Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook
The power jack plug was loose (battery light would flicker on & off when plug was moved), I removed & resoldered. Now the connection is fine but after using the computer for several minutes it will suddenly shut off. No "hibernating" window or anything, just shuts off. Will restart but just does it again. Any suggestions? Thanks
The power jack plug is still loose. Tad risky opening up the shell like that, perhaps the problem was deeper than just the jack....I am curious if it can do a full battery charge if you left it recharge for a couple of hours.
