Question about Averatec C3500 Tablet PC

Need to fix AC adapter plug in

Hi, I have an Averatec C3500. Works great except the plug in for the adapter has come loose. It should be an easy enough fix, if I could get to the thing, but opening the chassis is proving harder than I thought. I have unscrewed every screw I can find, and still find that it is hung together somehow at the back of the device. I don't want to force it and break something important. Any advice, other than take it to a shop?

I'm trying to repair the same thing right now.

to get the case apart, the hangup screws are under the keyboard. to remove the keyboard, you must remove the small plastic (1"x8") strip that has the power button and indicator leds on it.

to remove it, go along the top of the keyboard, closest to the screen, there are 5 plastic tabs to be released, then pop only that side closest to the keyboard up, then, slowly work it around until it comes free. flip the keyboard towards you, and carefully remove its ribbon cable by first popping up the sockets (on the mb) retainer.

then you can get those last screws out and have at it.

peace!

    Holy crappo! almost forgot, before you try to pull the plastic panel loose, there are 2 screws holding it's back side.

    you have to take off the small plastic panel on the back of the laptop, its 2 screws are on the back face of the laptop. take those out, remove the small plastic panel that covers the back of the monitor swivel, then you can get the screws off for the long panel.

After re formating my averatec c3500 series touch pad wont work


Your new install of Windows will be using generic drivers. You need to update to the specific touchpad drivers. Download them from Trigem (Averatec is a brand name owned by trigem) http://www.trigem.com/us/support/drivers.asp

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.

The DVD drive for my Averatec C3500 does not eject.


First check the bios settings, set to the default settings.

You can dowload a bootable linux CD from here:
http://www.knoppix.org/  (I recommend the v3.3)

If you can use a cd with that it is a software problem.
