Question about Everex StepNote XT5000T Notebook

Everx Lap Top

My computer was running great and all of a sudden the screen went black. I can not get the screen to show anything or start up windows. It runs,because I can hear it. Do you think I need a new battery? It still won't come up with the a/c adapter on.

    My video card went bad in Jan 2009. I was still under the one year mark. I called customer (bad)service and they had me send my computer to them. I just got it back three weeks ago (end of April). It worked fine for a couple of weeks then the video card crashed again. I have been calling 866-850-8835 for four hours. I'm reaching a fax line or it just rings for a long time until I automatically get cut off. I tried calling 510-252-8888 but get caught in a loop of recordings. I have also sent an email, but have not gotten a reply. Have they gone out of business???!!! I own three Everexes and they all have problems.

I have the same exact problem with my Everex XT5000T. It is the Nvidia 7600go video card. If you call Everex at: 1-866-850-8835They will tell you they realize there is an issue with the video card and will replace at no cost, even if it is a refurbished computer and even if its past warranty. Thats what I did today and it will be out in the mail tomorrow.

On the XT5000T with a screen saver, there's a time at which the screen goes black or "goes to sleep." Intermittently, it seems that mouse/keyboard activity does not wake it back up, as it should. In the past, the solution's been as-easy as closing and re-opening the lid for me (ie. toggling the screen's close button, underneath the hinge), and it fixes itself.

I imagine the root of the problem is actually a driver issue, but I've yet to find an update that fixes this completely... so far I've been lucky that the solution's been easy, however.

Darkened screen as you describe indicates a failing inverter. You can test this easily by plugging the laptop into an external monitor, if this works ok, then the inverter needs replaced, If it does not work, the problem is with the graphics chip / motherboard

Lap top screen is black


If you are running with XP try switching the unit on and pressing F8 while the computer is booting up

This should put you into Safe Mode

If that works go to Start , Accessories, System Tools ,System Restore and if the shop did the right thing when they built it you will have the System Restore function running
Ask the machine to do a System Restore and it should give you a number of dates to restore to, pick on that is a few days before the last update and let it roll
