My Everex XT5000T laptop only turns on after I let it heat up

One day my Everex StepNote XT5000T laptop will not turn on. Nothing appears on the screen but the fan works. There's nothing wrong with the AC adapter.

I saw a quick fix from another forum and this is the only way I get to make my laptop to run... while plugged in, I power on the laptop (with black screen and hard drive not responding) and cover the vent with a towel for 45 mins. or so until the laptop gets very, very hot. I then unplug it, remove the towel and let it cool down for about 30 mins. I don't know why, but this actually works almost 95% of the time. The only time it doesn't is when I don't let it heat up as much when I'm in a hurry to use the laptop.

Everex customer support said it's most probably the motherboard. They won't really know until I send it in to be diagnosed. My laptop works completely fine when it does power on so for the timebeing I'm just dealing with it. I've seen the same problem on several other forums but no one has a permament solution. Has anyone else encountered this and how were you able to fix it? Thanks

They are correct its the motherboard and the system nees to be reurned to the factory ASAP, as you have a serious and possible dangerous situation and it needs immed. attention, or the computer replaced

My everex stepnote laptop randomly stops seeing the wireless adaptor, and when \i look in device manager, doesnt see the wireless connection at all


I had a similar issue with mine. The wireless adapter has an IRQ issue, which may explain the issue. I would recommend turning it off and replacing it with either a mini PCIe wireless card (such as the intel 3 or 4000 series which are like $8-15 on ebay) or a USB wifi card.

My everex xt5000t laptop freezes and the mouse will not move when it freezes what will fix this problem


Turn off the wireless switch then turn it on. No seriously... there's an IRQ issue with the wireless card. It can be fixed if you load Windows 7 on there or if you replace / disable the wirless card.

Here's a link to the fix and more fixes for this laptop

I have a everex stepnote XT5000T and the it turns on but the screen stays black.what could be the problem?


It may be that the display output toggle has been set to "external monitor" ... try Fn+F3 .... to toggle it from your screen, to external monitor to both ... and see if the screen works.
If this doesn't work, connect an external monitor to your computer, and toggle it, to see if the monitor displays the screen contents. If this works, then it's possible that your LCD screen is faulty ("fried")
