you have. There is a small partician for the utilities and the other big one for the windows.. the unit will not boot to the windows because that partician is corrupted and so it looks for the next bootable partition... the utility one. See if you can boot from your CD using an antivirus disc or system disc.. (you might have to change cmos to boot from it before the hard drive for this to work). If you can get it up, you might be able to repair the windows partition.
NOTE.. Since your utility partition works it seems, your drive sounds like it might be OK. If you can not get into your utility partition, your drive may have died.. (This is usually caused by dropping the laptop from more than 12 inches while it is running) like setting down hard on a desk for example (what I did to destroy my hardd drive).
Hope that helps, and that your drive is OK.

Everex Stepnote NC1500 wont boot

Are there any other lights on or any other activity, or does it just die? If it only pops up with the hard drive light briefly then dies, your laptop might just be dying because the battery isn't holding a charge.

I cant log in

Did you reinstall Widows or did you just restart the computer? If you reinstalled Windows, and you have the same issue, then the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
