    My 6200 won't even power up. I've had this unit 1 year and has been great, except for the fact it gets VERY hot. I think the power supply may be fried. Help!

    My Averatec 6200 laptop was working fine in the evening. I left it running overnight and the next morning it was shut down and will show no signs of life upon attempting to startup. I expect it overheated, as there was a "dust wad" at the fan discharge. Removed this, but still no startup occurs. Is there some kind of thermal protective feature that requires resetting?

    My averatec 6200 isn't turning on at all...I heard some crackling noise after I had shut it off last night but when I tried to start it up the next day, it just wouldn't turn on. Can someone please tell me what the heck happened to it and how I could fix this problem???

    When I try to plug the power supply cord back into the laptop, I hear a faint cracking noise in the port for just a second & when I touch the power button, nothing happened. The first time it happened, the windows loading screen came on for a few seconds but it shutdown before it loads.
    My laptop has a really bad habit of overheating before all this happened as it's not exactly new (XP) and the fan never worked well to begin with.

Buy a laptop cooler, the more fans the better. If your handy with a drill, remove the cover from the bottom of the comp. you will see the heatsink it is copper in color, mark out it's directional layout using a piece of paper, then transfer this pattern to the cover. Drill some 1/8" oles along the pattern. This will give the laptop cooler more holes to push air into the comp. works great my laptop is now working better after hours of use.
Also, buy a new hard drive there not that expensive and easy to install, use the software that you have that came with the laptop and reload the new drive.
Buy a 2.5 remote hard drive case with a usb connection, reload your files on the new drive.
Even if you thhink the hd is no good it will sometimes almost always be readab. but will not boot the system due to bad sectors.

When the laptop over heats simply unplug the AC cord and remove the battery. Then hold the power button for approx 1 minute. Place the battery back and plug it in and the laptop should power back up just fine.

An easy fix! On the bottom of the 6200 are some vent slits to bring air in, over some heat syncs and out on your right hand and mouse. Dust is sucked in the bottom and collects in a cute little felt pad blocking the heat syncs. Remove the screws and slide the panel to remove. Inside are three more screws holding the fan. Being careful to not drop the screws into your PC (!!!) remove the fan. Inside you will see the dust. I recommend holding the PC right side up and working so things fall out of the PC instead of in to it. Depending on how dusty of an environment you work in you may need to do this every few months or maybe only every few years.

Good luck, and don’t drop screws into your Notebook :-)

How can I get my laptop to start? I can't even get it to safe mode!

You will need to repair the Microsoft Windows installation using the orginal recovery disk that came with your notebook.

Also the laptop is overheating, clean the intake and exhaust vents.

Take care!

Can not take a part my averatec 6200

There is no such manual as this is a dangerous self fix. Look for a generic OEM replacement on Ebay.

The cursor key on my Averatec 6200 laptop is locked. I don't have a mouse, just the touchpad. I've tried shutting it off for awhile, using the Fn and F9 keys. no luck. please help.

Okay. Now I take it that the button is stuck in the depressed position? That's a physical (hardware) problem. You might be able to pop it back up again by attaching a fairly sticky piece of tape to it and pulling up on it, then carefully removing the tape. If this works, try not to press so hard on the button. If it doesn't work, you can either get the touchpad assembly replaced (not cheap), or just use a regular mouse (PS/2 or USB) with the notebook.

My Averatec turns on to the logo screen but keeps resarting

dude heres the deal the blue screen is from a lack of ram simple as that. just add more ram and you shouldn't have that problem anymore. then when the computer starts up reset the page file to double the amount of your ram. that should get rid of the blue screen and you should have a running unit. if this doesn't work then you are best off reinstalling the OS.
