Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook

2 Answers

Power cord will not make consistent connection with computers

Both my Dell and Averatec laptops are not making good connections in order to recharge the batteries. I checked the Averatec with another power cord that I know worked fine with another Averatec computer, so, therefore, it appears to be a problem with the female end of the connetion. Is this common, and is it difficult to repair?

My Averatec does the same thing. My son found a temporary solution by having the right side of the laptop, where the connections are, at the edge of the table and having the cord hanging straight. It seems to work that way only. good luck.

Charger tips to small for dell laptop


A Dell Mini net book is a small and very portable laptop. The compact size makes it a good candidate for travel or just simply using around the house. Outdoor aficionados can get the most computing life out of a Dell Mini by finding a way to charge the battery outside. One method works when you are near a building while the other can be used for more remote outdoor locales

Things You'll Need
  • Extension cord
  • Solar laptop charger
  • Dell Mini power adapter

    • 1 Plug an extension cord into an available power outlet. Run the extension cord to where you are outside. Many homes also have exterior outlets. Use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. Plug the Dell Mini power adapter into the extension cord to charge the battery.
    • 2 Purchase a laptop solar charger. Solar chargers are available from several different manufacturers and may come in the form of a roll or be built into a case that closes up for travel. Depending on the charger, you may also need to purchase a Dell Mini power adapter. Some chargers work with a Dell Mini cigarette lighter adapter that is designed to plug into a vehicle's power port.
    • 3 Place the solar laptop charger in a sunny location. Open up the case if the charger is in one and roll it out flat or unfold it to expose all of the solar cells.
    • 4 Connect the Dell Mini power adapter to the power port on the solar charger. Connect the other end to the netbook. The adapter will regulate the charge coming from the solar panel and recharge the battery in the Dell Mini.
  1. Tips & Warnings
  2. Solar chargers offer less power than a wall outlet. They can be used to extend the battery life of a Dell Mini or to recharge the battery when the netbook is off.
  3. Some solar laptop chargers are relatively heavy. Take the weight into consideration if you are going to be backpacking or otherwise carrying it on your person.

I have dell c840. Suddenly only the left most light of the three lights gets orange when power is switched on and then there is no activity and screen remains blank. Bty light when plugged in also remain...


hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

Laptop is plugged in. Notice on screen that battery was low, even with it plugged in, and now no power lights on. Adapter light is still on indicating outside power supply on. Removed and reinserted...


The batteries do go bad overtime and will no longer hold a charge but the laptop should still work as long as the power cord is connected. If it still does not work with the power cord connected then it is most likely the power cord, these can go bad, but make sure that the power is securely connected and that if it is plugged into a power strip that it has not been turned off, try another outlet just to rule it out as well.

I need to hold manipulate power cord just right in


You can buy a replacement motherboard on ebay for $150, but then you will have to pay someone to replace it. That could cost as much as the motherboard itself, so it is up to you how much you are looking to spend on this system.

Good Luck

Powere adaptor has to be unplugged to boot


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Wont power up, power cord good. once plugged into laptop power cord stops working


As long as you are abslolutely sure the power cord is functional, without a more indepth analysis, it seems/sounds like the AC connection to the board is broken.

To rule out this conclusion as the failure point, see if you can borrow/buy or better yet, recharge your battery {assuming it has no charge left at this point}

Stick the charged battery into your rig and if it works, yes. The AC connection is broken - nothing a little bit of soldering won't fix.
If it works, will need to ask more 'protocol questions to narrow down the situation'.

...when you reflect on the usage of the laptop, is there a bit of manhandling when connecting the power cord? Do you run it mainly plugged into AC? Dell is infamous for dodgy AC connections strongly lending credence to a broken AC connection to the mobo.
