Mitac Minote I have a "classic" Minote 8060B - P1454IW which is brilliant although getting a bit slow that has now decided to intermittetly turn out the screen fluoro lights. The image is still showing and performance is OK but I can't see the image. Two questions: Can this screen problem be easily fixed (new lights?) What is the easiest way to speed up the performance?

    As BIOS starts up I get a couple moments of screen display followed by the display flickering momentarily then no display. The notebook boots it's operating system normally and I can see that the windows graphics are on screen, just! Appears that the controller for the electroluminescent panel has failed!

Problem fixed. The screen surround came off easily to reveal the inverter circuit board. Having retrieved some useful data from "laptopscreensdirect" I made a simple resistor network across the output to the CCFL (lamp). It allowed me to measure the output using a multimeter, Looking for 200v rather than 20Kv. On switching on the lappy the meter flickered and then indicated 0v. I purchased a replacement inverter online from the above web-shop. Easily replaced, my screen was running within minutes.

Enter your bios settings, then find the power managemont, check to see if the system is set to conserve power, disable power savings and see if the problem persists.

How to slow fast idle on carburated 88 vtwin 2000 harley davidson?


Mine does that too. If you lower the idle it will then be too slow when the engine is cool. You might be able to lower the idle just a bit but don\'t go too far. Slow idle is hard on the connecting rods. Look at the carburetor. where the cables come down to the carb there is a small screw that you can turn to make adjustments. I would only turn in COUNTER clockwise 1/2 turn to begin with. If it idles too slow when cool you could always pull the choke out a bit but that can be a nuisance. Try that to see if it helps.

I have 2 C310x's that had been sitting unused for a long time. When I went to use them I had the same issue. I almost tossed them, but decided to leave the one connected to the computer for awhile. After an hour or two it came back to life. Tried that with the other one and it also came back after an extended period of time connected to the computer.

Mitac 8060b screen is really dull can only just make out any detail on screen has anyone any information as to why,thank you


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp

Although the screens are available from many places like Ebay and Craigslist, it is best to get it from the manufacturer, Mio. It may be more expensive, but it guaranteed to both fit and to work.
