Question about Everex StepNote XT5000T Notebook
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
