1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

I have a averatec 7100 and in 3 weeks I tried to on the power and it would not on. no power the adeptor is on I checked to see if there is a power on the adeptor but the laptop is not charging the battery...


Try removing the battery and then plug in the power adapter and try to power it on. If no good, get someone to test the power adapter with a voltage meter. The adapter may be dead. If the power adapter is okay, you may need to buy a new laptop.

Please let me know what happens, and I may be able to help more.

After hitting power button to turn laptop on it turns itself off after 2 seconds and keeps turning off and on untill I remove the battery

Remove the battery & connect it via power cable then turn on . If its working then you need to replace the battery. Another way is disconnect the power cable & run the laptop via battery If its working then the problem cames from power cable adeptor. Now if your seen both way same problem its mean the SMPS its damaged and its not able to transfer the power in to the motherboard. Remove it & check the SMPS.As well as RAM too. Thanks & waiting for your Feedback.
